Hi Sudhakaran,


If you are running Bitbucket Server 5.6.0, you may be experiencing the BSERV-10428 bug.


As a workaround, try to update the license by using the REST end point:

curl -u <username>:<password> -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"license":"<license key>"}' <Bitbucket base url>/<context path>/rest/api/1.0/admin/license


If you need to extend the evaluation license, have a look at this page for the detailed steps:
