    This plugin combines some often asked for features which are missing in jira. Additional configuration is simple and intuitive. A feature request was answered and released within a week. Thanks for that!

    Hi Miriam, thank you for the great feedback and a warm welcome as our customer :)

    Clean add-on with good UI that looks like it belongs. Mandatory fields on workflow transitions (including asterisk) are essential - this is an aptly named ad-on! initial impressions: support has been absolutely fantastic and above and beyond, no technical issues so far. This development team deserves greater community support. Would love to see conditional field visibility and conditional field mandatory (parent child logic) but please keep this a clean simple and excellent add-on like it presently is.

    Hi Lucian, thank you very much for this great feedback. This is motivating us so much. We really appreciate that. Regarding your idea, with conditional required fields we thought about it when you asked for it on the support. The challenge here is really to keep things simple and at the same time allow such a potentially complex feature. Lets see if we can come up with the "essential" sub-set of this in a future version... again thanks and have a great day. Lukas

    A good workflow extension and intelligent functions that really help. The handling of field functions in combination with sub-tasks have helped us to build our processes as workflows and to save the user a lot of work. A simple function convinced our users: The marking of mandatory fields in the workflow with asterisk. It is possible to create very complex workflows with a high automation level. Not only the existing rules are very helpful. Also the possibility of the post functions make the plug-in indispensable and offer a real added value against other workflow plugins. The setup of the function is clear and also the documentation understandable. We would like to especially mention the support: requests are processed within a very short time and solutions are found. The plugin is also constantly added by additional functions. A worthwhile investment.

    Whenever I create new workflows, Workflow Essentials provides lots of workflow functions that make our workflows better and I as an admin am missing in JIRA Core.  For example, when the user creates a subtask and did not specify a due date, we copy this value from the parent issue. An improvement could be, that the value is pre-populated in the create subtask-mask so that the user can see it instantly. I'm looking forward to it. ;)  Also it's very nice that the required field validator enables you to set mandatory fields on transition screens. A nice feature is that required fields a highlighted with a red asterisk just like globally required fields.  Nice!

    Any plans for this plugin to be available for Jira Cloud? I love this plugin but can't use it anymore.
    Was this review helpful?YesNo
    codecentric AG

    Hi Brian, thank you so much for your feedback! The Cloud APIs are still limited when it comes to Validators and Conditions and even Post Functions must be handled differently. We could build a version but it would be very different and limited and that's not what we aim for. We might evaluate this again in the future, especially when there might be new APIs available. We would appreciate if you send us a list with your most-wanted features to plugins@codecentric.de this would help us to prioritize.

    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?

    This app does not have a a Data Center approved version. Only apps meeting a set of performance requirements for large, clustered environments are approved for Data Center.

    However, while server apps are built for single-server deployments, many customers successfully install them in Data Center products. If you're using a Data Center product, Atlassian recommends you contact the vendor to determine compatibility at scale.

    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 does not have a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Server license if you decide to install this app in a Data Center product.

    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.
