Starting with Resilio Connect v.2.9.1, a new licensing scheme can be used, not compulsory though. If customers have different Agent Packages/Types with different features in their License key, they need to be assigned to Agents manually. If customers have only purchased one Agent Type, no manual assignment needs to be done, since this one Agent Type will become the default type and automatically be assigned to any new Agent that gets added (see below).
This new License Type can only be applied to Management Console version 2.9.1 and newer. After a License has been applied, the Administrator needs to manage the license package and assign them to the Agents, as needed. Only SuperAdmin can upload a new license, and any user with full access to agents can change license packages for agents.

The License Package with the most Seats, is considered to be the Default Type and is automatically assigned to all Agents, prioritized by alphabet. If the package runs out of seats, other agents remain "unlicensed" and the Administrator needs to assign a new license package manually.
The Administrator can change the default package if necessary.
For newly connected Agents, the license package shall be assigned when giving approval.
If the Agent connects with agent config, the Default license package is applied. Same as above, if the default package does not have enough seats, the agents will connect as 'unlicensed' and the admin needs to manually assign some license.
Since WAN optimization speeds are now defined by the package, the WAN toggle is removed from Console's UI with a new license applied.
At any time admin can change the assigned package for an agent.
This can be done from the AGENTS tab, or through Management Console settings -> Licensing.
Management Consoles prior to 2.9.1 cannot apply the new license key and will continue to use their legacy License. Management Console's 2.9.1 and above, can continue to use their legacy license. The only new 2.9 Features that require the new License Key Type are the new Zero Gravity Transport Protocol and the use of Object Storage.
Agents v 2.8.x can have a new license package assigned, but they won't be able to use any of the new features.
