Test-Environment for Confluence


We're using Confluence on a virtual-Machine.
This VM with confluence is our productive environment.

Is it possible to copy and start this productive environment(VM) and use
this copy as TEST-Platform?
e.g. for testing Confluence-Addons.

Or will there be problems with the Original Confluence-Key/Subscription?
Will it be deactivated?
Whats a alternative to this scenario?

Hi @JERemy-IT , 


you should have a Developer license on your account for Confluence, you can use this as the license key for your test platform.

Even if you do use the production key for a while, it will not crash your server, it'll still work fine. As long as it's for a non-production environment you're good to go.


Let me know if this helps, 



Hi Alexis,

thanks for the fast reply.
Where can i find this "Developer-License" ? 

in my "Licensing-Portal"
I still have 2 Trial Licenses and
my Production-License called : Confluence (Server) 10 Users: Starter License

I won't use the trial license, because this will expire soon in the future.

Do you mean i should use the mentioned Starter License?
And set the Test environment to "Test-mode" ?

Hi @JERemy-IT , 


you can check the documentation here to get your developer license :

You need to click on your Confluence production license and under the license key click on "View my developer license".
