Introducing Data Center Community licenses

I'm Alison Huselid, Head of Product for Data Center at Atlassian. As we shared in our last post, we’ve been working on a solution for those of you who work for charitable non-profit organizations that you require community discounts for our Data Center products.

Based on your feedback, we are introducing free Data Center Community subscriptions (covering both product and Marketplace apps) beginning February 2, 2021. If you currently qualify for a server community license, you will be able to request a Data Center Community subscription here on February 2, 2021.

As a reminder, charitable non-profit organizations that are non-government, non-academic, non-commercial in nature, and have no religious affiliation are eligible for our community licenses. You will need to re-apply each year, the same way you do today for your Server Community licenses.

Until then and for an additional three years, you’ll continue to have access to maintenance and support for your server products, in line with commercial license customers.

Check out What’s new? Updates related to the server end of sale and support to follow more of the updates, resources, and answers that we're prioritizing in response to listening to your feedback.


Thank you very much, Atlassian! Our organisation appreciates this very much :)

Thank you so much for this announcement @Alison Huselid and the Atlassian Team. This will be a huge improvement to our organization, and will keep us on Atlassian products for many years to come.

great news !!! :) Thank you Atlassian ;) 

As the IT manager for a small non-profit this is a huge weight off my mind, thank you so much!  I didn't expect Atlassian to solve this problem so neatly for their community license users.

Hello Alison, if your information from Nov 20, 2020 is correct, why your colleagues from <> even today Dec 01, 2020 still inform your customers, that there NO community discounts for your Data Center products? Thanks in advance, Leo

Hello Alison, Thanks a lot for your quick and friendly reply!

Hey @Alison Huselid,

Just to make sure I understand clearly, we can begin applying for data center licenses in February 2021?

Yes, that is correct @Alex Janes

Aha, that's magic option to make an experiments :) 

Dear Atlassian team,

thanks for the great option.

without this, we would not be able to continue our teamwork with the same quality, which would also affect our service performance

Thank you very much


Hi all

What will happen with the current Server Open Source licenses? Will they be converted to this kind of Community Licenses?

@Alison Huselid If we've had Community licenses already for 8+ years, we're approved to receive a Data Center Community License?
