Do my Jira and Confluence License counts need to be the same?

If we want to integrate Jira and Confluence but not all users will be using Jira am I able to have different numbers of licensed users for Jira and Confluence?

No, it may be different. If you will use Jira as userbase, you can manage number of confluence users by managing groups in conlfuence global permissions.

It depends on how you integrate Jira and Confluence for getting your userbase and your definition of your groups, but in the general case the licenses do not need to match.

Andris,

We have confluence now and are looking to add Jira so not sure we can use Jira for our userbase.

We are also moving to an SSO solution so we would no longer use the internal confluence directory.

I sounds like in general they do not have to be the same which is good to know.
