Content Security Appliances FAQ: How do you determine the licensed features that are enabled on your Cisco Content Security appliance?

Introduction

This document describes how to determine the licensed features that are enabled on your Cisco Content Security appliance.

Prerequisites

Requirements

Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:

  • Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA)
  • Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA)
  • Cisco Security Management Appliance (SMA)
  • AsyncOS

How do you determine the licensed features that are enabled on your Cisco Content Security appliance?

Each of the software components, or features, of the Content Security appliance is licensed and must be enabled before use. In order to enable these components, you must apply feature keys that are provided by Cisco Global Licensing Operations (GLO) through product license registration. Each feature key is specific to the serial number of the individual Content Security appliance and has an expiration period that is associated with it. When a feature key expires, you must renew the contract for that feature with your Cisco representative in order to continue the use of the feature.

Note: A Dormant/Perpetual key indicates that there is no expiration period.

In order to determine the licensed features that are enabled on your Content Security appliance, simply log into the appliance and enter the featurekey command into the CLI. As an alternative, you can access the System Administration tab from the GUI and click Feature Keys.

Here is an example output from the featurekey CLI command:

Note: Please refer to the "Adding and Manging Feature Keys" section of the User Guide for further details.
