Remove a License

If your license information has changed, you may need to remove an existing license from DKP to add a new one. Only DKP administrators have the ability to remove licenses.

Original license information can still be obtained from D2iQ or the AWS License Manager console even after removing from DKP.

In the DKP UI, do the following:

  1. Select Global in the workspace header drop-down.

  2. In the sidebar menu, select Administration > Licensing.

  3. Your existing licenses will be listed. Click Remove License on the license you would like to remove, and follow the prompts.

Manually Remove a License using kubectl

To remove a license from DKP using kubectl, you have to delete the Secret and License objects. In this example, the secret is named “my-license-secret”.

  1. Validate that the secret exists in the kommander namespace:

    kubectl describe secret -n kommander my-license-secret
    CODE

    Expected output:

    Name:         my-license-secret
    Namespace:    kommander
    Labels:       kommanderType=license
    Annotations:  <none>
    
    Type:         Opaque
    
    Data
    ====
    jwt:  455 bytes
    CODE
  2. Delete the secret from the kommander namespace:

    kubectl delete secret -n kommander my-license-secret
    CODE

    Expected output:

    secret "my-license-secret" deleted
    CODE
  3. We do the same with the License object. Validate that it exists in the kommander namespace:

    kubectl describe license -n kommander my-license
    CODE

    Expected output:

    Name:         my-license
    Namespace:    kommander
    Labels:       <none>
    Annotations:  kubectl.kubernetes.io/last-applied-configuration:

  4. Delete the license from the kommander namespace:

    kubectl delete license -n kommander my-license
    CODE

    Expected output:

    license.kommander.mesosphere.io "my-license" deleted
    CODE

You have now successfully removed a license.
