    I have used Balsamiq for a while and liked the product, however they recently updated the product so that it now checks the maintenance license status on Confluence Cloud so I now get EULA warnings on all my mockups. I was never informed that I HAD TO purchase maintenance in order to keep using the product. When you purchase a product you expect to be able to use that product as long as you want. Worse, when I went to see about updating my license they want me to purchase 2 years of maintenance at once because the previous one expired almost a year ago. So I have to basically purchase the product again in order to use it properly. This is an insane amount of money for something I use a couple of times a year. Google charges me $50 for a year of service for a product that I use everyday. Balsamiq wants $150 minimum (3 users) for a product that I use several times per year. Won't be going back.

    Hi Christian, as we discussed in email I'm so sorry you are disappointed in us. We certainly didn't intend to mislead you on what you were purchasing. Other Atlassian Cloud plugins have an ongoing month cost, rather than annual maintenance, and we know with that, along with other factors, it can be confusing. We're working at making purchasing clearer. In the meantime for other users with maintenance questions, here are details on how maintenance for our products currently works: http://support.balsamiq.com/customer/portal/articles/1485219#after. We're so glad you reached out to us by email. We're here to help and find solutions when we can at sales@balsamiq.com. I hope the what we were able to do works for your team. -Natalie

    I use basalmiq a lot, and without the project and archive capabilities inside the plugin, it makes it hard to make the tool useful for a whole project. We are going to use Balsamiq externally. Unfortunately, the way Balsamiq is deployed you can't link out to a mockup. :{

    Hi Edward! Are you using myBalsamiq our web application? http://balsamiq.com/products/mockups/mybalsamiq We don't have a specific integration between Confluence or JIRA and myBalsamiq, however you can add links in Confluence pages or JIRA issues to your myBalsamiq mockups. Here are details about inserting images of your mockups into Confluence or JIRA from myBalsamiq: http://support.balsamiq.com/customer/portal/articles/1878451 Perhaps this will help? If not, feel free to write us directly sales@balsamiq.com -Natalie

    we paid for balsamiq license and now we are getting a EULA error message and asking us to upgrade our license. Why would we want to upgrade our license if our current license satisfies our need. We have an unlimited license for confluence.

    Vendor response

    Hi Kranti! I think we've sorted this out via email, but do let us know us know if you still have questions. We are here to help. There was a bug that accidentally gave you free maintenance for about 3 to 4 years. Yay! But when we fixed the bug, it definitely looked surprising. So sorry about that ugly EULA warning suddenly appearing! The good news, there is definitely no reason for you to pay for the free bonus maintenance time. Please let us know by email sales@balsamiq.com if you still have concerns or confusion about your license and your options. -Natalie

    Nice add on but it's too darn expensive.

    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.
