Manage licenses


PX-Backup includes a 30-days trial license, by default. Contact Portworx support to purchase an enterprise license.

NOTE: PX-Backup licenses are based on node-count and node-hour, and you can check the node count when you import a license.

Perform the following steps to add your license:

  1. From the home screen, select the License icon from the left navigation panel.

    Select the license icon

  2. In License Entitlements page, select Details.

    Display license entitlements details

  3. Click Import License:

    Import license

  4. In the Add License window, choose one of the following options:

    • License Key: paste your license key
    • File: upload your license key file
    • Subscription: paste your subscription ID
    • Airgapped Metering: paste your air-gapped metering subscription ID

      Choose license input options

    For more information on air-gapped metering, refer Activate air-gapped license.

  5. Click Import License.

    License type changes to Enterprise in the PX-Backup user interface after the license is successfully imported.

    NOTE: PX-Backup provides a soft licensing period to its users for all types of licenses. Soft licensing renders a grace period of 30-days to use the product even after the actual license expiry. In addition, users can back up, restore, and add nodes to the application cluster during the soft licensing period.
