Hello,

For a new Jira instance, we would like to know if it is necessary to renew license every years.

I know that renewing license gives maintenance support, but what I need to know if it is possible to continue with the first license acquired the following years without renewing it.

If this is possible, what disadvantages are there?

Yes, Atlassian software continues to function without a license. What you lose is basically

  1. Support/Maintenance
  2. The ability to upgrade to versions released after your license end date

Also, if you change your mind later, after letting you maintenance go unpaid, you need to catch that up when you do finally wish to upgrade .. Even if delayed. Happy to help you w/ this or any licensing quotes or questions .. Cheers, Ellen@appfusions.com
