If you already have a developer license, you can add it under the Administration > License Details page. You can also create a new key as described below.

Getting a Developer License

Only a technical contact for your commercial/academic license is able to create a Developer license.

Atlassian supplies "developer" licenses that can be used by existing commercial license holders who wish to deploy non-production installations of our software to use in QA/staging environments. Developer licenses are free-of-charge to commercial license holders and, like our commercial offerings, they include 12 months of updates starting from the purchase date of the commercial license.

If you hold a commercial license, you can obtain a free developer license by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your Atlassian account.
  2. Under the "Licenses" heading, all of your licenses will be displayed. Click the plus sign next to a JIRA license to view its details.
  3. Click the 'View Developer License' link in the bottom right corner of the license detail panel, below your commercial license key.
Your new developer license will be generated and displayed in a popup window. Repeat this process as many times as necessary for multiple developer licenses. If you are unable to create the license, contact our sales department for help.

* Atlassian Starter, Community and Open Licenses do not include free Developer Licenses.  If you need a development environment for your Starter License please purchase an additional Starter License.  Community and Open source license holders please contact sales@atlassian.com if you need a license for your development environments.
