2. Go to the License page. Enable Auto-Active and enable Auto-Renewal for sites.

For the Controller in MSP View

1. Launch your controller.

2. Go to the License page. Enable Auto-Active and enable Auto-Renewal for customers.

3. 2 Manual Binding/Unbinding

If you don’t want the controller to automatically assign device licenses, you can manually bind and unbind device licenses.

1. Launch your controller.

2. Go to the Devices page.

3. Bind or unbind device licenses according to your needs.

  • To bind a device license:

Locate a non-activated device and click Activate. In the License Status section, choose an appropriate license to bind. You can bind a new license or a used license (such as the one last bound). If you have many used licenses, you can search by license key or MAC.

  • To unbind a device license:

Click an activated device to open the Properties window. In the License Status section, click
Unbind. The license will be unbound and can be bound to another device if needed.

Note: When the reassignment status hits 0, the license will be unable to be bound to other devices except the current device.
