License validation

XL Release checks the validity of your license when you start the XL Release server and at certain times while the server is running.

The server will not start if a valid license is not installed.

License extension and renewal

To renew an Enterprise Edition license or extend a Trial Edition license, contact XebiaLabs.

To renew your license using a license file that you download from the XebiaLabs Software Distribution site, replace the license file in the XL_RELEASE_SERVER_HOME/conf directory with the new file.

To renew your license using a license key, go to Help > About in XL Release, click Renew license, and enter the new license key.
