Trial license

A trial can be Team Edition or Enterprise Edition. By default, your trial is Enterprise Edition, which allows one shared space. If you want to start a trial with Team Edition, specify the Team trial type during the installation process. For details, refer to the ALM Octane Installation Guide.

When starting a trial, keep the following in mind:

  • If you create a shared space in an Enterprise Edition trial and then install a license for Pro Edition, the sharing capabilities will not be supported in future releases.

  • If you start an Enterprise Edition trial, you may not install a license for Team Edition later. This flow is not supported.
