Yes, as long as you run them on different ports. Look for the "server.xml" file in both installations - they'll both say port 8080 by default, just change one of them to another port.

You may need to think about resources as well - Jira can be a bit memory hungry sometimes.

Hi Kite,

As Nic says this is certainly possible.

But why do you want this? Why don't you use one JIRA for all your users (developers and clients alike)?

Best regards,


we are in still configuration phase.So in one application clients will test.If any changes are there will do in 2nd application.and update the same in the first application.

Hi Kite,

Why can't you simply do this with a test project in your development environment?

If you use 2 enviromnents you also need 2 licenses, which seems an unnecessary cost to me.

You ofcourse also set up a production JIRA for use by your developers and clients for ordinary work. And a testing JIRA for tests by some clients and yourself. You can then use your normal license for the production JIRA and a developers license for the testing JIRA.

Best regards,
