Menu path: UMS Administration > Global Configuration > Licenses > Deployment

You can enable and configure the automatic deployment of licenses by the UMS. Automatic license deployment includes licenses for UDC3/OSC, UMA and UD Pocket.

Demo licenses are not supported by Automatic License Deployment. To deploy a demo license, see Activate Your IGEL OS.

Automatic license deployment requires a connection between the UMS and the IGEL license server as well as the IGEL update server. This connection can be established via a proxy.

For details about the process of automatic license deployment, see Intervals for Automatic License Deployment.

If a number of Product Packs for which suitable and non-allocated licenses are available, a selection will be made in accordance with the following criteria:
  • The Product Pack with the most allocated licenses will be used first.
  • Product Packs with an earlier registration date will be used before Product Packs with a later registration date.

As soon as a license is registered in the UMS, the UMS stores the license and adds a license download link to the device settings. After that, the UMS sends the settings to the devices. When the devices have received their settings, they download the licenses and reboot. After the reboot, all licensed features are available on the devices.

For further information about setting up and using automatic license deployment, see Setting up Automatic License Deployment (ALD).
