·from the Manage ControlPoint panel by choosing ControlPoint Configuration > ControlPoint Configuration Site.

·edit one of the following attributes:
§the name that displays in the SharePoint Hierarchy and selection trees, and/or
§in a multi-farm environment, the url used when switching farms from the ControlPoint application header.
·delete farms that you have decommissioned or no longer manage through ControlPoint.

If your ControlPoint license key begins with the digits 726, the product is licensed according to the number of SharePoint users in your farm and/or SPO tenancy.
If the first three digits are 723 (which is a "legacy" license issued prior to version 8.2), it is licensed according to both the number of SharePoint users and the number of farms and/or SPO tenancies being managed with ControlPoint.
