• When the threat defense is migrated to the cloud, all feature licenses associated with the device are transferred to CDO and released from the management center to the Smart License pool. The device reclaims the device-specific licenses during its registration with CDO. You need not apply license on the device again.

  • The device-specific licenses are not required if you want to keep devices in the management center for analytics.

  • Ensure you have registered the cloud-delivered Firewall Management Center with a smart license.
