Registration tokens for agent installation

To increase security when installing N-able N-central agents, a registration token is required. This ensures that the individual(s) installing the agent are the ones who should be performing this task, and not an outside source or hacker.

When generating registration tokens they are included in the agent install package when you download the customer-centric agent for the customer. The registration token generated is tied to the customer you select on the Download Agent/Probe screen. If you are sending the customer a URL of the agent installer, you need to send the token to the user to complete the installation screens.

Registration tokens work with Windows, Mac OS and Linux agents.

You can only use registration tokens on agents and probes from version 2020.1 and higher. It will not work when installing older agents on older operating systems.

Ensure that users have the proper permissions to generate the tokens.

  1. Click AdministrationUser Management > Roles.
