A subscription is mandatory to get WSO2 updates. A subscription can be one of the following types:

  • Free Trial Subscription: Provides all the functionality of a paid subscription for 14 days. The validity period can be extended.

  • Paid Subscription: Can discuss your specific requirements with a WSO2 accounts manager and set up a subscription via a channel. Here are the available channels:

    • Full: This is the default channel. It gives all updates including bug fixes, security fixes, and improvements.

    • Security: Gives security bug fixes only.

    • Premium: A custom channel that is only accessible to a particular customer (i.e., company). This channel gives access to specific updates as requested by the customer.

Important: WSO2 has decided to deprecate the Security and Premium channels, therefore the Full channel will be the only channel in operation disseminating updates.
