License file management

To download your Grafana Enterprise license log in to your Grafana Cloud Account and go to your Org Profile. In the side menu there is a section for Grafana Enterprise licenses.

Place the license.jwt file in Grafana’s data folder. This is usually located at /var/lib/grafana on Linux systems.

You can also configure a custom location for the license file via the ini setting:

license_path = /company/secrets/license.jwt
