Central Delayed Activation

    Dear All,

    I would need some more detailed information regarding delayed activation of Central device subscriptions. The datasheet mentions: "Purchase subscriptions now and activate them up to 90 days later to align with network deployments, expansions, or other upcoming IT initiatives." Does this require some special ordering process? Or we simply order the device subscription as usual and after e-delivery we have 90 days to add the subscription on Greenlake portal when we need it,  without loosing any period from the ordered subscription term. 

    How granularly we can use this delayed activation? In case we purchased 100 AP device subscription am I able to activate it in GreenLake in more steps with less devices (30, 20, 50) or only in one shot?

    Thank you!

    Delayed activation is available for certain consumption types and through specific partners and has to be requested during ordering. Please work with your local Aruba partner, or if you are a partner (think Arrow is distributor is some countries), your Aruba Channel Sales contact.

    As far as I understand, delayed activation involves the full subscription block in one shot.
