    Can you please describe the LC version and License Information because i am unable to find those navigation options in my Admin Panel (adminui)

    I have a somehow different Navigation palette in my adminui and i believe that it is due to different version or license up gradation or modules deployed on LC Server.

    Please update me on this.

    Thanks
