Install an Enterprise License

MuleSoft makes available a trial version of the Enterprise Edition of Mule runtime engine (Mule) for the purpose of evaluation. Though perfect for exploring Mule and Anypoint Studio, the trial license for Enterprise limits usage of Mule and is not appropriate for production uses.

Complete the following steps to acquire and install a non-trial Enterprise license before you use Mule runtime in a production environment.

  1. Contact your MuleSoft account representative or the MuleSoft sales team to acquire an Enterprise license in the form of a license.lic file.

  2. Before installing, it’s recommended to remove the previous license from your $MULE_HOME directory:

    1. Navigate to $MULE_HOME/conf/

    2. Delete the existing muleLicenseKey.lic file.

  3. If you are installing your license on multiple platforms, back up your new license.lic file in another location before proceeding.

  4. Make sure that the Mule Server is stopped (not running) and then open the terminal or command line on your system.

  5. On Mac/Unix/Linux, from the $MULE_HOME/bin directory, run the following command:

    mule -installLicense ~/license.lic

    On Windows, first copy the license.lic file into the \bin folder, then execute the following in the command line:
    mule -installLicense license.lic

  6. In the $MULE_HOME/conf directory, Mule saves a new file called muleLicenseKey.lic. This shows that the license has been installed.

  7. Start your Mule Server again, by the usual means.

Verify or Remove Enterprise Edition License

Make sure that the Mule Server is stopped and then open the terminal or command line on your system.

To verify that Mule successfully installed your Enterprise license, run the following command:

mule -verifyLicense

To uninstall a previously installed license, run the following command:

mule -unInstallLicense

Sometimes the license installation fails and it might be necessary to manually delete $MULE_HOME/conf/muleLicenseKey.lic
