Extend a Trial

Some of the features described in this help topic are only available to participants in the WatchGuard Beta test community. If a feature described in this topic is not available in your WatchGuard Cloud account, it is a beta-only feature.

Trial licenses are valid for 30 days, and you can extend them for another 30 days for a maximum of 60 days. You can only extend the trial once within 60 days of the start date. If you extend the trial after the first 30-day trial expires, you must upgrade the trial to include any modules you want to evaluate.

If you are a Service Provider, you can extend a trial license for your own account or a trial license for a managed account. For information on how to extend a trial as a Subscriber, go to Manage Trials - Subscribers.

After you extend a trial license, you cannot extend it again. To continue service after the trial period ends, you must purchase and activate a term or subscription license.

To extend the trial period of a product, from WatchGuard Cloud:

  1. From Account Manager, select Overview.
  2. Select Administration > Trials.
  3. Select the tab for your product.

  1. In the Account Name column, locate the account with the trial you want to extend.
  2. Click and select Extend Trial.
    The Extend Trial dialog box opens.

  1. Click Extend.
    The trial license extends for 30 days, to a maximum of 60 days.

When a trial expires and cannot be extended, all trials are unavailable for 90 days. WatchGuard Cloud saves the settings in the trial product and modules for 90 days after the trial expires. If you convert a trial license to a term license, all settings in the trial license transfer to the term license.
