    A fine solution for those who have to grow complicated task trees within several seconds. The dev is quick to fix bugs and add features. I am happy and thankful ^__^

    Seemed to be a very useful plugin but soon after installing it brought our system to a grinding halt with OOME. Had to get Atlassian support to disable it. OK so maybe it was a coincidence the first time I installed it and our system cratered. Having been convinced that that was the case I gave it a 2nd try. As soon as I installed it (takes a long time for this plugin) and tried to edit a template our system ground to a halt and rebooted.

    Investigating, waiting on information from customer.

    UPDATE: After talking to the user they said they it occurred when they were trying to edit the a template. Cloud plugins have no code that runs on the JIRA instance, just in the web browser and on our servers. At the time of editing a template the users browser will ask for a list of field values (Issue Types, priorities etc), custom fields and a list of fields shown on the Create Issue screen. I can see no way that getting this information could possibly break JIRA but I have Atlassian to look into this anyway.

    UPDATE: I have copied the template that caused the problem to my own cloud environment and tried editing it there. Everything worked fine. The fact that this plugin has over 100 installs that have never caused this problem leads me to believe it is a problem with the JIRA instance, otherwise everyone would be having this problem

    UPDATE: There is a bug in JIRA (JRA-42282) that doesn't place limits on data retrieved when getting create screen information for all projects. If there are hundreds of projects and not enough memory then it will crash JIRA. Currently making a work around to stop this happening.

    UPDATE: Changed the plugin workaround the JIRA issue

    I am using this to create bulk sub-tasks and also bulk stories. This is great for site deployments where you have a set of tasks that need to be done per site. Instead of copy/clone, we use this template. The developer is also very quick to respond.

    Since JIRA Cloud has a small amount of plugins compared to the Server version, I wasn't able to find anything to help me create subtasks in bulk. We started using this plugin a few weeks ago so far it's been able to help us create subtasks in bulk. The developer has been quick to fix any small issues as well which is amazing! Things you can do with this plugin: SUBTASK TEMPLATES * Create a template list of subtasks. * Make a copy of the template, alter it and then save it for future use. * In the templates you can add summary, description, priority, due date * In the templates you can add dues dates that auto populate depending on when you actually create the subtasks. Example, the due date would be entered as 5d so when the subtasks are created the due date will be five days from now. * In the templates you can add a description for each subtask and it supports JIRA Text Formatting * You can have many different templates saved. OTHER FEATURES * Create a bulk list of subtasks under a parent issue type with a few clicks. * What's nice is you can have the subtasks inherit the summary of the parent task, plus you can add your own text to the subtask summary.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does cloud add-on pricing work?

    Cloud pricing is subscription based. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically adjusted (as necessary) based on the number of users in your instance.

    If you've opted for annual billing for your host product, add-ons are also billed annually. Annual subscriptions for this add-on include a discount (12 months for the price of 10).

    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 cloud pricing tier?

    The cloud add-on tier is set automatically based on the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on your instance. For example, if you have JIRA Software (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, your add-on tier is 50 users.

    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 cloud add-ons, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud add-ons are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the add-on.
