    I don't know if I've reviewed this in the past, but I just wanted to express my gratitude towards this plugin. We have been using ScriptRunner and Behaviours for the past 6+ years, and would not be able to create our workflows without it. Even with the new paid pricing, the value obtained from using the plugin is well worth the cost. I highly recommend this plugin. Hopefully Atlassian provides a way to allow this to be installed in the Cloud so that those users can also experience the value this plugin provides. This is by far the most used plugin in our instance and will continue to be for a long time. Thanks for the great plugin!!

    Thanks for the feedback Adam. We have been working hard on a Cloud offering using the Atlassian Connect Framework and we're very close to something we can release. The functionality will only be a subset (and won't initially include Behaviours) of the server features but it is very much on its way.

    Scriptrunner has been hugely helpful in helping us build out functionality. We're finding it easier to automate workflows and we're now exploring customizing the UI. The support is incredibly helpful and responsive as well both through a direct ticket as well as the forums. Easily the most useful utility we have for JIRA.

    Hi Stuart,

    Thanks for the review. I'd love to hear more about your experience of customising the UI. The support team love to get messages like yours so I'll be sure to pass it on to the rest of the team.

    There are many good reviews here, not much I can add :) This is simply one of the most usefull and well writen plugins for JIRA ever. Script fields and listeners, thanks to great console allow to do pretty much anything a user might need. What is worth mentioning is the support - outstanding! Keep up the good work!

    Hi Loukia,

    We're working on ScriptRunner for JIRA Cloud and we're making great progress. I'd say we're weeks away now (as opposed to months).

    Perhaps you can email scriptrunner@adaptavist.com and let me know what features you are particular looking for and I can add you to my email distribution list for further news on progress?

    Great product, but very disappointed about the new pricing plan... to go from free to $1200 for 500 users??

    Hi Shaun,

    Thanks for the feedback. Our investment in the ScriptRunner family and particularly ScriptRunner for JIRA will continue over the coming months and years. We've already added ScriptRunner for Bitbucket Server and we'll have a brand new product next month. We've just released our latest new feature which allows you to customise JIRA even further:


    Perhaps you could email scriptrunner@adaptavist.com as I'd be happy to chat with you directly and hear more about your thoughts on our pricing.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons 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 add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on 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 tier?

    For JIRA Server 7.0 or later, the add-on tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications 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 add-ons.

    For versions of JIRA Server prior to 7.0, the add-on tier should match the licensed user tier for JIRA. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your JIRA license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, 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 Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons 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 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.
