license for testing environment

I have a question about licensing. We have a license for Jira and confluence for 500 users. I need to test upgrade of software on test environment. Can I use the same license for testing, or do I need to purchase evaluation one?

No, you should not use the same licence, that's for production

You don't need a second licence for testing though - go to your atlassian licences on my.atlassian and look for the licence keys to the right. Under there, there is a link to "developer licence" - use that for testing!

Hi Nic - Thank you for the response. I am also experiencing the same issue as the OP.

we have basic JIRA license for 10 people and I would like to have test environment before I introduce plugins and stuff like that to PRD environment.

I don't see developers license next to my licenses.  We are planning to upgrade to 25 licenses soon. do you know If I will have access to developer license at that time?

Thank you


Developer licences are not available for 10 users.

Nic - we are upgrading to 25 user license soon. Do you know if I get developers license at that time with 25 users?

You should do, from memory, it's only starter and non-commercial licencees who don't get them, but I can't actually find a doc that gives me that 25 any more!

Thank you Nic,.

Question: What is the max license for usrs under the Developer licences? Can you manage them the same why as in the PROD?


what will happen with the pluggings will they have also developer licenses? 

Yes, they'll run in a development mode (no change to functions)

For the previous comment that I missed - developer licences match your production numbers.
