Policy Editor Licensing

Privilege Management for Windows requires a valid license code to be entered in the Privilege Management Policy Editor. If more than one policy is applied to a computer, you need at least one valid license code for one of those policies.

For example, you could add the Privilege Management for Windows license to a Privilege Management policy that is applied to all managed endpoints, even if it doesn't have any Workstyles. This ensures all endpoints receive a valid license if they have Privilege Management for Windows installed. If you are unsure, then we recommend you add a valid license when you create the Privilege Management policy.

To add a license:

  1. In the console, select Policies from the sidebar menu.
  2. Find the row of the policy, and click the vertical ellipsis. Click Edit & Lock Policy from the dropdown menu.
  3. Expand the Utilities node.
  4. Click the Licenses node.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Enter the license key, and then click Add License.

Import Policy

Privilege Management policies can be imported to and exported from Group Policy as XML files, in a format common to other editions of Privilege Management, such as the Privilege Management ePO Extension. Policies can be migrated and shared between different deployment mechanisms.

  1. In the Policy Editor, expand Utilities.
  2. Select Import Policy.
  3. Select one of the following:
    • Merge Policy
    • Overwrite Policy: If you select to overwrite, you can optionally select Export Existing Policy to save a copy before overwriting the policy.
  1. Drop the file onto the box or click inside the box to navigate to the file.
  2. Click Upload File.
