IPS Subscription

‎08-28-2018 09:17 AM

Some quick fire quesitons to earn some Kudos 🙂


Is there a way to see what time is left for a 1 year subscription for IPS on an SRX1500?


Are subscriptions purchased on a "per year" basis or longer? In other words, once the subscription time has passed, will the IPS cease functioning?

You can see the expiry date and time via 'show system licenses' - example below from a SRX which previously had a evaluation license installed.


IPS will stop function after the end date and time in the license.


Subscription licenses for the SRX series can be bought for 1, 3 or 5 year period up front. You will get a bit lower price per year if you buy 3 or 5 years (between 10% and 15%). Subscriptions are named SRX1500-IPS-1, SRX1500-IPS-3, SRX1500-IPS-5.
