What to do next

When you create an Edge, you can choose and assign an Edge License from the list.

You can assign a license to an existing Edge:

  • In the Enterprise portal, click Configure > Edges.
  • To assign license to each Edge, click the link to the Edge and select the License in the Edge Overview page. You can also select the Edge and click Actions > Assign Edge License to assign the License.
  • To assign a license to multiple Edges, select the appropriate Edges, click Actions > Assign Edge License, and select the License.
Note: If Edge Licensing is disabled, then the Assign Edge License option is not available for the Edges. The Enterprise Admin user can create an Edge without the Edge license.
