how do you upgrade the test environment license

Hi,

I am upgrading from confluence 2.10 to 3.5 and then on to 4.3. I am not hugely familiar with confluence. Could someone explain the steps on how to upgrade the test license or do I even need to do this? Do I need to get the credentials for the atlassian account which the licenses are associated with?

All help is much appreciated:)

There are two types of License, one is for versions prior 3.0 and the other is for 3.0 and above. When you upgrade to Confluence 3.5, you need to upgrade your license from your account at https://my.atlassian.com. If you have valid license, you just need to put your server ID to generate the new license. If you are doing this for testing purpose, we would suggest you to go with Evaluation license. Hope it helps.

Perfect thanks so much

If your license is under software maintenance, you can use a developer license during the upgrade. When you are ready to put the new server into production you'd just enter your commercial license.

Thanks Jim, the license is no longer under software maintenance im afraid, it expired some time ago

Ok, then the evaluation license is the way to go. :)

Hi, here you have a question that it's almost the same, and has a great answer on how to from 2.10 to 4.3.

Hope this helps.

Oh! My bad. Actually you don't have to update your license, since license it's for amount of users and not for versions. The same license works for all versions.

Unlikely, if your current data has a valid Deve/Test licence installed already, than that should travel with the data as it upgrades.

I'd still get hold of the Atlassian account though - just in case!

Thanks Ramiro, I was actualy asking about the license procedure not the upgrade procedure. Do I need o get a new license for the upgrade of the test environment?

The license on the site at the moment ran out in 09, Im guessing I need to get a new license for the upgrade of the production and then I can get a new developer license, is this correct?
