Upgrading from Hasura CE to Hasura Enterprise


Starting from Hasura GraphQL Engine version v2.12.0, we have included both open-source and commercial components in the hasura/graphql-engine container image. The open-source portions are licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0. The proprietary components include features for Hasura Enterprise and they can be enabled through a free trial or with a license key provided by the Hasura team.


If you would like to use an image with only the open source components, please use Docker images on this page that contain -ce. (example: hasura/graphql-engine:<VERSION>-ce)

Hasura Enterprise trial

If you're running Hasura version v2.23.0 or greater, you can instantly try Hasura Enterprise on your existing Hasura setup by signing up for a free 30-day Hasura Enterprise trial.

Hasura Enterprise Edition license key

If you have been provided a license key by the Hasura team, set it as the value for the HASURA_GRAPHQL_EE_LICENSE_KEY environment variable in your Hasura container.

E.g. if the license key sent by the Hasura team is ABC1234, you will set HASURA_GRAPHQL_EE_LICENSE_KEY=”ABC1234”.

Restart Hasura to start using the enterprise features.
