Upgrade or rather transfer (license) from 5.5x to 6.x Edited

Hi. We installed 6.x Confluence SEN-XXXXXX using 10 starter license to test etc. Now we'd like, transfer the license from old one to new one in order to shutdown the old Confluence 5.x. Not sure how to proceed here.

I don't really want to post the license 

The old details: SEN-YYYYYY

I don't really want to post the numbers and names here. Please let me know.

Just check your old license can be install to Confluence 6. 

If your license didn't expired, you copy and paste into a new Confluence.

The license key can be viewed and copied from https://my.atlassian.com.

Nothing will happen if the old 5.x server is up for an interim period with the same license applied in Production. (I am anticipating that concern because it is commonly asked about.)

Thanks Gonchik & Ann, I shall give that a go! :)
