Error when trying to install plug-in: "isValid License type restriction failed. Required COMMERCIAL, actual DEVELOPER"

My company has a Production instance of Confluence and a dev/test instance of Confluence.

I am trying to install Multi Excerpt Plugin diagramly plug-ins to the dev/test instance, but I am getting an error. The error message in the log file is isValid License type restriction failed. Required COMMERCIAL, actual DEVELOPER.

Is there a way that I can install the free or trial version in our dev/test environment which has an DEVELOPER license type? There are some other plugins I'd like to install too.

I want to install in the dev/test instance and not production, so the user who is requesting it can try it out there first. I don't want to install it in the Production instance and risk that users from other teams start using the macros before we decide to keep them.

Does this happen for just these two plugins, are does it happen for any plugin you've tried?

I tried one more plugin and it also had the same error. I contacted Atlassian support again to follow-up on this question since I think it's a problem with our Confluence instance and not the plugins.

The two plugin vendors I contacted both said they didn't do any license type validation. Additionally, the License Validation Rules (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/UPM/License+Validation+Rules) states in the “Conditions that Invalidate a Plugin License” section: “If the application license is developer, all plugin license types are compatible.” So, I would expect all plugins should be compatible if the plugin isn't checking explicitly. And it seems like too much of a coincidence that I would get the same install error from plugins for three different vendors.
