With the latest version (1.2.0), this plug-in is excellent. Blazing fast search (even with complex Lucene queries), supports many attachment formats, excellent support, and all that for a very fair price. In short, anyone who uses attachments (and who doesn't?) must get this plug-in.

Fastest plugin I've ever purchased. Read the description and bam, I installed it on our server. Just what I needed with a reasonable price.

We are really glad you like it :).

A good idea to search for attachments. Why isn't this part of the JIRA core? This search plugin works good, but why isn't there a userfriendly GUI (filter addon etc.)? If I want to search for a attachment name, I must use the advanced search and type a cryptic search query like "issue in havingAttachments("name:Test%20Attachment%20Disclosure%20Report%20FDS.pdf") where I have to escape the spaces! No "normal" user wants to create such a complicated query to look for an attachment. Isn't there a way to improve this?

Vendor response

Hello, Thanks for your review and hints how to improve our addon :) For replacing advanced search with simple one - we've logged a feature request for that! Here would be the sample usage: instead of writing query issue in havingAttachment("your attachment query") You will be write a simpler one attachments = "your attachment query" For escaping the spaces we will log another issue and will look at it!

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.
