    We only use this for ease of copying projects and renaming accounts. Just like any free to paid move expect people to be mad. If you kept a free or very low fee version of the existing functionality no development just upkeep and then charged for an actively improved product at market prices I would be ok. The complete bait and switch though is off-putting, Nobody likes hostage situations. I am moving to 7.x.x and an 8k budget add went over like lead bricks here.

    Kevin, we looked into a number of options when we moved to the paid version and there were a number of key obstacles that stopped us from following your suggested path.

    1. Atlassian do not currently offer a "freemium" model for Add-ons in the marketplace.

    2. We are already forced into maintaining two branches in order to support JIRA 6.3/6.4 and JIRA 7.x, we would have had to maintain at least another two branches as a minimum in order to support a free/very-low-fee version as well.

    You should be able to go directly to the Atlassian Marketplace versions tab and manually download the latest free version (i.e 3.1.4).

    The direct link to download 3.1.4 is this: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/download/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner/version/1366

    Once you have this jar file, you can go to your JIRA Universal Plugin Manager (UPM) by going to JIRA Admin --> Manage Add-ons and find the "Upload Add-on" link. This will allow you to upload your locally downloaded 3.1.4 jar file.

    I hope that helps.

    Scriptrunner is a really great product. Using it we can extend the functionality of Jira with a huge extent and do a lots of things that would be impossible without this incredible piece of software. If anyone plans to use Jira companywide and takes processes seriously, this plug-in is a must.

    Hi, Great plugin - would be lost without it!! Have had many a problem solved by using groovy!! Could I ask what version of the plugin includes the behaviour plugin? Thanks, Eimear

    I'm pretty sure the Behaviours plugin was merged into ScriptRunner at version 3.0 onwards. So it depends more about which version of JIRA you are on to answer your question fully. You can look at the ScriptRunner version tab and compatibility notes to help you decide which one you want.

    i.e JIRA 6.3 or 6.4 --> ScriptRunner version 3.1.4 (this one is still free)

    or JIRA 7.x --> ScriptRunner version 4.2.x (this one is paid)

    Sad to see the new pricing structure. We only used a handful of functionality - and it makes a difficult business case to justify the license for our needs.

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for your review. As Product Manager for ScriptRunner I'd like to hear more.

    Perhaps you could contact me directly or let us know what functionality you are actually using via our Product Support portal: https://productsupport.adaptavist.com/servicedesk/customer/portal/2

    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.
