Will there be any changes to licenses when we upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1.2?


Just curious, if we are upgrading distributed splunk enterprise from 7.0 to 7.1.2, we will download the current version in this link , and will use it for the upgrade process, right?
I just want to confirm if, is it even possible that when we upgrade, it will convert the splunk with license to free version of the splunk if we use the downloaded version from the link above?

Just confirming my understanding.

If you already have an enterprise license installed then when you upgrade it will keep your existing license (not revert to the free license).
If you're already on the free license then this will continue, and if you are currently on a trial license then this will also continue (it will not reset the trail).
I hope this helps.
