What type of license do i need to start developing an app for Jira datacenter ?

Is a trial license enought for app development ?

Do i need to have access to Jira source code to be able to developp apps or just jira java api is enought to do the job ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi @MaxwelNas,

If you do your server development using Atlassian Maven Plugin, see https://developer.atlassian.com/server/framework/atlassian-sdk/working-with-maven/ then when you start Jira with atlas-debug then a development licence is generated on the fly for you.

If you already have a Jira licence, you can also get a development licence that matches your production licence, see Get a developer license for Jira Server | Jira | Atlassian Documentation

Finally, you don’t need Jira source to do development, the APIs are documented and the libraries are all in the Atlassian maven repo.

I suggest you start with the Atlassian Plugin SDK here Set up the Atlassian Plugin SDK and build a project

James.
