Harness is available in four versions, to meet different users' needs:
- Harness Professional – This is our enterprise version, licensed by annual subscription based on your usage needs. It supports flexible scaling, custom integrations, and extended data analysis. It includes 24/7 support.
- Harness Essentials – Designed for growing teams, this version provides most Harness Professional features at lower per-usage pricing. It limits or excludes some integrations and enterprise security features, and limits support to standard business hours.
- Harness Community – This version is free to use, forever. It limits daily deployments, and limits certain other usage parameters and integration options.
- Harness Trial – This is a free 15-day trial of almost all Harness Professional features (excluding unlimited Services, license-based Service Instances, and the on-premises setup option).
Migrating Between Editions
If you choose to move from the full-featured Harness Trial to the free Community Edition, you'll need to remove or adjust any premium features you've configured. The Harness Manager UI will prompt you to make any required changes. For details on this process, see Migrating to Harness Community.
Migrating to or from the Harness Essentials Edition is handled by Harness. For these migrations, please follow links in the Harness application to contact Harness.
