How can I change through CLI the license of Heavy Forwarder from enterprise trial license to forwarder license??

This explains how to do it via UI but I don't have UI on this HF.

I have a Heavy Forwarder acting as intermediate between Universal Forwarders and Indexer but is only doing parsing, not indexing, therefore I want to change to Forwarder license.

Thank you in advance

I discovered how to do it. Follow this commands:

$ splunk list licenser-groups

   Enterprise
            is_active:0
            stack_ids:

    Forwarder
            is_active:0
            stack_ids:
                    forwarder

    Free
            is_active:0
            stack_ids:
                    free

    Trial
            is_active:1
            stack_ids:
                    download-trial

$ splunk edit licenser-groups Forwarder -is_active 1

$ splunk restart

$ splunk list licenser-groups

    Enterprise
            is_active:0
            stack_ids:

    Forwarder
            is_active:1
            stack_ids:
                    forwarder

    Free
            is_active:0
