Using JIRA AGILE without JIRA?


I am quite interested in using "JIRA AGILE" (f.e. 50 licenses). Does it mean that

I even have to buy "JIRA" with 50 licenses too?  I am quite confusing, it seems to me

that JIRA AGILE needs to be purchased with JIRA. JIRA AGILE is not a stand alone


Thanks for your request!

JIRA Agile is an addon for JIRA.  It can't run alone, it's using all of JIRA's data as well as the application as a container.

Hello Martin!


JIRA Agile works as an add-on for JIRA, so it is necessary to have a JIRA license with the same amount of users than Agile.

You're right - JIRA Agile does not work without JIRA!

Hello Martin,

In additional to the previous responses, JIRA Agile license must match the user count and type of the JIRA Server license it is being used with. For instance, a 25 User Commercial JIRA Server license will require a 25 User Commercial JIRA Agile license.
