    The ratings for this make no sense. First, price is fine. You're paying $40 per user - seems reasonable. But here are the issues... 1. I can't create a mockup page in one click the way I can with Gliffy. I have to edit a page, add a mockup, then edit the mockup (while in edit mode). Too painful. 2. Adding existing mockups (which we have tons) - I have to do the same as step 1, but then I have to import the XML by pasting it into a textbox. Ridiculous. 3. Its slow. Really slow. Coming from the desktop version I can't stand it. Our process remains the same: 1. Author using the desktop. 2. Export PNG 3. Dump PNG's into an attachments bucket on a mockups page. 4. Create pages and display single PNG's to capture discussions around mockups. I was hoping the authoring/updating experience would eliminate the need for the desktop version and solve the issues around versioning mockups. Hopefully they'll put some more work into this plugin (see Gliffy)

    Vendor response

    Hi Matthew, thanks for the review. A few answers:

    1. The new flow for creating a mockup (edit wiki page, insert mockup, save wiki page) is what Atlassian UI mandates starting on Confluence 5 (the Add menu is gone).

    2.Same as above, the flow for all plugins will become edit wiki page, select what you want to edit and hit edit.

    3.Regarding uploading existing Mockups built in Mockups for Desktop, I agree that having to export and import is a bit cumbersome. There's also another way http://support.balsamiq.com/customer/portal/articles/113837#moving-advanced but it's also not as smooth as it could be. We'll improve this aspect.

    4.Regarding the speed, what version of the plugin are you using, and what version of the Flash Player? The latest version of both make the plugin work pretty smoothly for us, though it won't be as fast as the Desktop version.

    For any issues, we're here: support@balsamiq.com

    This is a really handy tool, we use it all the time. And the best of it is the licensing - you only need to buy as many as you need for editing, viewing is free! This is much much better then eg. the stupid pricing with Gliffy (great tool to!) where you need as many licenses as you have Confluence Users. This kicks out most of the plugins with this stupid license model for us, as we have more than 100 times as many readers then editors. Atlassian listen! You have to change this!

    Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Yeah. This MAKES collaboration. I work in the Confluence, I build my Balsamiq Mockup WITHIN Confluence, I save in Confluence. Don't have to worry about uploading, grabbing the wrong file, where did I put that FILE? No, it's all there. And it's simple, powerful. And makes working together faster and funNER.

    Paid-via-vendor pricing FAQ

    What does 'paid-via-vendor' mean?

    Paid-via-vendor add-ons are licensed and purchased directly through the vendor who makes this add-on.

    Payment for paid-via-vendor add-ons is not handled by Atlassian.

    Will paid-via-vendor transactions be on my Atlassian invoice?

    Paid-via-vendor transactions are not managed by Atlassian. This means transactions for paid-via-vendor add-ons will not be on your Atlassian invoice.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does add-on pricing work?

    Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models for add-ons. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

    Server pricing:

    • Products and add-ons are hosted on your servers.
    • Licenses last forever and include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).
    • You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the original 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).

    Cloud pricing:

    • Products and add-ons are hosted by Atlassian.
    • You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.
    • Your subscription automatically renews every month. Annual pricing is also available.
    • Your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically upgraded (as necessary) when you add users to your instance.
    How do I determine my pricing tier?

    Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA Server license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

    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?

    Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

    Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

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

    Can I extend my free trial?

    You can extend your Server 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 Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    You cannot extend your Cloud free evaluation period. All Cloud add-ons are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation of period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the add-on.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA or Confluence license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence 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.
