    Hi Qe Tools,

    Thanks for posting your question. The grace period is 5 days. After that period, it will be automatically restarted and forced to insert a new license. However, if you restart the instance within those 5 days after the license has expired, you will also be forced to update your environment with the new license.

    Hope it solves your question.
