    Hi, I like this add-on a lot, the only option i think is missing right now is the ability to NOT search CLOSED/RESOLVED issues as an option, apart fmor that it's great.

    Great plugin, but it has been causing our JSD portal to go blank so we have it disabled for the moment. The Jira project for the add-on does not allow me to submit a bug, so here we are.
    Was this review helpful?YesNo

    Update: Please could test 1.13.2 version released today. We have tested on several version of JIRA SD including JIRA 6 and service desk add-on.


    We had though this is fixed in the previous version. But it seems there are other situations causing this issue and not happening in our test environment. We have started to work on it. Sorry for the problem you have faced. You should be able to open isues on our issue tracker, https://denizoguz.atlassian.net/projects/SIF. I will inform you here anyway. Thanks for letting us know the problem, it is a really critical one.

    Agreed this is an excellent value, and I am thankful to the author for creating it. With the added support for searching across 1 or more custom fields, this is a must have. Looking forward to even greedier matching (wildcards) and possibly display of context of matching terms, who knows what else. Call it Universal Search! Well done!

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps 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 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 host product. For JIRA Server 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 (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for apps. For versions of JIRA Server 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.Note: While this app has features specific to JIRA Service Desk, the app is technically available across the whole JIRA instance. Therefore the above guidelines for the license tier still apply.

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

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps 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?

    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 host 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.
