More information from help.hybris

When you download & Install the SAP Hybris Commerce Suite, By default it ships with the 30 days initial demo license.
 There are three types of licenses: an initialtemporary license (valid for 90 days), an extension license (valid for a further 90 days), and a permanent commercial license. So if your demo license has expired still you have a chance to extend it by installing the temporary license. But once that also expires you have to re-initialize your system. So better for you to get the developer license to continue your work without re-initialize.

To get the developer license

You need to contact your company or SAP partner to allow you to download the license.
