    Boris from Ops is not happy

    See who's contributed the most to each repository

    Like working in pairs? We can handle that

    He needs help with an issue in Production, but no one in Dev can ever seem to remember who is the expert on different parts of the software.

    "Who's the Expert?" analyses commits to your repositories to show who's been putting the most significant changes into the codebase. You'll see who's contributed the most in recent times and over the long term.

    "Who's the Expert?" is ready-to-go for pair-programming teams. It parses Git authors from paired commits and attributes them to the individual authors.

    More details

    Boris, from the Operations team, walks into the middle of the Dev area and says, quite loudly, and with a slight panic in his voice, "Who knows about the Customer Account Info service?"

    A couple of Devs prick up their ears nervously, then slide their eyes, almost undetectably, back toward their screens without making a sound.

    Poor Natasha, the new girl on the Dev team sitting in the probie seat next to the aisle, bears the full brunt of Boris' next question: "Could you please come and have a look at a Production issue?"

    Many Engineering teams regularly find themselves in this situation. Whether it be modesty, shame, or just sheer forgetfulness, it is often hard to find out who is the expert on a piece of software.

    The "Who's the Expert?" plugin solves this very problem. By analysing commits to a repository it can answer both the questions...

    "Who has contributed the most to this project over the past few years?"

    ... and ...

    "Who has made the most significant changes in recent months?"

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 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 host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on 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 tier?

    The add-on tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for add-ons. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on 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 add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons 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 add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

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