Server Licenses

1. What does a new Jira Software license cost?

We have designed Jira Software 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-User Starter licenses are not eligible for Atlassian Support. Instead, support queries can be raised with the Atlassian Community.

2. How much is it to renew my Jira Software maintenance?

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.

Atlassian автоматически высылает ни к чему не обязывающий расчет стоимости за 90 дней до срока прекращения технического обслуживания по лицензии. Вы можете запросить расчет стоимости в любое время. Подробная информация приведена на этой странице часто задаваемых вопросов. Вы также можете оформить автоматическое продление на сайте

Срок действия обслуживания ПО продлевается с момента истечения срока действующего обслуживания, независимо от того, когда продление обслуживания было приобретено. Если вы планируете приобретать продление, рекомендуем сделать это как минимум за 30 дней до истечения срока действия.

3. What is software maintenance?

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. 

4. How do I request a quote?

Requesting an obligation-free quote is easy! You will just need to submit your request through our 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.

5. How is Jira Software licensed?

A Jira Software commercial/academic/starter license entitles you to:

  • Install Jira Software on a single instance in a production environment on 1 server
  • Perpetual Jira Software 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 Software 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 the Atlassian Software License Agreement for details.

6. What is the cost to upgrade my Jira Software license to a higher user tier?

You'll be pleased to know that you can upgrade Jira Software at any time. The upgrade process is very simple, and all your data is preserved. Upgrades include 12 months of software maintenance commencing from the date payment is processed. This will override any existing maintenance period.

Please Note: The below prices* are applicable for licenses purchased after 12-Oct-2018. Pricing for licenses purchased prior to 12-Oct-2018 will be calculated using the original purchase price.

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

7. How do I purchase a Server license upgrade?

There are two ways to generate a server license upgrade quote:

You can then check out, or save the no-obligation quote for later.
