What happens when a license expires?

Path Finder

What happens when a perpetual enterprise license expires? Does Splunk just nag you about the license or does it stop working?

A dialog comes up that forces you to enter new license information.

How does it impact the functionality of Splunk? Can you just bypass that and continue or does it keep you stuck there until you enter a new license?

You'll be forced to enter a new license. You can't do anything else.

The concept of an expiring "perpetual" license is somehow very confusing to me. How can you have something that is both perpetual, and expiring?

dwaddle,

I was wondering the same thing! The license says that it is perpetual but then it also has an expiration date. So this has me curious what will happen when the expiration date comes.

I think Splunk perpetual licenses aren't actually perpetual, but they don't expire for a really long time, until 2038, iirc.

jbsplunk,

Mine says it expires in about one month so I am trying to figure out how that is going to impact Splunk.

You'll need to use another enterprise license, or switch to the free one:
