We just purchased a new agent. Do we need to request the license key?


If the agent is used with CA ESP Workload Automation R5.4 or R5.5 on the mainframe, you don't need a license key. Technically there is no restriction to the number of the agents connected. Please refer to your sales contract for the platforms and the number of agents for which you are entitled. This may change in a future release.

If the agent is used with CA dSeries Workload Automation on distributed server, then you will need to make sure the max number of agents allowed on the server is not exceeded. Otherwise, please call CA to request a new license key.
