Server Licenses

What does a new Jira Core license cost? Show

We have designed Jira Core licensing to be simple, upfront and equitable. Your initial purchase entitles you to perpetual use of the software, and includes 12 months of software maintenance – access to new software releases/enhancements, our world-class support team, critical bug fixes, and security patches – from the date of purchase. While renewing your software maintenance annually is optional, it is strongly encouraged in order to ensure continuous access to all of the benefits listed above.

Please note that 10-sser Starter licenses are not eligible for support. Instead, support queries can be raised with the Atlassian Community.

How much is it to renew my Jira Core software maintenance? Show

All server licenses include 12 months of software maintenance – access to new software releases/enhancements, our world-class support team, critical bug fixes, and security patches. Beyond this initial period, we strongly encourage renewing your software maintenance every 12 months at our renewal pricing.

Does Atlassian offer discounts for customers migrating from server or Data Center to cloud? Show

Yes. For a limited time, existing server and Data Center customers who move to a 1,001+ user cloud subscription are eligible for a multi-year loyalty discount. This applies to customers moving to both our Standard and Premium cloud subscriptions for Jira Software, Jira Service Desk, Jira Core, and Confluence.

Please note: In order to qualify, you must have purchased your server or Data Center license/subscription before October 3, 2019 and your server or Data Center license must be migrated using a free cloud migration trial.

To learn more, please visit our cloud migration faq or contact us for additional assistance.

What is software maintenance? Show

Software maintenance, included in your first year of use*, gives you the following benefits:

  • Security patches
  • Critical bug fixes
  • New features & enhancements
  • Access to Atlassian's world-class support team for technical troubleshooting
  • Developer license* keys (lets you test the upgrades before committing)
  • Potential to enroll in Beta Programs

In order for your software maintenance to remain active year-round, you must purchase it annually. Learn more about our renewing terms for software maintenance above. We also suggest making sure your business processes allow for frequent upgrades so your team can continue reaping the benefits enjoyed by other world-class teams.

*Please note that 10-User Starter server licenses are not eligible for non-production Developer licenses or technical support.

How do I request a quote? Show

Requesting an obligation-free quote is easy! You will just need to submit your request through the Atlassian Store. In the final step check Get a Quote and click Submit. Only quotes submitted though our online form are considered valid, screen prints of the shopping cart is not the same as a quote.

How are apps licensed? Show

App licenses must match the Jira Core user count and type. For instance, a 25-user commercial Jira Core Server license will require a 25-user commercial Advanced Roadmaps for Jira license.

What do I do if Jira Core has exceeded the licensed user count? Show

An active user in Jira Core is by definition any user account in the system with the Jira Users global permission, i.e. anyone who can log in. Unlimited anonymous users are permitted on all licenses.

If you have exceeded your license count, you will need to remove users or groups from the Jira Users global permission. See Unable to Create Issues due to Exceeded License.

How is Jira Core Server licensed? Show

A Jira Core Server commercial/academic/starter license entitles you to:

  • Deploy a single installation of Jira Core in a production environment on one server
  • Unlimited projects and issues
  • Perpetual Jira Core use
  • Software maintenance for 12 months - including all updates and online support
  • Application source code (under a developer source license which allows for broad customization)

Licensing fees are quoted per number of active users. An active user in Jira Core is by definition any user account in the system with the Jira Core Users global permission or the Jira Administrators permission, i.e. anyone who can log in. Unlimited 'anonymous users' are permitted on all licenses.

An academic license is available for qualified educational and academic institutions (learn more). Please see our Software License Agreement for more details.

What is the cost to upgrade my Jira Core Server license to a higher user tier? Show

Jira Core Server can be upgraded to a higher user tier at any time. All data is seamlessly upgraded, and all upgrades include 12 months of software maintenance commencing from the date payment is processed. This will override any existing maintenance period.

Please Note: Upgrade pricing is dependent on what you have paid previously. If you purchased before 3-Oct-2019 you may be on a different pricing plan, and the table below will not apply. To verify your upgrade cost, please create a Server upgrade quote via the Atlassian Store.

Upgrades to Academic server licenses are 50% of the pricing seen above.

Note: If you're using Advanced Roadmaps for Jira or any other Marketplace app, the app license must match the user tier of the parent product. For example, a 500-User Jira Core license will require a 500-User Advanced Roadmaps for Jira license.

Starter licenses can be upgraded to a higher tier for the price of a new license at the desired tier.
