How to determine plugin is in Free Trial through PluginLicenseManager

I have a plugin with licensing, which works fine with the timebomb licences. But when I do a fresh install on my developer instance, I get the "Free Trial" licence - by my thinking, in free trial everything should work just like in the paid version.

But here comes my problem, how do I actually determine that the plugin is in the free trial? I use this function to determine if the plugin is licensed:

private Boolean isLicenceOK() {
if (pluginLicenseManager.getLicense().isDefined()) {
PluginLicense pluginLicense = pluginLicenseManager.getLicense().get();
return !pluginLicense.getError().isDefined();
} else {
return false;

Which works fine when I have/dont have a license. But when the plugin is in the free trial, it just says there is no license.

So is there a way to find out if the plugin is currently in the free trial?

Hi Ivana,

You should be able to see this information in the Manage Add-Ons page:

See the License Details section:

License details:

Evaluation, Unlimited-user commercial license, Standard, expires 02/Feb/18

You can also tell from the description paragraph this is a trial:

Your trial is expiring on 02/Feb/18.  Buy a license for this add-on.
