GitLab Enterprise Edition includes advanced features and functionality not available in the Community Edition. An Enterprise Edition license is needed to enable these features. If you do not have a license, start a free trial.

Upgrading is as easy as installing the Enterprise Edition package. You can downgrade if desired at any time, by simply re-installing the Community Edition package. There are no database schema differences between the two editions.
