    The Clients page appears, displaying the client table.

  2. In the client table, in the rows corresponding to the LCE clients that you want to authorize, select the check boxes.

    Tip: You can use filters or sort by the Authorized column to quickly find LCE clients that need to be authorized.

  3. Above the client table, in the upper-left corner, click the Actions button, and then click Authorize.

    The Authorize dialog box appears.

  4. Review the list of LCE clients that will be authorized, and then click the Authorize button.

    The LCE clients are authorized and will immediately send a heartbeat.
