I know with BIG-IQ you can upgrade software on a BIG-IP but a big piece to the upgrade path is ensuring that the Service Check Date is later than the release date of the software you want to upgrade to. Is there a way on BIG-IQ to reactivate a license on a BIG-IP?
This is for BIG-IQ managing on-premises physical BIG-IPs in an Active/Standby pair configuration.

Yes you can, look this link : https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K77706009#refresh
Note: Refreshing the BIG-IP license from the BIG-IQ system is also referred to as reactivating a BIG-IP license
After reactivating the base registration key from the License server, you need to pass the updated license information to the BIG-IP system to ensure it contains a recent service check date.
Unfortunately this says it only applies to "remote BIG-IP VE device licenses". I was looking into the on-premises BIG-IPs that we have and would like to streamline the process via BIG-IQ for those upgrades.
