Get Trial Status APIedit

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


GET _xpack/license/trial_status


If you want to try the features that are included in a platinum license, you can start a 30-day trial.

You are allowed to initiate a trial license only if your cluster has not already activated a trial license for the current major product 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.
