Is there a way to accept the open source version license agreement via Kickstart?



  • Is there a way to accept the opensource (free version) license using Kickstart? I found how you can set your license id using kickstart but cannot find how to set/accept the open source license.

    {
    "licenseId": "eb7244dc-5d8e-40cd-a005-70b116fbda31"
    }

    works to set a purchased license. Is there a specific tag to indicate the open source license is accepted?

    Maybe like
    {
    "licenseId": "99999999-8888-7777-6666-555555555555"
    }

    or something similar "Open-Source-License-Accept"



  • I don't believe you have to set a license id. If you are using the community edition (which, in the interests of transparency is not open source; it's free as in beer, not free as in speech) you shouldn't need to set the license key at all.

    Are you seeing an error or something else indicating you need to set a license key?



  • Sorry. Community Edition.

    Not seeing an error at this time. Just getting spun up on Kickstart and how to implement. We want to template out a lot of stuff and wanted to include the "licenseid" as part of the template as we expect to support licensed versions as part of our initiative.

    Also, I know that you must accept the License Agreement as part of initial login when you set up the Community Edition (first admin account). The initial screens require it before proceeding. What happens to that acceptance requirement when you created the initial admin account via Kickstart?



  • Sorry. Community Edition.

    No worries, there's some confusion about open sourceness and I just want to be super transparent (more here). Sorry if I came across as prickly.

    I just spun up an instance via kickstart and was not prompted to accept the license. I'm not sure if that's a bug; I asked the team.

    I think kickstart is really aimed at setting up dev or CI environments because it doesn't handle changes to config over time, it's much more for initial setup. (See this bug for more.)

    You may be interested in the terraform support as well.



  • Thanks for the info. I was not sure if it was going to prompt for a license or impact my Kickstart in any way. I was concerned is all - no bug noted.

    I had a malformed kickstart.json that was impacting my build. I think I have the issue resolved now.

    BTW I didn't take your response as prickly. I was attempting to correct myself.



  • Awesome, glad to hear it! Thanks for letting me know.
