There are different causes why sensors could by paused. Please check your corresponding settings:

- Paused by Dependency
- Paused by Schedule
- Paused Manually. (In this case you can just resume them again at the sensor context menu)
- Paused by license. (In this case you would need a different license in order to use more sensors. If there's a need, please reach out to us at [email protected]).

as for that issue , i think it has been paused by licence , but the fact is that the licence should end by two years.

Thanks for your answer
