Does anyone know if the free development instance (cloud version) allow you to replicate your existing cloud production site? Or do you have to create your production site frome scratch under your development site ?

Please advise...

Thank you everyone

Have a look at this link. You will be able to get there a free development instance. But only one user is allowed there. If you have more, then you have to pay.

can you plz help me knowing that for how may days for one user this is free ?

@ankit sharma the development instances have no time length limit as long as you stay within the number of users allowed for each product.

You might also be interested in keeping an eye out for our Cloud Free tier announced yesterday. Pretty soon you'll be able to have a Cloud instance with slightly higher user counts that might be useful for your needs.

Hi Matthew,

As far as I'm aware, we don't have any tools to assist you with cloning a Cloud instance. However, you can export the issues from your production instance and import them into your development instance. If your projects are depending on any add-ons, you'll want to install those in your development instance as well.

Hello Matthew, if you are open to it this is a topic I would like to discuss with you (I am a Product Manager at Atlassian).  If you desire please contact me at: fselvas at Atlassian dot com - just a note:  I am away for a week, so apologies in advance for any delay in my response

Hello Matthew:   coming back to this thread now that I am back.  Would it be possible for you to have a conversation with me about this topic? Please contact me at: fselvas at Atlassian dot com


I have the same question. Reading: ..I understood one can get a limited users' dev environment. While following the link I can only get 7 day full trial.

So is there a free dev cloud environment or not?

Thanks in advance

Hey @Tomasz Maciejak ,

You may be seeing what looks like a 7 day free trial (and no info box about the site being a developer instance) if you're not already signed in to an Atlassian account via when trying to create a new instance.

However, with the introduction of "general usage" Free Cloud, there's no longer a need for a separate free developer instance. You can sign up for a Free instance from the pricing pages or by clicking here.

The directions for putting the site into Development Mode to install non-Marketplace apps still apply. On the Manage apps page in your instance's administration, click Settings at the bottom of the page, then check the development mode box and click Apply.
