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
RESTORE, geo-partitioning, and cluster visualization.
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

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

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:
RESTORE, which leverage your entirely cluster to create and consume consistent backups.
- Geo-partitioning to control the physical location of your data with row-level granularity.
- Node Maps, which provides enhanced visuals of your cluster's nodes.
- Use role-based access management (RBAC) for simplified user management.
