Each license that you create in QLM can have two expiry dates associated with it: a license expiry date and a maintenance plan expiry date.
The license expiry date specifies when the license expires. Once a license expires, a customer is typically not able to continue running your application.
The maintenance plan expiry date specifies when the maintenance plan expires. A maintenance plan is typically associated with permanent licenses to determine if a user is entitled to upgrade to a newer version of your application. Once a maintenance plan expires, a customer can continue running your application but is not able to upgrade to a version of your application that was released after the expiry date of the maintenance plan. For more details about the maintenance plan feature., please read QLM Maintenance Plan.
