Certification path for Atlassian Certified Expert for Data Center/Server

Hi all,

Trying to understand the path forward for becoming an Atlassian Certified Expert. Based on what I'm reading I'm trying to stick with the Data Center/Server path option since those are the two products that I have heavily worked in the past 4 years. I guess there are some things I don't understand based on what is described at the bottom of the page.

  • ACP-JSD Atlassian Certified Jira Service Desk Administrator*

  • ACP-SA Atlassian Certified System Administrator* 

These both have * next to them and are not clickable. They are no longer being offered. In that list I need to have 4/5 and with 2 of them not being available how exactly do I get this certification in present time? The Cloud/Data Center/Server ones are also the same where 1 or 2 certifications appear no longer active so their paths can't be fully complete at this time either. 

Is someone maybe able to explain the path forward for someone like me to to stick with more Server/Data Center products and achieve this the Atlassian Expert status?

Hello @Harvey Bennett , to become a new Atlassian Certified Expert, you will need one Cloud certification.

I don't know if you already hold any certs, so I've simplified the paths to remove those that aren't offered anymore.

Hold BOTH of the following:

Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.
