Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console allows you to distribute a license key to client devices automatically or through the add key task.

Before deployment, add the license key to the Administration Server repository.

To distribute a license key to client devices through the add key task:

  1. In the main menu, go to Assets (Devices) → Tasks.
  2. Click Add.

    The New task wizard starts. Proceed through the wizard by using the Next button.

  3. In the Application drop-down list, select the application for which you want to add a license key.
  4. In the Task type list, select the Add key task.
  5. In the Task name field, specify the name of the new task.
  6. Select the devices to which the task will be assigned.
  7. At the Selecting a license key step of the wizard, click the Add key link to add the license key.
  8. On the key adding pane, add the license key by using one of the following options:

    You need to add the license key only if you did not add it to the Administration Server repository prior to creating the add key task.

    • Select the Enter activation code option to enter an activation code, and then do the following:
      1. Specify the activation code, and then click the Send button.

        Information about the license key appears in the key adding pane.

      2. Click the Save button.

        If you want to distribute the license key to managed devices automatically, enable the Automatically distribute license key to managed devices option.

        The key adding pane closes.

    • Select the Add key file option to add a key file, and then do the following:
      1. Click the Select key file button.

        Information about the license key appears in the license key adding pane.

      3. Click the Save button.

        If you want to distribute the license key to managed devices automatically, enable the Automatically distribute license key to managed devices option.

  10. At the License information step of the wizard, enable the Use as a reserve key option if you want to use this key as a reserve key.

    In this case, a reserve key is applied after the active key expires.

  11. At the Finish task creation step of the wizard, enable the Open task details when creation is complete option to modify the default task settings.

    If you do not enable this option, the task will be created with the default settings. You can modify the default settings later.

    The wizard creates the task. If you enabled the Open task details when creation is complete option, the task properties window automatically opens. In this window, you can specify the general task settings and, if required, change the settings specified during task creation.
