I am new to the Community aspect, but have some work experience handling Administration duties of Atlassian for my company. I have been studying and started the road towards badges and certifications.
I came across confusion when I read about the Atlassian Certified Expert course requirements. I am planning to take the following courses in Path 1:
However, as probably noticed, I run short of one more course required from any of the following:
My question is can an individual become a Atlassian Certified Expert with only Cloud, and without Jira Service Product? My company does not utilize the Data Center due to expected retirement or Jira Service per no business need at this time. The Atlassian Product Family that we use are Atlassian Confluence, Jira Software Cloud and Atlassian Access.
This is important to me, because I am one of the few "go-to" experts in my company for Atlassian and wish to be certified. However, I rather be told its not possible or they are updating to provide more cloud courses to 'even the requirement field', so I do not mess up my future education with Atlassian.
We have some exciting news to share! In January or February of 2023, there will be a new Cloud-only path to Atlassian Certified Expert that includes an Atlassian Organization Administrator certification. This means that ACE can be earned either without Jira Service Management OR without Confluence Space Administration.
Hi @Brandon Haverland , we don't have an exact release date yet. It's close though!
At this stage we're simply holding back while we check to make sure that the courses and exam are updated for changes to org admin features that are happening in real time. Would you check back with us in 2 weeks to see where we stand with a release date?
Atlassian Organization Administrator Certification is now officially available under the Atlassian Cloud Organization Admin Learning path at Atlassian University.
Currently, it is provided at a Limited-time introductory price of 100$(instead of 249$).
When you purchase it, will grant you access to a well-designed and very helpful Exam Success course, and also You’ll receive a voucher to schedule and take your exam without additional costs.
I hope that helps.
@Panagiotis do you have a direct URL for that Exam Success course? I booked my exam on the PSI site, before it was updated to show as available on Atlassian University, so I never got any link to the Exam Success course. Curious if I automatically have access or it'll prompt me to buy it.
@Ed Osborn the same happened to me. It will prompt you to buy this again but if the exam is more than 48 hours away you can cancel it and get the refund automatically. Then you will be able to reschedule using the voucher. This is what I did.
If the exam is in less than 48 hours I would suggest you to contact Atlassian support for that matter.

Hi @Sierra Valdez , thanks for your question and congrats on deciding to get certified.
I agree with you that currently, if you are only using Cloud and not Service Management, that there isn't a pathway for you to get Atlassian Certified as an expert.
My understanding is that this qualification should be for people who have achieved a level of expertise in both platforms, self-hosted and Cloud. If you aren't using self-hosted, that is fine, but it would also not make sense to have a certification to say you are an expert in both platforms if you use only Cloud. It is possible, for example, to install a local instance of a self-hosted Jira and teach yourself and using the Atlassian University to achieve the Data Center certifications. That is what I did to get the Project admin certification for Jira Data Center. It depends on your commitment to study and also the financial and time resources you have available to you, if this would be feasible.
I would encourage you anyway to get certified in Jira Cloud, as a project admin and then for the Jira Cloud platform, but at the moment, I think it wouldn't be possible for you to become a certified expert. I would say it is worth keeping an eye on the page about the Atlassian Certfied Expert because it might be the case in some near future that Atlassian create another pathway.
@Vivek Chauhanin In addition, I am also on the verge of going on this path towards certification and this is what I found out recently.
There is an "only Cloud Requirement" pathway now and a new Certification is yet to be released,
This would be available later this year.
