Is Jira free for teams up to 5 members (like Confluence)?

I'm a member of a small development team (we're just 3 developers) and I've been wondering if I can use JIRA as well for free.

JIRA server (host yourself) costs USD 10 for up to 10 users, see

As far as I know, it is the same for Confluence. I don't know how you got 5 users for free. Maybe an old pricing structure?

[~mikkel christiansen] That is correct, JIRA licensing is the same as for Confluence - and as far as I know it's been that way for years, UNLESS you work for an organization that is non-profit or a charity.  For those organizations, you simply have to qualify for a Community license:, and these are self-hosted licenses (not available for Cloud).

JIRA and Confluence Cloud for 10 or less users is USD$10/month (each).

after 7 days of trial period you may shift to up-to-5-users free plan. 7 days are really nothing to understand the product and sooner or later your project team will grow to 5+ members anyway, so smart move from Atlassian IMO.
