Overview

Note for Managed Service Providers (MSP)

This method is NOT appropriate if you want to manage devices of several clients with one single UMS; for this use case, you should use Automatic License Deployment (ALD) with ALD Token.

You can configure the UMS to automatically assign licenses to devices. When Automatic License Deployment (ALD) is configured, and the UMS finds a device that needs a license, it fetches a license from the IGEL Licensing Service (ILS) and deploys it to the device automatically. The license is derived from a Product Pack; you can monitor the current license consumption using the IGEL License Portal (ILP). 

The typical use cases are as follows:

  • Assigning licenses from an IGEL Workspace Edition (WE) Product Pack to new devices while registering the devices to the UMS 
  • Renewing licenses from an IGEL Workspace Edition (WE) Product Pack
  • Assigning licenses from an IGEL Enterprise Management Pack (EMP) to a selection of device
