Magnolia 5.7 reached extended end of life on May 31, 2022. Support for this branch is limited, see End-of-life policy. Please note that to cover the extra maintenance effort, this EEoL period is a paid extension in the life of the branch. Customers who opt for the extended maintenance will need a new license key to run future versions of Magnolia 5.7. If you have any questions or to subscribe to the extended maintenance, please get in touch with your local contact at Magnolia.

The Enterprise Edition requires a license to run. You will receive a license key from Magnolia International with your purchase. Enter the key into the system when installing Magnolia. You can also update the key in configuration later.

Updating a license key

  1. Open the About Magnolia app
  2. Click Enter license info.
  3. Enter the registered email address in the License owner field. Email is case sensitive. If you registered as then will not work.
  4. Enter the license key in the License data field. Make sure the key is on one line. Remove line breaks before you paste the key.

There is no need to restart Magnolia for the new license to take effect.

Enter the license key manually into all your Magnolia instances, including public instances. The key cannot be activated from author to public.

The license owner's email address is encoded into the registration key. If you change your email address and get a new key, you need to change the License owner field as well.

If the About app is not installed or not working you can update your license in the Configuration app. Find the node /modules/enterprise/license and update the key property.
