    We have used Confluence since 2005 and using it more for every day that goes. Currently we have close to 100 Site Spaces. So to start using the Archiving plugin has been challenging and especially for the old large Spaces. We love the outcome but especially the great support we have received from Midori, as we have had some issues when getting this new plugin running.

    The plugin has helped us recognize and manage out-of-date pages and thus led to an overall improvement in our wiki. And all that in an easy-to-deploy plugin with a comfortable interface to users. The support has also been awsome, with fast, expert answers, quick turnaround on fixes and responsiveness to new feature requests. Thanks Midori!

    I have been happy with the plugin functionality. It is going to greatly benefit our Confluence content. Working with the developers on questions and issues has been excellent as well. Fantastic customer service.

    Fantastic service! I reported an issue archiving a space with 2,588 pages with 57% out of date on SQL Server 2008. Ferenc at Midori re-engineered the code overnight(!) to handle the SQL Server limitation. Now that's a way to inspire customer loyalty!

    Wasn't this plugin free at one point? It's very useful but I note now looking at this site that its a paid plugin?

    Thanks for your time on writing the review!

    Yes, it was a free plugin, but we were simply unable to allocate resources to develop and maintain it as free anymore (especially keeping it uptodate with the increasingly frequent Confluence releases). We didn't want to give up on it, many users relied on it in production, so going commercial and sharing the development costs left the only option.

    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.
