Sitecore Azure PaaS: Updating Your License File For All Deployed App Service Instances



If you are provisioning a new set of Sitecore environments on your own, or if the Sitecore Managed Cloud Hosting Team provisions your environments for you, you will most likely be using a temporary license file that is valid for 1 month while you are waiting for your permanent license file .

When the temporary license expires, your Sitecore instances will stop working. Therefore, it is important that you upload a valid permanent license.xml file as soon as it is available.

File Locations

In an XP Scaled environment, there are many different App Services and locations where the license.xml file will need to be updated.

I created a list of the App Service roles and the license file locations for your reference:

App Service Role License File Location
xc-search  \App_data & \App_data\jobs\continuous\IndexWorker\App_data
ma-ops  \App_data & \App_data\jobs\continuous\AutomationEngine\App_Data
cd  \App_data
cm  \App_data
ma-rep  \App_data
prc  \App_data
rep  \App_data
xc-collect  \App_data
xc-refdata  \App_data

Updating the License File

The easiest way to update the file is to use the Debug console in the Kudu "Advanced Tools" in your App Service Instance, or an FTPS client to connect directly to the App's filesystem.
