Use the Product Activation task to activate an ESET security product on a client computer or a mobile device.

Select one of the following options to create a new Client Task:

Click Tasks > New > add_new_defaultClient Task.

Click Tasks > select the desired task type and click New > add_new_defaultClient Task.

Click the target device in Computers and select icon_tasks Tasks > add_new_defaultNew Task.

Basic

In the Basic section, type basic information about the task, such as a Name and Description (optional). Click Select tags to assign tags.
In the Task drop-down menu, select the task type you want to create and configure. If you have selected a specific task type before creating a new task, Task is pre-selected based on your previous choice. Task (see the list of all Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.

Settings

Product activation settings - Select the appropriate product license from the list of available licenses. The license will be applied to products already installed on the client. The list of available licenses does not show the expired and overused licenses (in the Error or Obsolete state). You can add a license using one of the methods described in License Management. License addition/removal is restricted to the Administrator whose home group is All and who has the Write permission on licenses.


important

The Product Activation task can activate a mobile product, ESET Endpoint For Android, also using an offline license.

The activation task cannot activate ESET products of version 4 and 5 with the offline license. You need to activate the product manually or use a supported product version (we recommend using the latest version).
