We have a test environment where we have a clone of our production environment containing both JIRA and Confluence. I am about to upgrade Confluence but our testenvironment does not have a valid license (since our license is used in the production env.) Do we need 2 licenses to perform a testinstallation before we upgrade our production environment or is there some other solution to this?
Yes you need separate licences, but it's not too painful.
If you log into your "my atlassian" account and find your confluence licence, look beneath it and you'll find a link to "Generate developer licence". The developer licence must NOT be used for production, but it IS there for testing upgrades, failover, development work and even getting you through an upgrade if you have licence issues. Most importantly, the development licences do not cost you anything more than a few mouse clicks.
All of our Licenses above the $10 starter licenses have acces to a Developer license, which can be used for staging servers or cold stand-by servers. To generate your Developer license simply follow these steps:
If you have a $10 start license, you will need to use a trial license for staging purposes!
