Renew the Container Cloud and MKE licenses

When your Mirantis Container Cloud expires, contact you account manager to request a new license by submitting a ticket through the Mirantis CloudCare Portal. If your trial license has expired, contact Mirantis support for further information. Once you obtain a new mirantis.lic file, update Container Cloud along with MKE clusters using the instructions below.


Once your Container Cloud license expires, all API operations with new and existing clusters are blocked until license renewal. Existing workloads are not affected.

Additionally, since Cluster releases 17.0.0, 16.0.0, and 14.1.0, you cannot perform the following operations on your cluster with an expired license:

  • Create new clusters and machines

  • Automatically upgrade the management cluster

  • Update managed clusters

To update the Container Cloud and MKE licenses:

  1. Log in to the Container Cloud web UI with the m:kaas@global-admin role.

  2. Navigate to Admin > License.

  3. Click Update License and upload your new license.

  4. Click Update.


Machines are not cordoned and drained, user workloads are not interrupted, and the MKE license is updated automatically for all clusters starting from Cluster releases 7.6.0, 8.6.0, and 11.0.0.
