Without license coverage, you are not able to manage the APs.

You can only manage up-to-and-including the number of APs that you have actively licensed.

The APs, however, stay fully functional in such a scenario so there isn't a risk of loss of service to clients.

Thanks Nick!

But if I need to make changes to the settings? Creations of new WLANs, roamming settings or authentication via social networks?

I'll have to do this via CLI?

All the features like roamming or authentication via social networks will work?

If you elect to not renew your license(s), any changes you wish to make have to be made via the CLI.
Roaming remains fully functional. (HiveManager is not a controller.)

Social login will, I believe, cease to work as it requires Aerohive's cloud services to function.

If you choose to not to renew your HiveManager licenses, HiveManager access will expire and therefore you will not be able to push new configuration or run reports. Aerohive support will also require a valid support license. 

Your network will still continue to work and there will be no loss of control functionality to the wire/wireless. (RRM, WIPS, firewall rules etc.)

You can use the the Cli command hiveui enable on version 5 of firmware on ap 320 devices. Or downgrade to version 3.5 this allows that ap to manage up to 11 others. Yes, you don't get all the bells and whistles of remote web management, but it works just fine.
