Issue/Introduction

Please clarify what it does when you remove a License File from Policy Manager for v10. The message states "This will irrevocably destroy the existing gateway license and cannot be undone"

Environment

API Gateway: 9.3+, 10

Resolution

When the license is removed, we delete the data about the license from the Gateway's database, preventing you from accessing the GW via the Policy Manager. Once we delete that entry, it cannot be undone. If you install the license file again, a new entry will be created so you can access the GW.
