Jira, from Atlassian, is an agile project management tool designed to help software development teams track and plan product releases and new software. It supports numerous agile methodologies, including Kanban boards and Scrum boards, which are popular workflow visualization tools to optimize the work process. In addition, Jira allows software teams to capture and organize their team’s issues, prioritize what’s important, and stay up-to-date with ongoing workflows.

In this post, we’ll discuss Jira’s pricing in more detail.

Does Jira offer a free plan?

Yes, Jira’s cloud-based solution has a free plan for teams of up to 10 users. It includes basic features, such as:

  • 2GB of file storage
  • Unlimited project boards
  • Backlog and basic road maps
  • Single-project automation
  • Reporting
  • Integration with third-party applications
  • Basic security features (e.g., password policies, encryption at rest/in transit, disaster recovery)
  • Community support

Does Jira offer a free trial?

For organizations with more than 10 users or that want advanced features, they can sign up for a seven-day free trial of either its Standard or Premium plan.

Companies that prefer to deploy Jira on their servers can sign up for a 30-day free trial.

Jira Software provides both an on-premise and cloud hosting version of its solution. The following are the pricing differences between each kind of deployment:

In addition to the free plan, there are three paid plans for larger teams.

  • 250 GB file storage space
  • User roles and permissions
  • Audit logs
  • Anonymous access

Unlike the other plan, the Enterprise plan requires annual payments. Its online calculator indicates that pricing starts at $134,000 per year for at least 801 users, so organizations with less than 800 users will have to contact the vendor for a price quote.

On-Premise (self-hosted)

Jira provides an annual Data Center licensing plan for companies that prefer to self host the solution. Pricing varies depending on the number of users, so a company with 500 users can pay about $42,000 per year, whereas a company with 50,000 users can pay about $840,000 per year. The on-premise version includes all of the features of the cloud version, plus disaster recovery, active-clustering and zero downtime upgrades.

Conclusion

Jira allows companies to either deploy the software in the cloud or onto their own server. Its cloud version includes a free plan for small teams, plus scalable paid plans for larger teams. Organizations can sign up for a free trial or contact Atlassian for more information.
