ClusterControl introduces a new license format on v1.7.1 (the new license key format contains only a long-encrypted string). If you are having the older format, contact the account manager, or email our sales department at [email protected] to get a new license.
For users with a valid subscription (Advanced and Enterprise), enter your license key here to unlock additional features based on the subscription. The license string contains information about the license type, company/affiliation, email, expiration date, and the total number of licensed nodes.
The following example is the license information that one would get from us:
Email: [email protected] Company: Severalnines AB Expiration Date: 2019-04-23 Licensed Nodes: 1 License Key: ewogICAgImNvbXBhbnkiOiAiU2V2ZXJhbG5pbmPkIEFCIiwKICAgICJlbWFpbF9hZGRyZXNzIjog InRlc3RAc2VRZXJhbG5pbmVzLmNvbSIsCiAgICAiZXhwaXJhdGlvbl9kYXRlIjogIjIwMTktMDQt MjNUMDA6MDA6MDAuMDAxWiIsCiAgICAibGljZW5zZWRfbm9kZXMiOiAtMSwKICAgICJ0eXBlIjog IkVudGVycHJpc2UiCn0Ke3M5cy1zaWduYXR1cmUtc2VwYXJhdG9yfQp0RUew5OZKV8SqmmwiQEzT P+qTNnmCphirIVm7MriA/aCdlJYQcr1NJr4nvTNcSmgu4uFVf3Ufv4olHr4wrBq0/Js9Rm8bJWZo BO8svHzQhCmIVEWcTYub362krjRyREnOGXaqWwUnvkZ0uUCT+WDaM1P9qn/HawoNd0e8E0+7WiZK CpwjH+ESqSEppeu/Ewzf3p0C0e8WZbwHtZ9UmX2qJNQq9NDlByrO8FtbVjOOL4zTbc8jV0W2DWzY 1swzOgeyk+7N2eGVRWfdUSzudQSXkT3LA4cdV2HAsU5QLnmKxSCgg+jq+RQJiPwdPXEr3gzjzJzV +qhmOZ5tTN+WABPy9l3kpztlCbkfzO84/4lM7Z3c4rQ8snMTu6RvD2M+oh/4lhvR8M9RrQQcl8JF RX2Ak1ZAKxAXkJ97Z5U7nIzuyUGuMTCXdKGEtQkBXzpIcYFvXDeWu0MUks+EULpqG+OFnl+rSZa0 nNTSW3mR/f9B+4e2mK4y2OpJhh4rWPXR1DLpLVLk/2p0o64aEizA+IPe0TP+ox7bFzEfAXirVWfC /Ol7m1k6arRbl8PSV1DRRcefM+UsABa6jypoiit+JXNPOajdjY1WBgEekCn/jeXBBoPM2k26274u br0BuHULLkxGSpC8I2/nW6s84E653FO1Kpbvyx+2SKJxwUxLiuEZ2g==
It is very important to only paste the license key string, which is the string that starts after the “License Key: ” part (as in the example,
ewogI...until the end of the string,
...Z2g== with no extra/trailing character) into the license text field. The new license key should be loaded into the ClusterControl runtime immediately after pressing Update License and no service restart is necessary.
When the license expires, ClusterControl defaults back to the Community Edition. For features comparison, please refer to the ClusterControl product page.
If you would like to force the existing Enterprise edition to the Community edition (commonly to test out and compare different editions during trial), you can truncate the license table on the ClusterControl host manually. On the ClusterControl server, run:
$ mysql -uroot -p cmon -e "TRUNCATE TABLE cmon.license" $ systemctl restart cmon
Once a trial license is truncated and cmon is restarted, there is no way you can re-activate the same trial license anymore.
