Licensing operations


Check your license

A brief license summary is provided with the pxctl status command:

pxctl status
Status: PX is operational
License: Trial license (expires in 30 days)
 [...]

Run the pxctl license list command to see more details about each licensed feature. For example,

pxctl license list
DESCRIPTION                  ENABLEMENT  ADDITIONAL INFO
Number of nodes maximum         1000

Product SKU                     Trial    expires in 30 days
NOTE: 7 days before your Portworx license is set to expire, Portworx sends an alert notifying your license is about to expire and how long you have to renew your license. The alert will keep triggering after the license has expired. For more details, see this page.
