Anyconnect License on CSR1000v Needed?

I know the procedure to setup Anyconnect on the CSR1000v but I don't know if I need to purchase an Anyconnect Plus/Apex license. The CSR is already licensed for AX so I know it supports Anyconnect.

When I look at https://supportforums.cisco.com/document/12470701/configure-sslvpn-cisco-cloud-services-router-1000vcsr1000v, there's some wording that makes me think I need a license. The below alludes to licensing being consumed based on active connections but there's no verbiage in the link above that says a specific license is required. This is the last piece of the puzzle I need to figure out. 


Rarely a few sessions which do not have active connections may appear to be consuming licenses. This typically denotes that this is a transition state and the session will get expired soon.

You would ideally need to

You would ideally need to purchase Anyconnect Plus or Apex license to have authorization to download and use Anyconnect 4.x for the number of users in your environment. AFAIK, there is no separate license key that needs to be added to the CSR for it to be able to support Anyconnect, the Security license should cover that.

Following is an excerpt from the Anyconnect FAQ:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/security/anyconnect-secure-mobility-client/200191-AnyConnect-Licensing-Frequently-Asked-Qu.html

PAK registration is specific to the ASA 5500/5500-X and does not happen for the ASAv, Firepower or Cisco ISR / ASR / CSR 1000V VPN head-ends, however the contract registration still needs to be completed in order to enable software download access and receive tech support.

I don't know the answer for this specific platform but usually you get a small number of "demo" licences (often 2), and then you need to buy a licence to expand that.

Funny, I read that same excerpt before I posted here and I guess I glazed over that fact. Thanks Rahul.
