Hi Ravi,

See: https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/purchase-licensing#licensing-9 "9. Would additional licenses be needed if the software is deployed on a development server or staging server for testing purposes? No, instead your technical contact can simply create a developer license. Developer licenses can be used by existing commercial and academic license holders (not Starter Licenses) who wish to deploy non-production installations of our software to assist with development and testing efforts. Developer licenses can also be used for non-production installations of our software deployed on a cold stand-by server." This license is provided free of charge and the maintenance expiration of this license will be synchronized to the maintenance expiration date of your product. The technical contact for the license can generate a developer key by following these steps: Log in to My Atlassian. Click the '+' sign of your Atlassian product, your account management screen will display. In the Actions section click "View Developer License." Review the Developer License agreement. Finally click "View" to agree. A license key will be presented. Copy and paste this key into your development server. You may generate more than one license key if running multiple pre-production, e.g. development, testing, and QA, servers. Please note: $10 Starter Licenses do not include access to Developer Licenses. Starter License holders can use our evaluation license to test upgrades or purchase a second Starter License.

Hi Ravi,

Yes, you do need to generate a separate license for your test / staging environment, however these are available free for commercial license holders.

The license holder will simply need to login to their My.Atlassian account to generate the license (there are step by step instructions at https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/purchase-licensing#licensing-9).
