About this task

    • From the Health status card on the dashboard, select the License status icon or the License link. This link appears only if there is an issue with the license.

    • Select MAINTENANCE > System > License.

  2. View the read-only details for the current license:

    • StorageGRID system ID, which is the unique identification number for this StorageGRID installation

    • License serial number

    • License type, either Perpetual or Subscription

    • Licensed storage capacity of the grid

    • Supported storage capacity

    • License end date. N/A appears for a perpetual license.

    • Support service contract end date

      This date is read from the current license file and might be out of date if you extended or renewed the support service contract after obtaining the license file. To update this value, see Update StorageGRID license information. You can also view the actual contract end date using Active IQ.
