    Split one issue into multiple issues

    Split one issue into multiple issues

    Select Split Strategy

    Sometime you just need to create many from one..

    Apply Fields & Customfields

    Create many issues from:

    - selected comments or

    - description (text selections will be base of the new issues)

    It is very common to add comments which should be, in fact, separated issues.

    You can split issue and apply some fields into new issues:

    * attachments

    * description

    * labels

    * reporter

    * assignee (issue will be assigned to current user)

    * and any customfields!

    More details

    Each Issue should reflect one task to do, otherwise managing tasks will not be effective. However it is very common to put new ideas or significant update on the same issue as a new comment. In fact, they should be tracked separately. To avoid creating new issues by copy and past you can automate this with Split Issue.

    Basic features including:

    • Creating issues from comments or description

    • Apply fields or any customfields to created issues

    ○ reporter

    ○ assignee

    ○ description

    ○ attachments

    ○ labels

    ○ comments

    Seems to work fine, but price is too high for this little funcation. If you would implement to split description into different issues in addition to comments, this would help if somebody creates a task with several tasks in the description and you want to split the tasks from the description...

    Hi, I've added split description in version 1.1 - many thanks for this suggestion. I hope it works as expected. Email me at contact@plugins4people.atlassian.net to get a discount. Thanks!

    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.
