In a situation where a change of license occurs, this can result in the SUM installation being directed to a different URL to fetch updates. The product set available at the new URL may be different from the previous location used, to reflect new capabilities that are available in the new license. As part of switching between URLs, SUM retires its subscriptions to the products it previously used, and sets up new ones to corresponding products in the new location.
