Splunk® Enterprise

Installation Manual

Install a license

After you install Splunk Enterprise, you'll have an Enterprise Trial license for 60 days. To continue using all of the features of the product after the trial, you will need to install a Splunk Enterprise license, or change to the Free license. See Switching to Free from an Enterprise Trial license in the Admin Manual.

Add a new license

  1. Log into Splunk Web.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Licensing.
  3. Click Add license.
  4. Either click Choose file and navigate to your license file and select it, or click copy & paste the license XML directly... and paste the text of your license file into the provided field.
  5. Click Install. Splunk Enterprise installs your license.
  6. If this is the first Enterprise license that you are installing, you will be prompted to restart Splunk Enterprise services.

If you install a Dev/Test license with an Enterprise license, the Enterprise license file will be overwritten.

Use the command line to manage licenses

For examples on using the command line to manage Splunk Enterprise licensing, see Manage licenses from the CLI in the Admin Manual.
