Deployment job update licenses

Just curious, I noticed that at 01:17 my panorama connects to updates.paloaltonetworks.com then completes a "Deployment job update licenses" job for each of my firewalls.  This isn't anything to do with the sceduled dynamic updates as the timings are wrong and we don't do it like that anyway.

 

I was just wondering if anyone knows what this job is for and what happens if the job fails?

I found:

For firewalls that have direct internet access, Panorama automatically performs a daily check-in with the licensing server, retrieves license updates and renewals, and pushes them to the firewalls. The check-in is hard-coded to occur between 1 and 2 A.M.; you cannot change this schedule.

I also wonder why it's considered a HIGH severity notification?

Yeah sorry I forgot I posted it here or I would have updated it.  I raised it with TAC and they gave that explanation too.

 

Thanks
