Release 1.0.0 New and Changed Features

This section describes the new features and enhancements to the Juniper Agile License Manager 1.0.0 Release.

  • Juniper Agile Licensing (vMX and vBNG)— Juniper Agile Licensing is a solution to manage licenses for all your Juniper devices. Agile Licensing provides simplified and centralized license administration and deployment.

    Juniper Agile Licensing Portal— The Juniper Agile Licensing Portal enables you to install and manage licenses for hardware and software features. For more information about Agile Licensing keys and capabilities, see Juniper Agile Licensing portal FAQ.

    Juniper Agile License Manager—The Juniper Agile License Manager is a software application that runs on your network and provides an on-premise repository of licenses that are dynamically consumed by Juniper Networks devices and applications as required. Integration with Juniper's Entitlement Management System and Portal provides a natural extension of the existing user experience that enables you to manage all your licenses.

    License Key Exchange — To use the licenses for vMX and vBNG features in Junos OS Release 19.2R1 and above, you need new license keys. Previous license keys are supported for previous Junos OS releases, but for Junos OS Release 19.2 and above releases, you need to migrate existing licenses (one-time activity). Contact Customer Care to exchange previous licenses. Note that you can choose either to use individual license keys for each device or to deploy Juniper Agile License Manager for more efficient management of licenses.

    It is not mandatory to install the Agile License Manager to use vMX or vBNG licenses on Junos OS Release 19.2R1 and later releases. The Agile License Manager is a new option that provides more efficient management of licenses. You can continue to use individual license keys for each device if required.

    Existing license keys are not supported on Junos OS Release 19.2R1 and later releases. Contact Customer Care for exchanging previous license keys.

    [See Juniper Agile Licensing Guide for more details on how to obtain, install, and use the Agile License Manager.]
