Our team is currently using Jira software for product development in the cloud. We are evaluating a company-wide rollout, providing Jira for other departments such as Marketing, HR, Finance etc. For these departments, Jira Core in its more basic functionality would be more than sufficient, especially as we want to avoid unnecessary complexity.
My question is, whether it is possible to have Jira Software users (my team) on the same instance as Jira Core users (other departments), with both parties being able to work in Jira Core? If yes, can Jira Core users access Jira Software (view or even use it with the limited functionality of Core)?
Thank you very much for your help!
Hi @Anian Stäbler,
Yes, you can use both software and core license on the same instance.
For licensing: Business users who are not doing any agile or development work can simply leverage JIRA Core licenses. You can buy Core licenses separately. For those who will access both sorts of projects, they have to buy JIRA Software licenses, and cannot simply have Core licenses. JIRA Software users can access both types of projects.
