We recently made an acquisition, is there a way to setup a parallel instance ondemand and merge the two JIRA & Confluence together?

Hi, we recently made an acquisition. We were wondering if we can create a separate instance (so they can make their own administration w/ JIRA & Confluence) OnDemand.

If not, I guess we can create a space for them and put them into their own group and create a project that can only be access by that group.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Pan,

I don't think there's an out of the box way to make two OnDemand instance parallel. You can have seprate instances but updates and work would be different in both instances. However, if you go for the option to merge both instances you can read more on this documentation.

Once merged, you can set permissions based on groups and users and allow users to only access their project and spaces.

Thanks, Razaq. Based on your comments, I thnk everything makes sense. As a follow up questoin about needing to have separate instances, would it also be separate license? We currently have a 500 users license for both JIRA & Confluence and we are only using less than 400 of them, the new acquisition only requiring a handful of licenses, would we need to purchase another set of licenses?

Regards,

Pan

If you for the option of two instances, yes. You'll need separate licenses.

Great, thanks for your answer Razaq.
