Jira Trial Version vs. Full Version: Which is Right for Your Business?
If you are considering using Jira for your business, you may be wondering whether to start with the trial version or jump straight into the full version. Both options have their pros and cons, so it’s important to understand the differences and choose the one that best suits your needs. In this article, we will compare the Jira trial version and the full version to help you make an informed decision.
What is Jira Trial Version?
The Jira trial version is a free, time-limited version of Atlassian’s popular project management software. It allows businesses to experience the features and functionality of Jira without making a financial commitment upfront. The trial period typically lasts for 7 days, during which users can explore various aspects of Jira and assess its suitability for their organization.
During the trial period, businesses can create projects, invite team members, assign tasks, track progress, and utilize other core features of Jira. This gives them a hands-on experience of how Jira works and its potential benefits for their specific workflow.
Benefits of Using Jira Trial Version
One major advantage of using the Jira trial version is that it allows businesses to evaluate whether the software meets their requirements before making a financial investment. By exploring different features and functionalities during the trial period, organizations can gain insights into how well Jira aligns with their project management needs.
Moreover, using the trial version enables businesses to identify any potential challenges or limitations they may encounter while using Jira in their day-to-day operations. This helps in making an informed decision about whether to proceed with purchasing the full version or consider alternative solutions.
What is Jira Full Version?
The full version of Jira offers all the features and capabilities that Atlassian has developed for this robust project management tool. It comes with advanced functionalities such as customizable workflows, automation, reporting, integrations, and more. The full version is available as a subscription-based service, with pricing plans based on the number of users and additional add-ons required.
With the full version of Jira, businesses have access to ongoing support from Atlassian and can take advantage of regular updates and new features that enhance their project management experience. It provides a comprehensive solution for teams of all sizes to effectively manage projects, collaborate, track progress, and deliver high-quality results.
Benefits of Using Jira Full Version
Opting for the Jira full version offers several benefits for businesses looking to streamline their project management processes. Firstly, it provides access to a wide range of advanced features that can be customized to match specific requirements. This flexibility allows organizations to tailor Jira according to their unique workflows and business needs.
Additionally, the full version offers seamless integration with other popular tools such as Confluence, Bitbucket, and Trello. This integration enhances collaboration across different teams and enables smoother communication between stakeholders.
Moreover, investing in the full version means gaining continuous support from Atlassian’s dedicated customer service team. They are available to address any technical issues or queries that may arise during your usage of Jira.
Deciding whether to start with the Jira trial version or go directly for the full version depends on your business’s specific needs and budget constraints. The trial version offers an excellent opportunity to explore Jira’s functionalities before committing financially. On the other hand, the full version provides access to advanced features and ongoing support.
Evaluate your requirements carefully and consider taking advantage of the trial period offered by Atlassian before making a final decision. Remember that both options offer value; it ultimately comes down to what works best for your organization’s project management needs.

Configure required connections and upstream ports
Allow outgoing connections from your network, and add an HTTP connector and upstream port to make sure your self-managed instance can connect to the tunnel.
Allow outgoing connections from your network
Allow outgoing connections on port 443:
To tunnel endpoint
When creating the tunnel, your self-managed instance needs to reach https://tunnel.services.atlassian.com , which is the tunnel endpoint on the cloud side.
You can verify that it does by running curl https://tunnel.services.atlassian.com/status -I . The request should return an error, which is the correct behavior.
To cloud products
When authorizing the application links as the last step of the procedure, your self-managed instance needs to reach your cloud products directly. The outgoing communication is not using the tunnel.
You don’t have to allow any incoming connections to your network or IP ranges.
Add an HTTP connector and upstream port
Stop your instance and then complete the following steps:
In your installation directory, edit the conf/server.xml file.
Add one of the following connectors. Use a port number that isn't already used by any application on this instance.
Add the following snippet to JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS in setenv.sh . Specify the same port number you used for the HTTP connector above:
Add the following connector. Use a port number that isn't already used by any application on this instance.
Add the following snippet to CATALINA_OPTS in setenv.sh . Specify the same port number you used for the HTTP connector above:
In your Bitbucket home directory, go to shared , and edit the bitbucket.properties file.
Add a connector and upstream port. Use a port number that isn't already used by any application on this instance.
Optional: Restrict access to the HTTP connector to localhost
Available for Jira and Confluence.
To improve security, you can restrict access to the newly created connector. In the following example, we’re allowing the localhost address (needed for application tunnels) to access all ports, and limit any outside access to port 8080, which is our publicly available port.
To restrict access to the connector:
Add the following snippet within the <Engine> section. Make sure to adjust the port number (8080) to your publicly accessible port:
Remove HTTPS redirection from the web.xml file
If you enabled SSL for your instance, you might have used the following snippet to redirect traffic to HTTPS. Since the new connector is using HTTP, you need to remove this snippet so the traffic isn't redirected. Any traffic that passes through the tunnel will still be encrypted, but if some traffic is trying to reach your regular port on HTTP, it will no longer be redirected.
Before you start
If you rely on Apache Tomcat to handle the HTTPS redirection through the web.xml file, it will no longer work. If you still need the redirection, you’ll need to configure it by using another component, such as reverse proxy or load balancer. For an example on how to configure it, see Securing your Atlassian applications .
Jira, Confluence, Bamboo
To remove the HTTPS redirection:
In your installation directory, edit the conf/web.xml file.
Remove the following snippet:
Start your instance.
In your Bitbucket home directory, edit the bitbucket.properties file.
Remove the server.require-ssl property.
Go to Create an application tunnel to your self-managed instance .
