» Consul Enterprise

These features are part of Consul Enterprise.
Licensing capabilities were added to Consul Enterprise v1.1.0. The license is set once for a datacenter and will automatically propagate to all nodes within the datacenter over a period of time scaled between 1 and 20 minutes depending on the number of nodes in the datacenter. The license can be set via the API or the CLI. When Consul is first started, a 30 minute temporary license is available to allow for time to license the datacenter. The license should be set within ten minutes of starting the first Consul process to allow time for the license to propagate.
