instana-console (docker) delete licenses

Currently instana console allows download, import and verify. We have had issues where a license needed to be deleted from instana, and we achieved this by manually deleting this from the cockroach DB.
It would be great if a new flag was added to instana console license management to also be able to delete licences.

    Thanks for bringing this idea to Instana Self-Hosted. From what I see, in the linked tickets there was a problem (and a workaround) 1 year ago and this year - was it the same problem? The described workaround to reset the license was:

    docker exec -ti instana-cockroachdb /opt/instana/cockroachdb/bin/cockroach --insecure --execute sql "DELETE from tenantdb.onprem_licenses;"

    I am not sure if I understood the original issue after the initially extending the licenses; we suggest fixing those and keep the above workaround for the time being.
