License your installationEstimated reading time: 1 minute
By default, you don’t need to license your Docker Trusted Registry. When installing DTR, it automatically starts using the same license file used on your Docker Universal Control Plane cluster.
However, there are some situations when you have to manually license your DTR installation:
- When upgrading to a new major version,
- When your current license expires.
Download your license
Go to Docker Hub to download a trial license.
License your installation
Once you’ve downloaded the license file, you can apply it to your DTR installation. Navigate to the DTR web UI, and then go to the Settings page.
Click the Apply new license button, and upload your new license file.
