• Path: Settings - License


Make sure that the correct date and time are set (see Changing Hostname and Time Settings). Otherwise, installing the license may fail with an "invalid license" message.

If your license is about to expire, you will be notified at the top of the content area.

If no license is active, the throughput of Threat Defender is limited to 1 Mbit/s (transmitted and received traffic in total) and no assets are tracked. Also, the system is not able to connect to the license and update server.

To apply a license to your cognitix Threat Defender installation, proceed as follows:

  1. Navigate to Settings > License.

  2. Click the ADD button. The license upload screen opens.

  3. Paste the license token into the License token field.

  4. Click SAVE to store the license and close the upload screen.
    The license information is displayed as an entry in the overview table.

    Note: Only one license may be enabled at a time. When you add a new license, it is enabled by default and any previously active license is automatically disabled.
