Get Trial Status API

This API enables you to check the status of your trial license.


GET _xpack/license/trial_status


If a license is not already registered for the cluster, one is generated when the nodes start. By default, this is a 30-day trial license that gives access to all X-Pack features.

You are allowed to initiate a trial license only if your cluster has not already activated a trial license for the current major X-Pack version. For example, if you have already activated a trial for v6.0, you cannot start a new trial until v7.0. You can, however, contact to request an extended trial license.

For more information about the different types of licenses, see


You must have monitor cluster privileges to use this API. For more information, see Security Privileges.
