License Key Checks Removed

The requirement for a License Key based on customer contracted entitlement was removed from the products in V12.2.2. 

This was for a number of reasons:

  • Multiple Customer requests
  • Customer survey feedback
  • Removal of a License Generation process which does not add any meaningful value for the customer or Broadcom
  • Removal of any risk of a customer outage due to a missing/expired license key 

 

Telemetry

Telemetry functionality was added into the solution in V12.2.2

This enables information about usage to be sent to the Broadcom organisation if the customer agrees.

On first login to Client 0, you will be asked to Activate your product. Telemetry can be found in the documentation here Telemetry

The Site ID requested is available in any support ticket communication.
