Crowd Server and Data Center feature comparison

If you use Atlassian Crowd for managing users, you'll have either a Crowd Server or Crowd Data Center license. 

Your Crowd license determines which features and infrastructure choices are available. We want all teams to get the most out of Crowd, so all the core features related to creating and managing users are available for everyone.  

Important changes to our server and Data Center products

We’ve ended sales for new server licenses, and will end support for server on February 2, 2024. We’re continuing our investment in Data Center with several key improvements. Learn what this means for you
