How does a 10 users Confluence license works with a 100 users Jira license?

I had a 100 users Jira license, but I want to use Confluence and Bonfire with 10 users license. Can I do that? Or I have to buy 100 users license?

Jira and Confluence are totally separate applications. For example we have unlimited number of users for Confluence but only 100 for Jira. Note that if you buy a plug-in (for either Confluence or Jira), you will have to buy the same number of users of licenses (e.g. Greenhopper works as a plugin for Jira so we had to buy 100 user license). Don't know about Bonfire but if it is a sepearate application, it should work similarly.

But what happens when I connect a Jira 100 to Confluence 10 and I want the users to not have to login again. I read somwhere that one can configure confluence to also use the jira user management, so that Jira users do not have to login again to confluence. Now when the confluence license has only 10 users how is that controlled?

Hi Rosalinda,

Great to hear you're interested in Bonfire and Confluence.

For Bonfire, as it is a global plugin for JIRA (similar to GreenHopper) your user tiers do need to match one another. If you have a JIRA 100 User license you will need Bonfire for JIRA 100 Users. The good news is, for a limited time, new Bonfire commercial licenses are 40% off their regular price!

For Confluence, your license tiers do not need to match JIRA. The two applications are independent of one another and can have different user tiers.

As Yan metioned, a good rule of thumb is most commercial plugins will need to match your Atlassian license user tier.

I hope this helps!
