The following steps describe how to retrieve new
licenses using an authentication (
) code and push the
license keys to managed firewalls. It also describes how to manually
update (refresh) the license status of firewalls that do not have
direct internet access. For firewalls that have direct internet
access, Panorama™ automatically performs a daily check-in with the
licensing server, retrieves license updates and renewals, and pushes
them to the firewalls. The check-in is hard-coded to occur between
1 a.m. and 2 a.m.; you cannot change this schedule.
cannot use Panorama to activate the support license for firewalls.
You must access the firewalls individually to activate their support licenses.

WildFire® subscriptions only
) Perform a
commit on each firewall that has a new WildFire subscription to
complete the activation:

You must access each firewall web interface to do this.
If no configuration changes are pending, make a minor change
. For example, update a rule description
and commit the change. If the firewalls belong to the same device
group, you can push the rule change from Panorama to initiate a
commit on all those firewalls instead of accessing each firewall
