Permanent Backup License - Fallback License (KYL)
JetBrains switched to a subscription-based licensing model for some products on November 2, 2015. This new model allows our customers to purchase monthly and annual subscriptions for one or more products.
Renewing your subscription will keep your subscription active and allow you to continually install and use the latest versions of the products as they become available. Please note that our subscription-based licensing model provides a KYL.
You are eligible to receive KYL when you purchase a subscription for at least 365 days in a row. This license allows you to continue using the products you subscribed to indefinitely at no additional cost, if you decide not to renew your subscription. However, KYL will be limited to the version of the product that existed at the time of purchase or 12 months ago.
There is also an All Products Pack option available, giving our customers access to all of our desktop products (TGOs, utilities and extensions).
JetBrains team tools (including TeamCity, YouTrack, Hub, and Upsource) are covered by a regular perpetual licensing model.
