You can license vRealize Log Insight individually or as part of vRealize Suite.

  2. On the My services page, click Locker.
  3. In the navigation pane, click Licenses.

  4. To add the license manually, click Add license manually, enter the vRealize Suite or vRealize Log Insight license alias and key.

  5. Click Validate.

  6. After successful validation, click Add.
