In Release there are two main types of licenses: a 30 day Trial Edition license, and an Enterprise Edition. If you have an Enterprise Edition of Release, you can download your license file from the Deploy/Release Software Distribution site. This site requires enterprise customer login. If you have a Trial Edition of Release, you will receive a license key by email when you register to download a trial.
To see a list of all your current licenses, log in to the Deploy/Release Software Distribution site. The only supported license type is V3. For older license types that are no longer supported (V1 and V2), contact support.
You can also check the version of a license by opening
xl-release/conf/xl-release-license.lic in a text editor.
Details on installing your license is provided in the installation instructions for the Trial Edition or Enterprise Edition.
Release checks the validity of your license when you start the Release server and periodically while the server is running. The server will not start if a valid license is not installed.
To upgrade from a Release trial license to an enterprise license, contact XebiaLabs.
To renew an Enterprise Edition license or extend a trial license, contact XebiaLabs. Once you obtain a new license, you can add it to Release using the UI or the command line.
