Can I use Icontrol or anything to activate the license?

Hi, Is there a way to activate the license through any APIs?

 

  • Yes. Have a look at:

     

    https://devcentral.f5.com/wiki/iControl.Management__LicenseAdministration.ashx

     

    There is also an API for the license server at F5. It uses the old pycontrol2 library, but could be adapted to use BigSuds. Have a look at:

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks a lot Rich ! I thought of using this. https://clouddocs.f5.com/api/icontrol-soap/pyControl-v2-License-BIGIP.html and this one works pretty well ! What do you think which one is the suggested way ? Do they have any sample code for first method ?
