Test the license checking during development

During the development of your Power-Up you may wish to check the license status is working as it should be.

You have a two options available to you depending on where you are in the development process:

  • Developer licenses managed via Optro Vendor

  • Manual override

Developer licenses

Within Optro Vendor you can navigate to the Power-Up that you would like to license. On the Power-Up page you will find the Development tab which contains a section called License overrides. Here you are able to license up to 10 specific boards for development purposes.

To add a license you will first need to find the target ID for the license. Follow the relevant instructions below:

Finding the ID of a board
  1. Navigate to the board that you would like to license

  2. Go to the URL and append .json to the end (e.g.

  3. The very first item on the page will be "id": "<your-board-id>"

Finding the ID of a user
  1. Find the Trello username of the user. This can be done by visiting the profile page:

  2. Then visit<username>

  3. The first item on the page will be "id": "<member-id>"

Finding the ID of an organisation
  1. Navigate to any board within the organisation that you would like to license.

  2. Go to the URL and append .json to the end (e.g.

  3. Use ctrl+f to search for idOrganization

  4. The first result will be "idOrganization": "<your-organisation-id>"

Once you have your target ID you can also enter a friendly reference name for your license to help you remember what it relates to.

Finally, click the green tick as shown above to create your developer license.

Once created, you can select the tier of license from the dropdown menu that you would like for the override to apply. You can also toggle the override by using the the active switch, this is useful for disabling overrides that you are not currently using but do not want to have to refetch the ID to use later. You can also toggle quickly between Free and Pro tiers by enabling and disabling the override.

To remove a developer license that you no longer want you can simply click on the bin icon in the far right of the row.

Manual override

You can manually override the license status to switch between a licensed and unlicensed state to ensure the features (or Power-Up) operate correctly depending on your configuration. This can be done using the overrideLicense property for the LicenseProvider component.

The overrideLicense property accepts the following values

  • 'free' Any pro license returned from the API will be overridden.

  • 'pro' The LicenseProvider component will behave as if there is currently an active pro license regardless of the API's response.

  • undefined when no value is defined the override will not be active

Congratulations, you have built your very own Power-Up, customized it’s features and added monetization! Just before you begin the celebrations, there’s one final step to complete and that’s creating your Power-Up listing on Optro.
