How to update my subscription key

For Passbolt version 3.2 and higher, you can update your subscription key on the web interface directly, using the administration panel.

For Passbolt version prior to 3.2, the command line is the only way to update your subscription key, as described below.

Using administration panel

Navigate to administration > Subscription and click on the “Update key” button.

Update subscription key administration screen fig. Update subscription key administration screen

A pop-up will appear and you will be able to import your new subscription key

Choose file popup in subscription key administration screen fig. Choose file popup in subscription key administration screen

You are now able to see your subscription details:

Subscription details in subscription key administration screen fig. Subscription details in subscription key administration screen

From command line

Get ready

All the commands provided below should be done from inside your passbolt directory.

$ cd /var/www/passbolt

Notice: If you installed passbolt using the Debian package, or are using the passbolt VM (OVA) run the commands from /usr/share/php/passbolt.

Steps

Passbolt Pro currently does not provide a UI to manage subscription keys.

To update your subscription key, you need to replace your previous subscription key with the new one. In passbolt, the subscription key is stored in /var/www/passbolt/config/license

To replace the existing subscription key with the new one:

$ cp -u path_to_your_new_subscription_key config/license

Notice: If you installed passbolt using the package, or are using the passbolt VM (OVA) the subscription key file is found here: /etc/passbolt/subscription_key.txt.

To check if the operation was successful and if the new subscription key is valid:

$ bin/cake passbolt license_check

If your key is valid, this command will display the passbolt logo and the subscription key details, as in the example below:

root@c6a4f37958b4:/var/www/passbolt# ./bin/cake passbolt license_check

     ____                  __          ____
