Once the license expires...

Hi guys,

The company I am with is no longer renewing Jira/Confluence licenses, I just wanted to know if Jira will still be read-only (for the current data on it) or will we have access to it via 1 account (Admin).

Thanks in advance.

If it's OnDemand, you'll lose all usage.

If it's download, it will continue to work absolutely fine as before. You lose support and you can't upgrade past the last released version, but it'll work fine.

PS: For the download one, it will become a READ-ONLY instance, as the license get expired.

Er, no. If it is evaluation, it will be read only. If it is a bought licence that expires, it will continue to work. Unless Atlassian have suddenly changed their licence terms without warning?
