    Purchase a license, you get a product key or download link.

    Then you can perform an "Edition Upgrade" using the SQL Server installer => "Maintenance" => "Edition Upgrade"

    See Upgrade to a different edition of SQL Server (Setup)

    Hi @Eiswery Angamuthu (Convergys Malaysia Sdn Bhd F·k)

    In addition of the official documentation provided by Olaf, you may also contact the license team for help.

    For question regarding pricing / licensing please contact a Microsoft sales partner or licensing expert.

    Call (1-800-426-9400), Monday through Friday, 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM PST to speak directly to Microsoft licensing specialist.
