    It's 2017 and we have CQL in Confluence since a while. I'd like to see the skills finder merged into the system search page in Confluence. Skills would be a content type and all dimensions (locations, departments, skills...) would be available CQL dimensions. Furthermore most of the Skill Finder UI still looks a bit un-confluency... We are interested in adding some reputation based comeptence features to our Confluence instance and we would be interested in knowing more about where you want to move this plugin to in the next 1..2 years. Thanks.

    Hello, This is a very good idea, and an interesting plug-in, but it is buggy. I gave it a rating of "2 stars" because of the bugs, making it almost impossible to roll-out in a production environment. However, without the bugs, it would be a "4 stars", because it is a much needed feature within Confluence. Is this plug-in still supported ? I created a ticket on the Luxoft portal, and nothing. All other opened tickets have not been updated since April 20, 2 months ago. Please advise. Regards, Christian Brien

    Hi, Christian,

    Thank you for your interest towards our plugin.Sorry for delay, we had major internal release.

    Now we started work on ticket you reported, will update timely.

    Hi, I find the plugin overall useful. However, it has some limitations: (1 - UPD: fixed) external support process is weak as JIRA isn't accessible for adding issues; (2 - UPD: have created a feature request) a specific person' skills macro could be useful but there's no such macro yet; (3) skills are not searchable via unified Confluence' search. Would rate as 4* when this would be fixed.

    Hi, Evgeny. Thank you for the feedback.

    (1) We fixed our feedback process, now customers may add issues by the link: https://luxoft.atlassian.net/secure/Dashboard.jspa

    (2) Currently specific peron's skills may be found in a personal profile. On the other hand, macros is available which shows skills for persons, changing in time. Please share a case with us to show a single user's skills by macros.

    (3) That's a great case and we added it in the backlog

    Works fine w/ v5.8.5 but there is a glitch with avatars displaying in found results and user-endorse macro. They are too large to fit the space. Does not look pretty. Hope it will be fixed soon, please.

    Hi, Karel! Thank you for your feedback. Please check our upgraded version of add-on: there is a lot of improvements.

    Regarding glitch with avatars you mention: we are displaying the avatar pics provided by Confluence as is. Does this glitch appear only inside of Skill Finder? Could you please share with us a screenshot to our e-mail: atlassian@luxoft.com We’ll be glad to investigate the issue and help.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

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

    If app 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?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. The app tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host product. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for apps. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your host product license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps 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?

    For server apps, you can extend your app 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 app listing in UPM from your Atlassian host product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps 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 app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
