Cisco Sourcefire IPS License : term Subscription is still required for IPS

Hi Team,

Kindly request your advice on how the Licensing work in Sourcefire. We got FMC 2000 running in our network and purchased two 7030 and 7125 Sensors. With the same License has been received (Control+Protection) and with that PAK we have downloaded and installed the License. Now in the FMC License status is showing as : Valid License. But in Expired Column its showing as : Never (IPS Term Subscription is still required for IPS). How to obtain the Term License, will it not include in the Control+Protection license we have received along with the box. Thank you,ction we have received along with the Box. Or do we need to purchase it Seperately ?

There was an earlier discussion similar to this:

So when you purchase the TA, TAM or TAMC license, you receive Protection (IPS) feature along with the license. This License does not expire on the Firepower Manager, but you are required to renew the TA, TAM or TAMC license at the end of the existing Term license duration. This is required to pull product updates etc from Cisco.

According to the FMC guide:

A Protection license (along with a Control license) is automatically included in the purchase of any Classic managed device. This license is perpetual, but you must also purchase a TA subscription to enable system updates.
