How to verify and update your LemonEdge license

5-min setup time


The first step after you have downloaded LemonEdge or if your license has expired is to update your license in-app and verify it. 

Prior to this, you will be receiving invalid license errors as shown below - this error will prompt you at every login:


There are several license types:

  • Trial
    A time limited trial license for development and testing. Not valid for production. Only provides access to the LemonEdge client applications requiring a direct SQL Server connection and does not provide access to the services, or tools required for production use such as the web/task services.
  • Developer
    A full license for internal development and testing. This license is not valid for production use either.
    Provides access to the full suite of LemonEdge client, services and tools.
  • Partner
    A full license for internal development, testing, and client implementations. This license is not valid for production use either. Provides access to the full suite of LemonEdge client, services and tools.
  • Production
    Valid licenses for production use come in 3 tiers with various different capabilities. They are all valid for production use, see our pricing guide for a detailed explanation:
    • Basic
    • Professional
    • Enterprise
