Kaspersky Security Center

Automatic distribution of a license key

14 April 2024

ID 180049

Kaspersky Security Center allows automatic distribution of license keys to managed devices if they are located in the license keys repository on the Administration Server.

To distribute a license key to managed devices automatically:

  1. In the main menu, go to OperationsLicensingKaspersky licenses.
  2. Click the name of the license key that you want to distribute to devices automatically.
  3. In the license key properties window that opens, select the Automatically distribute license key to managed devices check box.
  4. Click the Save button.

The license key will be automatically distributed to all compatible devices.

License key distribution is performed by means of Network Agent. No license key distribution tasks are created for the application.

During automatic distribution of a license key, the licensing limit on the number of devices is taken into account. The licensing limit is set in the properties of the license key. If the licensing limit is reached, distribution of this license key on devices ceases automatically.

Note that an automatically distributed license key may not be displayed in the virtual Administration Server repository in the following cases:

  • The license key is not valid for the application.
  • The virtual Administration Server does not have managed devices.
  • The license key has already been used for devices managed by another virtual Administration Server and the limit on the number of devices has been reached.

If you select the Automatically distribute license key to managed devices check box in the license key properties window, a license key is distributed on your network immediately. If you do not select this option, you can manually distribute a license key later.
