Pricing and billing for Atlassian Access
How are you billed for Atlassian Access?
Atlassian Access uses a different billing model from other Atlassian Cloud products. Atlassian Access is billed per organization. You will only pay once per each unique billable user in your organization, regardless of the number of Atlassian Cloud products or sites they have access to. Only users who have access to a product supported by Atlassian Access will count towards your bill.
Unique billable user
To be counted as a unique billable user for your Atlassian Access subscription, the user needs to have an enabled, managed account in your organization that also has access to at least one Atlassian Access-supported product. Read more about managed Atlassian accounts.
Atlassian Access currently supports these products:
|Atlassian Access supported product||Billable users|
Any managed account
|Jira Software||Any managed account|
|Jira Service Desk||Only agents are billable
Portal customers are not billable
|Confluence||Any managed account|
|Stride||Any managed account|
|Bitbucket||Any managed account|
|Trello Free and Trello Business||
Any managed account after support for Trello is added later in 2018
If a user does not have access to any Atlassian Access-supported product in the above table, they'll be excluded from your Atlassian Access bill.
For example, if a user's account is only used to access Statuspage or Atlassian Community, with no licence to access any products in the table above, they will not be a billable user for Atlassian Access. Note that an organization admin is still able to manage the user's account from the 'Managed accounts' screen.
- If a user's account is only used to access Statuspage or Atlassian Community, with no licence to access any products in the table above, they will not be a billable user for Atlassian Access.
- If your organization has 100 users in Jira and 50 users in Confluence, and all of the Jira users are Confluence users. For Atlassian Access billing, your organization will only be billed for 100 users. Your organization will continue to be billed for 100 Jira users and 50 Confluence users under product billing.
The user will not count towards your Atlassian Access bill if you disable their Atlassian account in your organization at any point in the billing cycle. Note that disabling a user's Atlassian account will also prevent the user from using that account to raise technical support tickets, and accessing their my.atlassian.com account, support.atlassian.com, community.atlassian.com, and other free services.

Pricing for Atlassian Access
With Atlassian Access you are only billed once per user regardless of the number of Atlassian Cloud products or sites they have access to. Only users who has access to an Atlassian Access supported product (Jira Software, Jira Core, Jira Service Desk Agents, Confluence, Stride, Bitbucket and soon Trello) will count towards your bill. Atlassian Access offers monthly or annual payment options, depending on the needs of your organization.
Progressive discounts are available as your organization increase in size.
For the monthly tier, Atlassian Access starts at $3 per user for the first 250 users. Users 251-1000 will be $2 per user and users 1,001 and above will be $1 per user. There is no Starter level, so whether you have 1 user or 10 users in your organization, the minimum price per month is $30.
At the end of your billing period, the credit card or Paypal account on file will be automatically charged based on the number of unique billable users within your organization. Each of your billing contacts will receive a purchase confirmation email and paid invoice.
Price per user
|up to 250 users||$3|
|251 to 1000 users||$2|
Annual pricing is offered as a one year upfront subscription to Atlassian Access. Annual subscriptions are tier-based and currently offer a discount equal to 2 free months on an annualized basis. If you wish to change your subscription to annual pricing, log in to admin.atlassian.com and choose your organization. Then go to Billing > Billing details and click switch to annual. You can also purchase annual pricing directly by contacting Atlassian.
Annual User Tier
|1 – 10||$300|
|16 – 25||$750|
|26 – 50||$1,500|
|51 – 100||$3,000|
|101 – 200||$6,000|
|201 – 300||$8,500|
|301 – 400||$10,500|
|401 – 500||$12,500|
|501 – 600||$14,500|
|601 – 800||$18,500|
|801 – 1000||$22,500|
|1001 - 2000||$22,500 plus $2,000 per additional 200 users (or part of 200) over 1000|
|2001 +||$32,500 plus $2,500 per additional 250 users (or part of 250) over 2000|
For example, if you have 1,350 enabled, managed users, your annual cost would be $26,500, and your subscription would cover up to 1,400 users.

Manage your unique billable Atlassian Access users
There are two ways of managing the number of unique billable users in your organization. As Atlassian Access is billed when an enabled, managed account has access to a supported product, you can either disable the user's account at the organization level, or work with your site admin to remove the user's product access in your sites.
Disable a user's Atlassian account
As an organization admin, you can disable a user's Atlassian account to remove their access to Atlassian products.
To disable a user's Atlassian account, see Organization administration.
- Disabling a user's account will also prevent the user from using that account to raise technical support tickets, and accessing their my.atlassian.com account, support.atlassian.com, community.atlassian.com, and other free services.
- Disabled accounts do not count towards your Atlassian Access bill.
- You can always re-enable a user's account later from the Managed accounts screen.
Remove a user's product access at the site level
Site admins can manage user access for their Atlassian Cloud products. Another way of managing the number of unique billable users in your organization is by collaborating with your site admins to remove product access for accounts at the site level. To deactivate a user account in a Cloud site, see Invite, edit and remove users.

SAML single sign-on, two-step verification, and password policies functionality will immediately end and your users will see the following changes:
- Managed users won't log in using SAML single sign-on. Instead, they'll log in using their Atlassian account. Some users may need to set a new password for their Atlassian account.
- Two-step verification will no longer be enforced, so managed users can choose to disable that for their Atlassian account at any time.
- A password policy created with Atlassian Access will continue in effect, but won't be able to be updated.
Trello and Atlassian Access
Support for Trello will be available in the second half of 2018. Additional information will be communicated on this page and via email to existing Atlassian Access subscribers closer to the release date. Depending on whether you subscribe to any of the Atlassian Access supported products, your Trello Free and Business Class users may already be covered by Atlassian Access.
How Trello impacts Atlassian Access customers
When Trello is supported by Atlassian Access, Trello Free and Trello Business Class users who have enabled, managed accounts of your organization will be covered by Atlassian Access features, such as SAML single sign-on and two-step verification. These unique billable users will count towards your Atlassian Access bill.
If you're already subscribed to Atlassian Access, your bill will increase for the managed accounts in your organization that only have access to Trello and are not already covered by Atlassian Access. You can identify the number of Trello-only users by logging in to admin.atlassian.com, choosing your organization, then going to Billing > Manage subscriptions. You can find details about your new Atlassian Access bill amount, inclusive of any Trello users, on this page.
You will not be impacted by the addition of a Trello user if the user already has access to an Atlassian Access supported product. Any Atlassian Access features will be automatically enabled for those users and you will not be billed an additional amount.
Trello customers with no other Atlassian products
If you only manage Trello users but do not have other products supported by Atlassian Access, you will not be able to subscribe to Atlassian Access at this point in time.
Trello Enterprise is not affected by Atlassian Access. If you're an existing Trello Enterprise customer, your bill will not change.
