    We use this plugin for 2 purposes: 1) to populate drop down lists in one issue type with referenced data created in several other issue types & 2) to create an inter-dependency of 5 select lists (a type of cascading select list with 5 levels). We had a couple of issues with the plugin when we first acquired it, but Valiantys' support is beyond excellent. Now, the current release ( for Jira 4.4.4) is great. We were able to move out of ClearQuest (and its exorbitant licensing fees) and into Jira because of this plugin.

    We used nFeed to connect to external reference tables and most importantly to reduce the number of Jira projects. Instead of creating a new Jira project for every small initiative we have a reference attribute called work package that references our internal project management application. As plug-in nFeed has the most features and very good support. Highly recommended.

    We have found nFeed to be extraordinarily useful in multiple use cases. We use it with Jira Service Desk to get the Reporter's phone, location, department, and manager which helps drive queues and SLAs. We use it in our Product defect creation workflow to distinguish defects created by Customer Services Reps (customer reported defects) from QA or other sources. Soon we will use it to look up Accounts in SalesForce to associate Jira issues with SalesForce Cases. Setup is fairly easy and in the cases where we have found issues, the support team has been quick to respond and -when needed- expedite an update to address our issue. I would highly recommend nFeed to enhance your Jira user's productivity and the richness of the data on your Jira issues.

    The nFeed-plugin enables us to integrate both our own and our customers' data into Jira. We use 3-level cascading select, which is expanded to 9 levels in the current version. In addition to cascading select, we use type-ahead fields and ordinary select-fields. All field-types use data from an external database as data-source. The type-ahead handles a large number of records and enables the user to search for any word in the text defined by the query in nFeed config. We are looking forward to using the new improved formatting options available from nFeed for Jira 6.x. As we do a lot of server-side integration, we are also excited about the possibility of getting the displayed value through a supported REST API. With nFeed we have found the missing piece of the Jira puzzle.

    We find nFeed very useful for populating drop downs with data that's managed elsewhere. It's handy that it deals with lists that constantly change, with both additions and subtractions. A good basic time saver that just works.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does add-on pricing work?

    Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models for add-ons. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

    Server pricing:

    • Products and add-ons are hosted on your servers.
    • Licenses last forever and include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).
    • You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the original 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).

    Cloud pricing:

    • Products and add-ons are hosted by Atlassian.
    • You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.
    • Your subscription automatically renews every month. Annual pricing is also available.
    • Your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically upgraded (as necessary) when you add users to your instance.
    How do I determine my pricing tier?

    Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA Server license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

    Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

    Add-ons 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?

    You can extend your Server 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 Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

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

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA or Confluence license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence 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.
