On February 2, 2021, more functionality will be included in Atlassian´s Data Center products. The following Atlassian-built apps and new functionality will be included with a Data Center subscription:
Jira Software Data Center: Advanced Roadmaps (formerly Portfolio for Jira)
Confluence Data Center: Team Calendars for Confluence, Analytics for Confluence
Jira Service Management Data Center: Insight – Asset Management, Insight Discovery
OK, that is nice but what does that mean to customers that has been using Insight with Jira Software and currently not using Jira Service Management? Will Insight – Asset Management and Insight Discovery work with Jira Software Data Center?
Below are some good answers provided by Atlassian:
Yes, but details will depend on a few factors:
- Version: What Jira Software Data Center version you’re on
- Date: Whether it’s before or after February 2, 2023
- License type: Whether you have a paid license for the app(s), or are using the free versions
- Products: Whether you have a subscription to Jira Service Management on the same instance as Jira Software Data Center
Scenario 1: You have a valid (paid) app license
If you’ve purchased a subscription for either of these apps and it expires after February 2, 2021 PT, you can continue to use the app(s) until the subscription expiry date, regardless of which Jira Software Data Center version you’re on.
Once the subscription expires, if you’re on Jira Software Data Center version 8.15 or higher, you’ll need a Data Center subscription to Jira Service Management on the same instance to use the apps with Jira Software Data Center. If you’re on Jira Software Data Center version 8.14 and below, you can switch to using the free version of the apps as described in scenario 2.
Scenario 2: You use the free app version
Jira Software Data Center customers on version 8.14 and below will not need a license for Jira Service Management to access the apps, and will be able to install a no-cost version of the apps from Marketplace as of February 2, 2021.
These apps will be available for two years, and will only receive critical updates. During that time, if you choose to upgrade to Jira Software Data Center version 8.15 or higher, you’ll need a license for Jira Service Management Data Center to get your users access to the Insight – Asset Management and Insight Discovery functionality.
After two years (February 2, 2023) we plan to remove these apps from our Marketplace, after which point you will need to have a subscription to Jira Service Management Data Center (or move to Jira Service Management Cloud Premium or Enterprise plans) as described in scenario 3.
Scenario 3: You have a subscription to Jira Service Management Data Center
If you have a subscription to Jira Service Management Data Center on the same instance as Jira Software Data Center, your Jira Software users can access the Insight Discovery and Insight – Asset Management functionality.
