Step 2: Add Two Administrators
Set permission levels for your users. We highly recommend adding at least two administrators to avoid account lockouts.
Check out Managing Dashboard Administrators and Permissions for more about managing permissions.
Step 3: Claim Your Licenses
Once your organizational structure is set up, you can claim your licenses and apply them to devices that will be accessing your network.
Step 4: Claim Your Inventory
Use product serial numbers or order numbers to claim your devices. Activate the device on your chosen network.
