    Workflow conditions, validators and post-functions that you can use to implement custom workflows in JIRA

    Workflow Conditions

    Workflow Validators

    Workflow Post-Functions

    Disable (hide) a transition based on the previous status or the actors of an issue, or simply unconditionally hide a transition that is only used indirectly (e.g. through a post-function).

    Enforce custom rules on the data that must be input during a transition, such as requiring that a field is modified, that a comment is provided, or that a multi-select field has a single value.

    Assign an issue to a role member, set a field to a constant value or Groovy expression, copy field values to/from the parent issue or linked issues, and much more.

    Please let us know if this plugin can achieve the below requirement, "Hi, I have a JIRA System Admin, who should be able to create JIRA Admins. Due to our specific project need, which is beyond my control, the JIRA Admins must be able to just create\delete user details but not modify them. Specifically we do not want the admins to change the username of the users. Please let us know if the plugin can achieve this functionality."

    Can this be upgraded to the latest version? We have a strong requirement for Transition Linked Issues (new in 3.1.1)

    Vendor response

    I assume you are talking about our plugin for JIRA Cloud (formerly JIRA OnDemand)? Unfortunately, we have been discussing upgrading JMWE on JIRA Cloud with Atlassian for more than a year now, and it is moving forward slowly. It should be happening early next year (cross fingers). Note however that JMWE became non-free starting with version 3.0.0, so the new version of the plugin on JIRA Cloud will also become non-free.
    by Stephen Etheridge on 2014-10-28
    This is frankly annoying. JIRA hasn't got 10% cheaper but this plugin, which is extremely embedded in certain organisations' workflows, has suddenly made JIRA 10% more expensive. This feels like a price gouge from Atlassian, which is disappointing not only for the financial hit but because it hurts my image of the company itself. It would be great to have some more transparency here, maybe that would restore my faith in the direction of the Atlassian brand (more pro-development, less profit-led). How many people make use of this plugin and does that justify the motivation to make it an 'optional' cost for licensees? What proportion of development time is spent on updating and maintaining this plugin versus 'core' development, and does that justify the 10% price tag? At the moment it looks and feels like a price gouge, and that it saddening from, a company I have grown to really trust. *** Response to Vendor *** - Yes, I agree this functionality should come as standard with JIRA. It's incredibly useful to be able to: * Force a comment when transitioning an issue through the workflow * Force a changelog reference/version number when resolving an issue * Force an estimate before beginning work on an issue * Force a specific Resolution as the result of a test, review (or other) process, without necessarily closing the issue - No, I didn't realise this was not a 1st-party Plugin. The reason I didn't realise this is because the tools I have hitherto been using for free for years are still visible and selectable as options within the workflow WITHOUT the plugin installed. Only when I try to use one of these functions does some red text come up stating I haven't got the plugin installed. The way this is currently implemented, Atlassian are basically 'selling in' the Plugin insofaras it is so heavily endorsed there is an implication that it is 1st-party (or obfuscation of the contrary). There is no mention of Innovalog in the dialog. - Yes, my score is based on my frustration with Atlassian for embedding what is essentially a 3rd-party plugin so deeply into their software without regard for the implications of failing to ensure it is supported it in new versions. I think you can see this frustration throughout the scores and comments here and I would implore you to direct Atlassian this way so they can see for themselves the annoyance this is causing their customers. For what it's worth, I would prefer if they purchased the plugin from you and take on its maintenance or remove all traces of it from the visible default functionality of JIRA to avoid confusion and frustration. I think you've made and supported a good plugin. I think you deserve getting money for your efforts, but the approach for implying the functionality is there and then flagging up a pay wall in red text when you try to enable it is deceptive and wrong on Atlassian's part.

    Vendor response

    Stephen, I believe you don't realize that the JMWE plugin is in no way related to Atlassian. It has been developed, maintained and supported since 2008 by me, initially as a free plugin, and when JIRA 6 was released, the API changes were so significant that I was faced with two choices: either drop the plugin, or compensate the migration efforts by making it paid-via-Atlassian. I chose the latter, and the plugin became non-free on May 29, 2013, starting with version 3.0.0 (the previous versions remain free). I understand that you feel the features of my plugin should instead come standard with JIRA. This is an understandable comment, but it should be directed at Atlassian instead of Innovalog. I also have a question for you: is your star rating based on your frustration with Atlassian, or on the quality and usefulness of my plugin? Cheers, David. P.S. : don't hesitate to contact my at atlassian@innovalog.com

    Free add-on FAQ

    Good news! This add-on is free.

    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.
