License System Notifications

JSA Console manages all the licenses in the deployment. Daily system notifications generate before and after a license expires.

The following table displays the JSA components that depend on active licenses.

Table 1: Effects Of a JSA Expired License

Type of expired license



When the JSA console license expires, event sources or flow sources that are forwarded directly to the Console are not processed or stored.

Existing data is not affected. Until the Console license is renewed, direct event sources to a managed host with a valid license in the deployment.

Managed host

When a managed host license expires in your deployment, host context is disabled on that managed host. The expired appliance does not process event or flow data.


When a feature license expires, such as X-Force, the feature stops receiving data updates. The feature relies on the latest data stream provided by X-Force.

Removing a License to Prevent Recurring System Notifications

When a JSA appliance expires, the appliance cannot be used until its license is updated.

If a feature, such as X-Force, has an expired license, delete the license to prevent recurring system notifications.

If you have high-availability (HA) appliances, delete the secondary HA host license.
