Hi @Kumlendra Parihar 

In short,

JIRA core = JIRA only without JIRA Agile

JIRA Software = JIRA core + JIRA Agile


Jira Core is purpose built for business teams to manage their work. You can create business type projects. Core features all the power of Jira (fine grained definition of work items and workflows, customisability, extensibility, JQL search, reporting/dashboarding etc.) This allows business teams to describe their work and processes without bumping into unfamiliar software concepts like releases or dev tool integrations.

Jira Software is purpose built to be the tool for agile teams to organise, track and do software development. It has all the capabilities of Jira Core + Agile capabilities.

In Jira software, you can create business projects as well as software projects like Scrum/ Kanban which have capabilities like Scrum/ Kanban boards and reports like burndown, etc.

As a result, It turns out that it is much more profitable to use JIRA Software because, in this version of the application, there is also JIRA core + JIRA Agile at once. Then what's the point of JIRA core? Maybe JIRA core is just cheaper? Sorry for the sudden and rather strange question. I don't understand why you decided to create two applications that do the same thing? You can't call one application an ad blocker and the other the best ad blocker and sell them separately. However, this is probably the wrong example. Sorry if I'm a little rude. I hope you can explain to me what is the difference between these applications! I wish you a good day!
