Jira Software Pricing & Licensing

Dear community,

I looked for a post dealing with the licensing issue ( , but couldn't find one. We have a lot of customers (in Germany), with less then 500 users, who users JIRA Software, Confluence, Bitbucket etc. For most of them, it is not possible, to move into Atlassian Cloud for many reasons.

We fear that our medium-sized customers will no longer be interested in purchasing Atlassian products in three years, and they will definitely  not change to the Data Center Edition.

It would be interessting to hear some other thoughts about this issue.


Best regards

Hi @Dirk Küver-Christen

Currrently there is indeed no other option as the 500user DC license. 

Atlassian seems to be looking at alternatives but at this time it is all speculation (and hope for many companies).

You could take a look at this thread: and post your concern/question there.

From what I read arround the community they are looking at what the possibilities are for companies that cannot move to Cloud (why not?) and for other smaller companies that don't need/want the 500 user license of Datacenter.

At the moment tho, it's all speculation and we have to wait untill we hear more news on the roadmap.

Hi @Dirk Ronsmans ,

thanks for your reply, the link helps me a lot. I hope, Atlassian will think about their decission, to make a lot of partners and customers feel uncomfortable.

Best regards
