    Add watches automatically

    With Smartwatch, you can decide yourself for each issue what changes you want to be notified about: all changes, only changes in description and comments, status changes or perhaps just when its ready.

    Smart Watch comes with a set of predefined rules covering the most common cases. Administartors can modify those or add their own rules to adjust to your workflow and Jira setup.

    You can define watches to be added when you create an issue, update it or when it is assigned to you.

    You can also define autowatch for projects and issue types so that watches will be created for you automatically.

    More details

    Smartwatch for Jira helps you select what changes to issues you want to get notified about. Instead of getting an email notification for every change, you can select what changes you are interested in.

    The rules used by Smartwatch for Jira can easily be adjusted to your own workflow and Jira setup. Notifications can also be used for users not working actively with the issue, but interested in getting a notification when it is complete.

    Smartwatch also makes it possible to set up autowatch based on project and issue types so that you will automatically watch for example Bugs in projects you are responsible for. Autowatches are based on smartwatch rules, so will not drown in email, but get emails only for changes you are interested in.

    Smartwatch supports three types of watchers:

    • Jira users
    • Jira groups
    • email addresses

    Groups and email watchers are enabled or disabled in plugin setup.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Group and email watchers


    Watchers can now be not only Jira users but also Jira Groups or any email address. As before each watcher has a rule that says what changes are of interest, so you can have group or email watchers that are notified not of all changes, but only for a subset, like when the issue is ready or when status changes.
