Hi Mike!

JIRA Software is a standalone product, so you won't need a separate JIRA Core license in order to run JIRA Software. 

Hi Jonas, I have jira software and jira core on trial but nobody is using jira core. However when I let the trial expire, the team couldn't raise a ticket within jira software. What do I need to do to fix this?

Hi Matt, 

Go ahead and raise a ticket with our Customer Advocate Team so we can take a look at your account in detail. 

You can contact us at any time via the Purchasing and Licensing Contact Form.
