Next are answers to some common questions.
Q: Where are the Liferay DXP Trial Plugins?
A: There is no such thing. The Liferay DXP plugins in Liferay Marketplace are
the same ones that you get to try out with your Liferay DXP trial license for your
portal. The Liferay DXP license (trial or official Liferay DXP subscriber) gives you
access to the Liferay DXP plugins. Also, there is no difference code-wise or
release-wise between a Liferay DXP trial installation and a regular Liferay DXP
non-trial installation. The only difference is the license.
Q: Why can’t I go to liferay.com/marketplace? Why can’t I purchase from
the Marketplace site?
A: DXP trial users must use the Marketplace from within the product’s
Control Panel (instructions above). You do not need to purchase any DXP
plugins because if you access Marketplace from within the Control Panel,
Marketplace sees that you have a DXP license installed and gives access to DXP
plugins. Official DXP subscription customers (i.e., non trial) can log into
liferay.com with their designated DXP subscriber login and access all DXP
plugins through the Marketplace website.
Q: Why are the plugins under the Purchased tab? If I click on the DXP
Marketplace link, it does not let me get the DXP plugins.
A: Once you’re signed into the Store, click on the Purchased tab, then
click on the EE tab.
Q: What happens when DXP trial customers become official Liferay Digital
A: They can still complete the above process, or they can also visit the
Liferay Marketplace website.
Q: Do DXP trial customers get the DXP source code?
A: No, they can only install the plugin. The DXP source code becomes
available once they are official Liferay DXP Enterprise subscribers.
Q: Can this process of installing DXP plugins be used from Liferay Portal CE
A: No, the Marketplace must detect that you are running Liferay DXP.
