License Management Overview

 

Starting in Junos Space Security Director Release 19.4R1, you can manage the licenses for features such as antispam, antivirus, IDP signature, Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (Juniper Sky ATP), and unified threat management (UTM). You can also manage the license for virtual appliance. You can deploy the license on the device(s) managed by Security Director and view the history of pushed licenses. You can upload the license file or copy and paste the license key to deploy the license on the corresponding device(s). Each license supports a single or multiple features, which is valid only on a single device. You can select a single SRX Series device and multiple vSRX devices to deploy the license. Each license allows you to run the corresponding advanced software feature(s) on a single device.

You can view the following license information of devices managed by Security Director:

  • Total Licenses—Total number of licenses installed on devices managed by Security Director.

  • Used—Number of licenses currently being used on the device. If a feature license exists and the feature is configured on a device, then the license is considered as a used license.

  • Oversubscribed—Number of licenses used that are more than the installed licenses.

    For example: In capacity type license, users buy a license for certain events per second but system processes more events than licensed.

  • Undersubscribed—Number of licenses used that are less than the installed licenses.

  • Expiring—Number of licenses that are about to expire within 30 days.

  • Expired—Number of expired licenses.

You can hover over the numbers in the Licenses page to view the device and license details. You can view all devices that are discovered and managed by Security Director, with installed license details. You can use the ViewBy option to filter the license details. You can also search, sort, or filter the license details using parameters such as device name, device IP address, device family, platform, expired licenses, licenses that are going to expire, and so on.

Different icons are shown to indicate if the license is valid, expiring, or expired.

Note
  • If the validity of the license is more than 30 days, then feature license status is shown in green icon.

  • If the validity of the license is less than 30 days, then feature license status is shown in yellow icon.

  • If the license has expired, then feature license status is shown in red icon.

You can push the license on devices managed by Security Director and view the history of pushed licenses on devices.

You can configure the schedule for polling devices for license details. If you want to send notification regarding licenses that are about to expire, you can enable the license notification settings and add the e-mail recipients. E-mail will be sent to the configured recipient with license expiry details.

Based on RBAC permission, you can perform actions such as deploy license on devices, view license information of a specific device, view the history of pushed licenses, and so on. To provide the required RBAC permission, select Administration > Users & Roles.
