    All your data, Displayed lightning fast

    Improved display performance!

    Index external content

    Future macro

    Cached content displays immediately so users do not have to wait for expensive rendering of complex macros or accessing external data like SQL queries. Reduces server load by avoiding excessive rendering requests.

    Cached content can optionally be added to the Confluence search index. This means that users can find material included from SQL queries or other external sources.

    The new Future macro renders the body in the background allowing the rest of the page content to display immediately. It is used to improve display performance when pages contain longer running macros. Watch the video!

    Can we get an extension on our trial? The PO seems to be held up somewhere as the full license is not in MyAtlassian.

    The CACHE plugin is a great companion to the SQL plugin. It can cache results, so that frequently-accessed data appears instantly! The configuration options are great, such as specifying cron-like timing for when the cache should be refreshed. For some examples of how we've used it at Atlassian, see: http://bit.ly/howto-report

    This macro makes it simple to speed up pages with slow-performing and often infrequently-updating macros. We use it all the time!

    Cache for Confluence improves performance for accessing dynamic data and works best with:

    Caches the rendered contents of the body of this macro. Useful when using macros that might be slow to render content, but where it does not really need to be dynamically generated for each and every request. Cache will be refreshed if the body of the macro changes or if there are attachment changes. The cache applies to all users that view the page. The cached content can optionally be indexed for Confluence search.

    New: The Future Macro renders the macro body in the background allowing the rest of the page content to display immediately. It is used to improve display performance when pages contain longer running rendering macros. This is an extension of an older, unsupported macro provided by Atlassian. Now fully supported and moving forward!

    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.
