api disabled in confluence trial

I've just setup a trial of hosted confluence  and when I visit the 'Further Configuration' section, I see the below greyed out and the mouse cursor changes to an 'unclickable' cursor.


Enabling the remote APIs allows you to access Confluence remotely.
Is this a limitation of the trial? If so, is this limied also in the product itself if I host it myself (e.g starter license) ?

API usage is not restricted/limited for OnDemand.  However, please note that we do not provide support the usage of APIs.

Best Regards,

I have Development licensed Confluence v 5.3.1 hosted locally and Remote API (XML-RPC & SOAP) option can be enabled or disabled. To enable it I went to General Configuration -> Feature Settings section and clicked 'Edit' button next to the section title on the right hand side. It is clickable/selectable only in Edit mode. After done editing you have to click either Save or Cancel at the bottom of the page.
