Can I move from Jira Server to Data center with expired licenses?

Can I move from Jira Server to Data center with expired licenses?


If I have an expired licenses for jira products and want to upgrade from server into data center, is it required to renew the existing licenses? or I can purchase the data center new license and upgrade without renewing the expired server licenses?

Data Center requires a new licence, a Server licence (expired or not) will not allow you to run a server as a DC node.

You will need to buy a new DC licence (you can ignore the expired server licences, they won't stop you migrating to DC.  In fact, one migration route is to convert your existing server to a DC node and part of doing that is to replace the server licence with a DC licence)

Hi @Aya AlJboor ,

Are you going to use DC with cluster or single node ?

  1. If  single node , you can purchase a new license and update your new license in jira license portal.

  2. For cluster also same , but you need more setup related things .



I will be using single node. so purchasing DC licenses is enough, right?

Yes , you can purchase DC license and update in portal.

@Aya AlJboor 

I'm sorry. I don't have much idea about these things friend.

Ok, really Thanks

I would contact billing and licencing about that, from 

You would have the upgrade discount if your server licences were still maintained, but I do not know about expired.

You are right @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ 

I have contacted Atlassian in this regard and they confirmed that if the product license is expired, I will lose the discount moreover the datacenter upgrade prices will be increased after 2nd of Feb
