Hi @Saurav Saxena,

The ACP-610 is designed for people who are using Server/Data Center.  While the ACP-620 is meant for those on Cloud.

I hope that helps!


I want to go for certification which can be used across the organisations. How I can decide this that I need to go for Data center or cloud?

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Nov 22, 2021

@Saurav Saxena I would start with what your current company is using.  Either Jira Cloud or Jira Server/Data Center.  As you will have better success of passing the certification exam for what you are most familiar with (based on what you are using day to day).  If you then want to try and also obtain the certification for the other deployment method that is up to you.

For reference ACP-610 replaces the ACP-600, but that is only because there were no Cloud certifications at the time the ACP-600 was first introduced.

I hope that helps you decide.

Thanks @Jimmy Seddon

This would be really helpful.

I want to implement JIRA in my organisation. So if you can also tell what is the preferable option for the organisations. Also, how the JIRA would be different on the basis of cloud or data center for a project manager.

@Saurav Saxena I'm going to start by saying that if you aren't currently using Jira you should not be considering an certifications at this time.  Atlassian recommends about a year of experience using the products before attempting the certifications.

Which route to go depends on your company and may be a better question for the New to Jira group, but I'll try to give you some pointers here (at a VERY high level).

- Data Center is for companies that need to control when they upgrade and where their data is stored.

- Cloud is best for companies that don't that to have to maintain infrastructure for Jira or worry about  upgrades.  Are comfortable with regular feature changes and want Jira to be accessible for users from anywhere.

I hope that helps!

ACP 610 and 620- both test your knowledge of JIRA as a Project Administrator. 

One on Cloud instance on JIRA and the other on the Data Center version.


The topics covered under examination are also identical.. just cloud has more sections like Automations etc. 


Best of Luck :)

Hi @Saurav Saxena 

The ACP-610 is designed for Project Administration for Datacenter and The ACP- 620 is designed to Managing Jira Cloud Projects.





Thanks Mayur.

Hi @Saurav Saxena 

Both certification is same like both are for the Jira Project Admin only. The only difference is ACP- 610 Is for Datacenter and ACP-620 is for cloud.

In ACP-620 you have few new topics.
