How to reset license after it has expired
My license has expired and Lenses keeps restarting. How do i reset license to use a new one?
Lenses allows 1 month to be run with an expired license, after that it will stop working and depending on the deployment method enter a restart loop. During this restart loop it’s impossible to update the license using the UI or the REST endpoint. In this edge-case, the only solution is to remove the existing license from Lenses db. Here is how to do it for both H2 (default) and PostgreSQL.
# H2 example where db file `lensesdb.mv.db` can be found under '/data/lenses/' folder # The following command should be run from within $LENSES_PATH/lib folder, e.g. /opt/lenses/lib $ java -cp h2-*.jar org.h2.tools.Shell \ -url 'jdbc:h2:file:/data/lenses/lensesdb' \ -sql "DELETE FROM lenses_settings WHERE KEY='license';" # PostgreSQL example with psql CLI tool that comes with PostgreSQL installation psql -U postgres -h localhost lenses > DELETE FROM lenses_settings WHERE key='license';
