Configuring Subscriptions (SRC CLI)


After you add subscribers, you configure subscriptions for the subscribers. Residential or enterprise subscribers may also be able to configure subscriptions through the portal, and managers assigned to a subscriber object may be able to configure subscriptions for that object.

You must add a service to the directory before you can specify that service for subscribers. See Services for the SRC Software Overview.

After you configure a subscription to a service, the service is available to the subscriber through the portal. Depending on the configuration, the subscriber may need to activate the service. You can configure schedules to define when services are available to subscribers. See Service Schedules Overview.

To allow a subscriber to have a number of subscriptions to a service at the same time, each subscription:

  • Must have its own parameter substitutions.

  • Can be activated or deactivated independently.

An object for each subscription is created in the directory. The name of the object has the following format:

  • <ServiceName>—Name of the service

  • <SubscriptionId>—Name of the subscription

Other than the naming convention, multiple subscriptions are identical to regular subscriptions.


To configure a subscription to a service:

  1. From configuration mode, enter the subscription configuration. In this procedure, peter is the name of the subscriber and Video-Gold is the name of the subscription.

  2. (Optional) Configure the status of the service subscription.

  3. (Optional) Specify how the service is activated.

  4. (Optional) Specify when the SAE should activate this subscription relative to the subscriber’s other subscriptions that are configured to activate on login. The value range is 0–21,474,863,647. By default, the activation order is set as 10,000.


    When a subscriber logs out, the SAE deactivates the associated active service sessions in the reverse order in which they were previously activated.

  5. (Optional) Configure the actual values for parameters associated with this subscription.

  6. (Optional) Verify your configuration.
