Upgrading & Downgrading

Pro edition is in Beta and is provided for free while in Beta.

Upgrading to Pro

Type the following command in your terminal to upgrade from community edition to Pro:

kubeshark pro

A browser window will open and you will be asked to sign up or in to the Kubeshark Cloud Console.

Kubeshark Console Auth Screen

The authentication process will attempt to automatically configure Kubeshark to use the Pro edition.

If something goes wrong, you will be asked to manually enter a license key when prompted in the CLI.


Using the Pro edition, requires having a valid license key in the Kubeshark configuration file, that usually resides at ~/.kubeshark/config.yaml.

To downgrade, simply erase the license key and Kubeshark will use the community version.

No need to save the license key. You can always upgrade, by running the kubeshark pro command.
