Install self hosted premium license

A premium license gives you access to all premium features in the self-hosted version.

This guide covers how to get and register a license on your self-hosted Baserow server to activate the Premium subscription. To activate Enterprise license, refer to this support article.

Get your Instance ID

This article covers how to find your Self-hosted Instance ID required to upgrade users to the premium plan if you have installed Baserow on your own server.

To create the license, we need your self-hosted instance ID to upgrade users to another plan. The instance ID is the unique identifier of your Baserow copy. The license will be connected to it.

Only an Instance Admin can access the Admin panel to retrieve the instance ID required to perform billing actions. Users without staff access do not have access to the entire instance.

Find your Baserow instance ID by logging into your Baserow self-hosted instance as an Instance Admin under: Admin → Licenses → copy the instance ID.

It is possible to change the instance ID for an ongoing subscription in case you want to use the license for a different instance later on.

How to get your licence key

After purchasing a self-hosted subscription, you will be able to download a licence key that will allow you to register your Baserow self-hosted instance. It’s not possible to use the same key on two different installations.

  1. A license can only be obtained on Log into
  2. Navigate to: Subscriptions → License subscriptions → More details → Reveal license key

If you don’t have a key yet, purchase a subscription and view pricing.

After registering your license, you can assign users to the seats by selecting which registered users will be able to use paid features. These users can then use paid features across all workspaces, while users that are not assigned to the license won’t be able to do so. You can mix free and paid users in one Baserow instance and it doesn’t matter in which workspaces the users will work.

After your license has expired, you and any assigned users will no longer be able to use the extra functionality granted by the license.
