When I buy JIRA Software, does it include JIRA Core?


Is JIRA Software an add-on to JIRA core?  Or can I just buy "JIRA Software" and get all the features of JIRA Core + the features of JIRA Software?

Thank you

(The JIRA Software purchasing page is letting me buy JIRA Software without forcing me to add JIRA Core)

JIRA Software is an application that runs on a JIRA Core platform.  (I'm being fussy about wording because "add-on" is a different thing to an application.  Despite the fact that they are both things you add to JIRA Core)

A JIRA Software download  includes Core because it is needed to run Software on top of.  And, of course, JIRA Software licences automatically include a Core licence (i.e. if you give a user access to Software, they can use all the Core functions too)

So, when I go to https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/pricing?tab=cloud and see that it is $75/month for 15 users, is that the true cost?

Or do I also have to pay another $75/month to get JIRA Core, too?  (Thus, total would be $150/month for 15 users).
