Workflow functions for creating issues and subtasks

Set issue fields using issue values and variables

Conditions to control create

Create multiple issues or subtasks

Substitution variables available from issue being transitioned or it's parent. Also allows you to set labels, add links, set watchers, copy attachments, and add a comment.

Regex pattern matching and JQL query information can be used to decide whether issue should be created or not based on issue field values.

For example, creating a subtask for each user in a list or for each component. JQL based conditioning allows prevention of duplicate issue creation when transition is done a second time.

If I have two JIRA instance: I have to buy two licenses?
Was this review helpful?YesNo

Vendor response

Thanks for the rating. Yes, a license is required for each production instance. This is standard for all Atlassian paid plugins. A development/test instance license is included with a production license and can be found on your account.

We'd love to use this plugin - any plans to make it available for OnDemand users?

Great plugin. Please continue developing it. We live by this plugin! Will this plugin support post functions for regular "task" types rather than just subtask types?
Was this review helpful?YesNo

Vendor response

Thanks! Yes, development will continue, it is a popular plugin. Version 3.2 and above allow creation of both issues and subtasks!

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.
