How to add license key for Confluence permanently

We have containerize the Confluence and using the Trial version, want to permanently using the License key to /home/confluence,config.xml, unable to find for update, getitng jwt.private.key and jwt.public.key
<property name="access.mode">READ_WRITE</property>
<property name="jwt.private.key"> 

 <property name="jwt.public.key">
<property name="synchrony.encryption.disabled">true</property>
<property name="synchrony.proxy.enabled">true</property>

Could you please suggest what needs to be done.

Also, I am using crowd for authentication however after updating the file we are not able to authenticate confluence.

In the confluence.cfg.xml.  The license will be in the <property name="atlassian.license.message"> tag in plain text you just need to update it here.  Confluence should be shut down prior to making the change.  Once you make the change then start up confluence and the license will apply.

As far as the crowd issue you should make sure it is still associated in confluence as a directory.  You should still be able to login to confluence using the internal directory.

What is the significance of jwt.private.key & jwt.public.key ?

Can the same keys be used for different environments(Prod and Non-prd)?
