  1. Sophos should email the e-license to the end user email address by default but you can specify that it goes to you in your email (above). It will have the license scheduled attached and that contains the license number. EXAMPLE:


  1. From the Partner Portal (credentials in the master doc), click “Manage Sophos Central”
  1. Start New Trial (left nav, trial licenses), this adds them as a customer
  2. Now the customer should show under the Sophos Central Customers section
  1. Select that Customer and then Apply License Key

  1. Confirm the license is applied by checking for the green check marks

  1. Policies > Client Base Policies > CLIENT > Software > Your Software
  1. Find the newly created custom software that you just created and named and “Add App”. You should see it say Pending Addition
  1. Policies > Client Base Policies > CLIENT > Deploy Changes >

  2. From here you can deploy now or wait 30 mins for it to go by itself
  1. Check the Sophos dashboard to confirm devices are showing up. If you start seeing them, you did it correctly.

NOTE: There is a section where you can restrict the policy, restrict it to the client. No one else needs Methods Sophos installer.
