Hey there @Michael Schloemp and @Christian Czaia, @Frederic de Bovee is correct: if you're under active software maintenance, you're welcome to upgrade to JIRA 7 at no additional cost. Apologies for any confusion and I've linked upgrade instructions for you here.
At the time of your JIRA license renewal, you will indeed be quoted for a JIRA Software renewal and can contact us should you wish to use JIRA Core instead.
We have also rebranded our Git solutions under the Bitbucket name which is why you've seen the change from Stash to Bitbucket Server. Please find more information on this for you here.
Sorry for any confusion. Please see Darline's response.
How JIRA Software licenses work
The new JIRA Software application includes heaps of features like boards, sprints, and reports that are included for free with your existing JIRA license. If it's possible for your organization, we recommend upgrading to JIRA Software as soon as possible so you can take advantage of them - they'll be provided by your current license.
If you renew or upgrade your current JIRA license after JIRA Software is released, you'll receive a JIRA Software license (not a JIRA license). You can receive maintenance and support for your existing JIRA application under a valid JIRA Software license until you're ready to update the version of software you're using. Your bill will reflect the pricing for JIRA Software, even if you haven't updated your application. For information about the compatibility between licenses and JIRA applications, see the JIRA license compatibility matrix.
Could you please details this information ?
Due to :
It seems to me the JIRA 6.x licences are enough to get JIRA software.
Only at renewal you will have to choose either JIRA core only or JIRA core+ software (And pay for it)
If it is not the case, there is a mistake on this document.
What makes no sense is the loss of functionalities from 6.4 to 7 core. I have software development projects but no use of Agile and don't have JIRA agile licence. Without the software licence, I will loose the features 'Development tool integration' (I use fisheye) and the release hub which are part of JIRA 6.x. (I tested it on a eval server and you need a 'software project' for that.) If it is the case it is a no go for JIRA 7.
