Apply a DataRobot license

This page explains how to apply a DataRobot license using either the application interface or the DataRobot API. Note that this workflow is exclusive to administrators, and requires you to be logged into DataRobot with admin permissions.

Apply a license in the DataRobot application

  1. Access the DataRobot cluster in your browser.

  2. Click the profile icon in the top-right corner of the page and select License.

  3. On the License page, enter the license key in the field and click Validate.

  4. After validating, DataRobot lists the features and functionality included in the subscription (blurred in the image below).

  5. Confirm that the validated license lists the correct subscription features, then click Submit.

Apply a license via the API

Alternatively, administrators can validate a DataRobot license using DataRobot's REST API. To do so, provide your information in the snippet below and execute a REST API call.

# Set the URI of the DataRobot App node
# Ex.
# Ex.

# If you have a username and password, start here
# Set the initial username

# Set the local administrator user password

# Read the license
ldata=$(cat ./license.txt)

# Apply the license with the following commands

# Log in to the App Node
curl --silent -X POST \
  --cookie "/tmp/cookies.txt" \
  --cookie-jar "/tmp/cookies.txt" \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -d '{"username":"'"${admin_username}"'","password":"'"${admin_password}"'"}' \

# Get an API key
api_key=$(curl --silent -X POST \
  --cookie "/tmp/cookies.txt" \
  --cookie-jar "/tmp/cookies.txt" \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -d '{"name":"apiKey"}' \
  ${dr_app_node}/api/v2/account/apiKeys/ | cut -d ',' -f 5 | cut -d '"' -f 4)

# Apply the license
curl --silent -w "%{http_code}\n" -X PUT \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -H "HTTP/1.1" \
  -H "Authorization: Token ${api_key}}" \
  -d '{"licenseKey":"'"${ldata}"'"}' \

# Expected output: 200
