Difference between Jira 6 and 7

I would like to upgrade from Jira 6.3 to Jira 7.12. My Jira 6.3 has following Add-Ons: FishEye,
Crucible, JIRA Software, Checklist for Jira, JIRA Agile, JIRA Calender, JIRA Charting, JIRA Suite Utilities, JIRA Toolkit.

Could one tell me, which of These Add-Ons are freely included in Jira 7.12 so that I know whether I have to purchase separate License separately?

Perhaps there is a link, where I can find the differences between the versions.

Hi @Dr. Kizito Ssamula Mukasa 

  1. FishEye: This I believe is now a product rather than an add-on and it is not free. See here.
  2. Crucible: Same as fisheye, see here.
  3. Checklist for JIRA - not free, see here.
  4. JIRA Agile is now JIRA software and I would recommend just buying a JIRA Software license since this comes with the standard JIRA as well bundled.
  5. JIRA Calendar: Free, see here.
  6. JIRA Charting: Free, see here.
  7. Jira Suite Utilities: No longer free.
  8. JIRA Toolkit: Free.

How to confirm in future if an add-on is free or not, read Atlassian website, they mostly define this for add-ons that became applications(Agile = Software, Service Desk = Service Desk). Read the upgrade guides atlassian put out(Doubly important you read this before you attempt your upgrade as there were a lot of changes).

Lastly for add-on go to and this should tell you if an add-on is free or not when you open the add-on's page.


Thanks for this Information. I will visit the links.

Cheers :-)
