    Take online decisions by varies group members or their representatives in parallel

    Decide as group member or representative

    Dynamic & complex rules

    Transparency of all decisions

    Instead of using several sub-issues per business issue or epic to decide in parallel, use this solution for steering committees, product boards etc. Additionally, you can specify various representatives!

    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.

    Transparency of the final decision as well as an overview of all individual decisions: everybody viewing an issue see the result of a decision immediately as well as who decided what and when.

    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!

    In case of a support request, please write an email at group-sign-off@polscheit.de in order to get an account automatically and create an issue within my JIRA for Group Sign-off based on that email.

    The support of Frank is amazing. We've been using this plugin for just over two years now and if we fine a fault or issue, Frank has worked extremely quickly to get it resolved. He also provides great support about how to get the best out of the plugin. We use the roles and custom fields rather than people to maintain complex approvals and this just works.

    We were looking for a way to integrate an approval process into a few of our existing workflows. The Group Sign-off plugin is exactly what we needed. During deployment of this plugin, I encountered a few issues. Frank (plugin developer) was able to assist me in resolving these issues and we are up and running. I recommend this plugin.

    Great vendor support for this plugin. We had issues with an older version of the plugin, and the vendor was very responsive in fixing the issues and putting out a new version promptly. This plugin helps us enforce our workflow process for signing off on issues before they can be considered fixed/closed.

    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?

    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?

    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.
