How do I get a license for my local instance of Jira?

I used the Jira SDK to install a local instance of Jira, per the tutorial here Now that I have my localhost:2990 instance running with just the username:password as admin:admin, again per the tutorial, I'm getting notifications that my JIRA Core will expire in four days, and that I haven't downloaded Jira Software or Jira Service desk, but those will also expire in four days. Obviously there isn't a real account registered to this local instance, I've just been following the tutorial exactly, so what can I do to make sure I can continue testing on this?

When you restart you development instace the license will automaticly renew. 

The development instances are time-bombed at 3-4 days depending on version.  As Pedro says, just stop it and start it again.

Remember also that a dev install is not a "proper" JIRA server - it's modified to help support your development work.  It's not really suitable for doing support or end-user testing work.

Thanks Pedro, Nic. I'm just planning on using it to test webhooks with some sample projects.
