      Hi Sean,

      Thank you for your nice opinions.

      I think you have to buy a licence to get a non-trail version. I am not sure how to buy, sorry.

      Best Regards.

      Hi Vinit,

      Sorry about the late answer,

      Actually sometimes it happens,  if you don't use often, it automatically happens. this is my though so that my suggestion is create service instance from scratch.

      Best Regards
