Looking at the Confluence migration guide, it looks like you can use the same license.   You just need to use your developer license first.  Shut down the old system and then replace with the production license.   If you are only using starter licenses, you probably need to buy a second license since a developer license might not be available.


Hi Shatha,

Adding to what Norman said, no, you don't need to buy a second license. You can go to your and generate a developer license or a trial one.
