Start a Trial – Service Providers

For information for Subscriber operators, go to Start a Trial.

The trials available for an account you manage in WatchGuard Cloud can depend on the licenses installed and any trials already completed. For more information on trial parameters, go to About Trials in WatchGuard Cloud.

Your operator role determines what actions you can take on a given page. Owners, Sales, and Helpdesk operators can start trials. As a tier-1 Service Provider, you can start a trial for any delegated tier-1 Subscriber account you have. For more information on delegated accounts, go to Inventory Management for Tier-1 Subscriber Delegated Accounts.

  1. From Account Manager, select Overview.
  2. Select Administration > Trials.
  3. Select the tab for the product you want to start a trial for.

  1. In the Account Name column, next to the account you want to start the trial for, enable the toggle to start the trial for an account.
