Licence after upgrade confluence


I wanna try to upgrade confluence from 5.7.4 to the latest 6.x.

But my current license has expired.

Atlassian says "please update your license in Confluence before performing the upgrade"

May I do the upgrade before renew license ?

Thank you

Hi @mohamedanas.slim 

Yes, you need to update the license in Confluence before performing the upgrade. Otherwise, the upgrade will fail. Please go to and provide the necessary Confluence details and generate the evaluation license for now. This license will be valid for 29 days and then proceed for upgrade .



Hi @Yoganand Reddy -Appfire-

Thanks for the quick response.

Can I be sure that upgrade will be a success and that I do not loose my data? 

Otherwise, can I roll back to my previous license?

Thank you
