    I never thought announcing stuff would be so handful with this Add-on, we use Hipchat, Confluence, and Jira internally and I always find announcing some announcement inside Hipchat is pretty inefficient and not everyone will noticed it, after adding this one, I could create announcement with either simple HTML or markdown, everyone will be notified and I could even know who checked in, while I will be worry free if we have any miscommunication. Oh we are using Jira 7 and seems everything is fine ;)

    This a really useful plugin but in the last 2 months we had serious problems with it because it does perform HTTP redirects instead of injecting the messages into normal JIRA pages. Due to this we had problems broken integrations, now I did break jira 6.3, we bought it but it seems that in the last month we had to keep it disabled most of the time. Clearly it needs some refactoring to prevent these kind of accidents.

    Hi Sorin, We sincerely apologize for the issues you have had. We are actively refactoring the plugin to move away from redirects and deal differently with the need the redirects filled. We had done initial preparations for JIRA 6.3, but commit to releasing a fully compatible version, refactoring included, within 14 days of the JIRA 6.3 release (in just under two weeks).

    Is it possible to include an announcement in the create issue screen of a Project (top of the screen)? My use case is a helpdesk and I want to make announcements when users create tickets. Thanks!

    Has https://wittified.atlassian.net/browse/ANNOUNCE-74 been resolved yet? This would be critical finctionality that we would need - having announcements available on all create and update screens.

    Wittified Atlassian Add-ons (an Appfire company)

    Hi Stephen,

    Thank you for touching base with us on this request. While this functionality is not possible with Atlassian's current plugin points on the creation screens, we are looking into some possible alternative approaches. Unfortunately, I'm not able to give you an ETA on this request at this time.

    In the meantime, please feel free to vote for and follow ANNOUNCE-74 for future updates. And if you would like to reach out to me to discuss your needs further, we always welcome the opportunity to speak with customers directly. My contact info is below.

    We truly appreciate your feedback, Stephen, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Regards,

    Holly Wright, Marketing Director

    Pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. This app is sold as a perpetual license, and the purchase price includes 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your Atlassian product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. For Jira 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance. For example, if you're running Jira Software (500 users) and Jira Service Desk (25 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 500-user tier for apps. For versions of Jira prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for Jira. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Jira license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Can I install this app in a Data Center product?

    Yes, this app has a Data Center approved version. If you're using a Data Center product, you should install the Data Center version of the app.

    Learn more about Data Center approved apps

    What type of license do I need if I'm using this app in a Data Center product?

    Because this app has a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Data Center license for the app.

    If you already own a server license for this app, you can continue using the server license in your Data Center product for a limited period of time.

    Learn more about Data Center licensing

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for server apps?

    For server apps, academic licenses are available at a 50% discount if you have an academic license for your Atlassian product.

    Community and open-source licenses are available for server apps. Learn more about community and open source licenses.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.

    Learn more

    Pricing FAQ

    How does Data Center app pricing work?

    Data Center apps are sold as an annual subscription. You are eligible for support and version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my Data Center pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. For Jira 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed Jira products on your instance. For example, if you're running Jira Software (500 users) and Jira Service Desk (25 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 500-user tier for apps. For versions of Jira prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for Jira. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Jira license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Can I install this app in a Data Center product?

    Yes, this app has a Data Center approved version. If you're using a Data Center product, you should install the Data Center version of the app.

    Learn more about Data Center approved apps

    What type of license do I need if I'm using this app in a Data Center product?

    Because this app has a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Data Center license for the app.

    If you already own a server license for this app, you can continue using the server license in your Data Center product for a limited period of time.

    Learn more about Data Center licensing

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for Data Center apps?

    For Data Center apps, academic licenses are available at a 50% discount if you have an academic license for your Atlassian product.

    Community and open-source licenses are not available for Data Center apps. Learn more about community and open source licenses.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For Data Center apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian product, and you're all set.
