As Nic said, if you're not using JIRA Agile today, you can upgrade from JIRA to JIRA Core using your existing JIRA license. Just follow all the same upgrade proceedures but use the JIRA Core installer instead of the JIRA Software installer. Your existing JIRA license will be treated as a JIRA Software license, but users will be able to log in and use all JIRA Core functionality as if you had a JIRA Core license. When it comes time to renew your license, contact us and we will give you a one-time discount on a new JIRA Core license so it costs the same price as it would to renew your JIRA license.
Alternatively, if you are using JIRA Agile right now, just follow the instructions to upgrade to JIRA Software. It will look and feel pretty much the same.
Again, JIRA Software is JIRA + Agile. JIRA Core is just plain JIRA without Agile. So if you want to upgrade to just JIRA Core, you'll lose the Agile functions (Again, it's a bit more complex than that, the lines are a little blurred) The price has gone up a bit on a flat conversion, but the price of JIRA hasn't gone up much, if at all, over several releases. One option you now have on pricing is to reduce the number of users too - with JIRA + Agile, you needed the licence numbers to match. Now you can have 100 Core users and 25 Software(Agile) users, which could reduce the costs.
Hi Mohammed, if you don't use the Software features (such as Agile and the Development tools panel), then JIRA Core is aimed at you. You can get that either by downloading JIRA Core directly (https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/core/update), or by downloading JIRA Software which includes JIRA Core (if you wish, you can then uninstalled the Software part of the application from the Versions and Licenses page). Your current JIRA 6 license is automatically treated as a JIRA Software license, but will work in both JIRA Core and JIRA Software. You will continue to be eligible for support and updates until maintenance expiry whether you are running Software or Core. If your maintenance reaches expiry and you want to move to a JIRA Core license, that is certainly possible; it will work in your Software installation but won't enable the Software features. In this case when you install your new Core license, you will need to manually uninstall the Software license.
I’m a designer on the Jira team. For a long time, I’ve fielded questions from other designers about how they should be using Jira Software with their design team. I’ve also heard feedback from other ...
