SaaS Customers
SaaS Customers will still receive a provisioning email, keys are not available on the Support Portal

Keyless Products
Some products may be keyless. Although the product will show in the My Entitlement page, there may be a note that the product doesn't require a key.

Manual Keys
There are still some products that require manual key generation from our licensing team. You will still see the product line item in the My Entitlement page, but the keys will be manually delivered via email and license case. We will note the case number that the key was delivered in My Entitlement page.
