If you purchase an Atlassian product, you receive a license for that product which you can access through http://my.atlassian.com. These are production licenses, intended to run you Atlassian product.

For testing or development purposes you can get a developer license for the products that you have bought. If you go to http://my.atlassian.com and open one of the licenses, one of the actions is View developer license.

Developer licenses are intended for the following:

Developer licenses can be used by existing license holders who wish to deploy non-production installations of our software to assist with development and testing efforts. Developer licenses can also be used for non-production installations of our software deployed on a cold stand-by server.

So if your Docker container fulfills the requirements stated above, then it is OK to use a development license.



Hi , Thanks for your quick reply. We have purchased licenses for Atlassian tools & I checked the licenses on http://my.atlassian.com with my account but still I am not able to View developer license tab in license section. So how can I get that. SEN-3355779

In that case I would contact Atlassian support, they can surely help you out.

Hi, Nobody from Atlassian support team helped me out yet. So shall I contact them for it.

Hi Geert, I have sent mail to support@atlassian.com for above help. So I am waiting for their reply.
