Specify sign-off rules as default of that customfield or as part of a workflow post function at a certain point of time depending on the issue's maturity level. A sign-off rule can be of complex nature.

I am very pleased with this useful plugin. It works exactly as advertised. Even better: the author has been extremely responsive to my questions; more than once he implemented and released changes in the code overnight to help address my concerns. Awesome service -- thank you, Frank!

Great add-on to support approval control in your JIRA workflow. Frank's responsiveness and support are excellent. I inquired about the possibility of adding a functionality enhancement for getUsersByProjectRole() to allow our end user project admins to dynamically control their project WF approvers via ldap group management... and in less than 1 week he sent me a proto-type version containing the new method! An official release followed shortly after and is now available via the marketplace... thank you Frank!

More details

Within Requirements-/Change-Management as well as Project-Management, high-level (business) requirements and cost-intensive tasks have to be signed off by a group of people being responsible for e.g. business product development, infrastructure and IT development rather than by a single person. In an agile world, the responsible persons may login and act online. Others have their representatives to do the work. In all cases, the decisions have to be documented and the final overall result must be traceable. Additionally, you can configure listeners for automatic triggering workflow transitions as soon as a final decision has been reached, immediately!

Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

How do upgrades and renewals work?

You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

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 download 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.

What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

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

Subscriptions renew every month
Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
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.

Do you offer enterprise pricing?

Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

Can I extend my free trial?

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 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.

Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

What are legacy pricing tiers?

If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

  • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
  • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
  • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
