Error adding license into quantrocket


i am trying to add my license with the command:

quantrocket license set ‘#######’
i get the error:
usage: quantrocket license [-h] {get} …
quantrocket license: error: argument subcommand: invalid choice: ‘set’ (choose from ‘get’)

there is no set command
quantrocket license -h show there is only a get command.
i have quantrocket release 1.5.1

any help would be appreciated


One way or another you’re not really on 1.5.1 when running that command, as set was added a couple versions ago. Are you running this command from inside Jupyter? Did you run docker ps to verify the version numbers? Try going through the update process again.


thanks for the reply

i did not run command from inside jupyter.
i ran it from the powershell command line
is that correct?.

re running the command

PS C:\Users\Darryl\quantrocket> docker-compose -p quantrocket up -d
quantrocket_jupyter_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_zipline_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_ibg1_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_db_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_codeload_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_moonshot_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_launchpad_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_flightlog_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_license-service_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_countdown_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_houston_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_account_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_master_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_fundamental_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_blotter_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_history_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_satellite_1 is up-to-date
quantrocket_logspout_1 is up-to-date

shows all containers are upto date
displaying the version with docker ps shows the license-service is 1.5.0

and i license server still does not have a set argument.
the old version of quantrocket i updated from, the license key was defined as an environment variable.
which i have removed,

any ideas


Oh, don’t use powershell to run quantrocket commands anymore (still use it to run docker commands). Run the quantrocket commands from the terminal inside JupyterLab. It would be a good idea to review the installation tutorial.


thanks brian
that has fixed my problem
