Assign Security Admin credentials

Using ESET License Administrator (ELA), a license owner can delegate the management of multiple licenses to Security Admins.

  • Licenses cannot be divided into smaller derivations, assigning a license to a Security Admin will grant them the ability to manage all units included in that license.
  • A license owner can assign multiple licenses to a single Security Admin. After creating a Security Admin account, the Security Admin can synchronize the licenses in their ELA account with ESET Remote Administrator to allow for the remote activation of ESET products.
  • ELA only allows a license owner to view one license at a time, so we recommend that license owners create a Security Admin account for themselves to make management of multiple licenses easier, and for use when activating products using ESET Remote Administrator.
To authorize a Security Admin
  1. Navigate to ESET License Administrator, type your License Key in the field and click Manage License.
