@Aya AlJboor  , That's a good question.

I think you will have to get onboarded to jira software. It is listed for category 'work management' apart from agile management.

JIRA software = JIRA core + Agile. So your core features will not be lost.

Thanks @Fazila Ashraf ,

  • So I should drop jira core from my plan, right?
  • what will happen for my historical data under the jira core in this case?
  • I have to count the jira core licenses and add them to the existing jira software licenses (e.g. jira core users are 200, jira software are 500 >>>> I have t purchase the tier of 700 licenses), right?
  • Handling the non IT business, will be using business project template of jira software?

your help is highly appreciated!

@Aya AlJboor  , jira software licensed users can work on jira core also. You do not have buy separate license for core.


The historical data shouldnt be lost.. But i would highly recommend you to get an eval of DC jira software and apply it on your test instance to see how it impacts the templates and history.


Just to give you a perspective, we use only jira software dc and we do have the business project templates along with the software templates and users with software licenses are able to work on the business projects also.
