Product Activation

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

To create the task, click Tasks > New > add_new_defaultClient Task or click the desired client device in Computers and select New Task.


In the Basic section, enter 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.


Product activation settings - Select a license for the client from the list. This license will be applied to products already installed on the client. If you do not see any licenses listed, go to More > License Management and add a license.


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).


Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created and a pop-up window will open:

Click Create Trigger (recommended) to specify Client Task Targets (computers or groups) and the Trigger.

If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later - Click the Client Task instance and select restart_default Run on from the drop-down menu.


You can see the progress indicator bar, status icon, and details for each created task in Tasks.
