What will happen to JIRA Agile trial during if we upgrade JIRA in the middle of it?


We are planning to upgrade from JIRA 5.2 to JIRA 6.4. We are currently using the 30-day JIRA Agile trial and are mid-sprint, and we'd like to keep this functionality after the upgrade. (We're in the process of purchasing the full JIRA Agile license, but that will take some time.)

So, my questions are:

  1. Will the JIRA Agile trial continue to work after the upgrade? Do we need to do anything special to re-apply it, or will it happen automatically? (Also these lines, will our existing trial, which is about halfway in, continue to have the approximate 15 days remaining after the update? Or will we need to get/request a new trial license?)
  2. In terms of version compatibility, our current JIRA Agile version is v., which is working with our JIRA 5.2 implementation. I suspect that there shouldn't be an issues with this JIRA Agile version when we upgrade to JIRA 6.4, but better safe than sorry so I figured I'd ask here.

Your trial license will work just fine. Your JIRA Agile version will not. Take a look at: for version compatibility information. Basically you will just need to upgrade and then update JIRA Agile. We always recommend doing this in a test environment before doing it in production. Instructions on setting up a staging environment can be found at:

Thanks, Boris. This is helpful. When we update JIRA Agile, will we be able to get a new 30-day trial license (or will our existing trial license be able to be applied to this update)?

The existing one will continue.

Got it - thanks for your quick responses!
