Does a full license for Atlassian Tools entitle us to license our production and development environments?

Hi @John Lisle 👋

Please see the below from Atlassian's support article - Get a developer license for Jira Server...

Atlassian supplies "developer" licenses that can be used by existing commercial license holders who wish to deploy non-production installations of our software to use in QA/staging environments. Developer licenses are free-of-charge to commercial license holders and, like our commercial offerings, they include 12 months of updates starting from the purchase date of the commercial license.If you hold a commercial license, you can obtain a free developer license by following these steps:


  1. Log in to your Atlassian account.
  2. Under the "Licenses" heading, all of your licenses will be displayed. Click the plus sign next to a JIRA license to view its details.
  3. Click the 'View Developer License' link in the bottom right corner of the license detail panel, below your commercial license key.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,


Thank you @Laura Holton

I don't have Atlassian Account details, so I'll need someone else to get the developer license.
One other thing, if you don't mind...I have a trial instance running at present, if I license that instance with the dev license, am I able to reinstall it without a problem? I noticed that when I added the trial license, it asks for a serverID, but if I reinstall, as it's a VM, that will likely change, I'm thinking??
Thanks again!!

Hi @John Lisle 

Atlassian offers developer license concept when you have renewed the license for active maintenance.
