The people who use this like it very much ...although their usage is sporadic. We are upgrading from 10 to 25 licenses. PLEASE be very wary of the Marketplace. I understand why you would wish to align yourself with Atlassian marketplace and perhaps that would make things less confusing. BUT we will not spend $6000 (site license) for at most 25 users to use this software. Pleasure ensure they will allow non-matching licenses before you go over. Yes I have sent an email to sales.

Sorry, the new license scheme is ridiculous. Why do I need to buy 100+ license for 3 users for my Jira instance? Plugin has been uninstalled, I will not upgrade. You have lost me. Ray

Vendor response

If you don't need the plugin for all of your JIRA users, you may buy it from us directly and purchase a small license. More info here:

We like the functionality, but didn't like the time it took to download the fonts each time we opened Balsamiq from within an issue. We decided to go with the Desktop version instead.

Be Agile

JIRA has already sped up your development considerably. Mockups allows anyone, technical or not, to jot down feature ideas quickly and easily. Add a UI Mockup to a new feature issue and improve the chances it will get built!

Improve QA/Dev Relations

Issues bounce back and forth because plain text is not enough to convey what's wrong. A screenshot helps, but sometimes what you really need is a new UI variation.

Questions about purchasing and licensing?

See the Balsamiq and Atlassian Marketplace FAQ.

Paid-via-vendor pricing FAQ

What does 'paid-via-vendor' mean?

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 do upgrades and renewals work?

You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

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 download 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.

What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

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

Subscriptions renew every month
Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
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.

Do you offer enterprise pricing?

Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

Can I extend my free trial?

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 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.

Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

What are legacy pricing tiers?

If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

  • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
  • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
  • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
