Activate Credits

Activate Software NGFW credits in the CSP.
Within your organization you can create many accounts, each with a different purpose. During activation you can choose only one account per default credit pool. Once you the credit pool is active, users granted the credit administrator role can allocate the credits for deployments, and even transfer credits to other pools.
If you have an existing CSP account and are a superuser or an admin, the system automatically adds the credit admin role to your profile. If you do not have an existing account, the CSP automatically creates an account for you and adds the credit admin role to your profile.
You (the purchaser) receive an email detailing the subscription, the credit pool ID, the subscription start and end date, the amount of credits purchased, and the description of the default credit pool (see “default credit pools” in VM-Series Firewall Licensing).
Secure this email for future reference.
