Clarification on License

What happens if a extension licenses are expired? Will there be any additional duration of operation which is being performed in hivemq without any interruption in commercial/professional/enterprise edition of hivemq ? If so can you elaborate on this ?

Hi @Shaku ,

Thank you for reaching out. If no valid license file is found, the app is using the trial license, restricted to 25 connections.


  • Trial versions are only for evaluation and testing purposes. Production usage is prohibited.
  • Up to 25 connections are allowed. Please contact us if you require additional connections.
  • The evaluation version of all Enterprise Extensions is limited to operate for only 5 hours. You will need to restart HiveMQ each time you want to reset the 5 hour limit. Please contact us if you would like a longer evaluation license.
  • You can use the trial version without charge for up to 6 months after the download.

Kind regards,
Dasha from HiveMQ Support Team.
