  1. Concepts related to license application on the ESDP include the following:
    1. Entitlement

      Entitlement is a form of agreement between a software provider and a customer, which entitles the customer to the scope, functions, validity period of the product purchased or sold.

    2. Entitlement ID

      An entitlement ID is a unique ID that identifies entitlement.

    3. Entitlement Line

      An entitlement line is a unit of entitlement that can be activated. Entitlement contains one or multiple entitlement lines.

    4. Activation ID

      An activation ID is a unique ID that identifies an entitlement line.

    5. Equipment (Node)

      A piece of equipment or node is a system device, entity, or node.

  2. On the ESDP, entitlement is managed by equipment (node). License application is also based on equipment (node).


  1. Select entitlement.
    1. On the home page of the ESDP, choose License Activation > Entitlement Activation. The Step 1: Select Entitlement page is displayed.

    3. Select one or more entitlement lines from the list. Click Next. The Step 2: Binding Of ESN page is displayed.
