This version of CockroachDB is no longer supported. For more details, see the Release Support Policy.

Congratulations on starting your CockroachDB Enterprise Trial! With it, you'll not only get access to CockroachDB's core capabilities like high availability and SERIALIZABLE isolation, but also our Enterprise-only features like distributed BACKUP & RESTORE, geo-partitioning, and cluster visualization.

Install CockroachDB

If you haven't already, you'll need to locally install, remotely deploy, or orchestrate CockroachDB.

Enable Enterprise features

As the CockroachDB root user, open the built-in SQL shell in insecure or secure mode, as per your CockroachDB setup. In the following example, we assume that CockroachDB is running in insecure mode.

$ cockroach sql --insecure

If you've secured your deployment, you'll need to include the flags for your certificates instead of the --insecure flag.

Now, use the SET CLUSTER SETTING command to set the name of your organization and the license key:

>  SET CLUSTER SETTING cluster.organization = 'Acme Company'; SET CLUSTER SETTING enterprise.license = 'xxxxxxxxxxxx';

Then verify your organization in response to the following query:

>  SHOW CLUSTER SETTING cluster.organization;

Use Enterprise features

Your cluster now has access to all of CockroachDB's enterprise features for the length of the trial:

Getting help

If you or your team need any help during your trial, our engineers are available on CockroachDB Community Slack, our forum, or GitHub.
