    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?

    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!

    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.

    We'd love to try this -- although it really should be part of the core product -- but we're on a hosted JIRA, sorry that you don't want our money.

    We really, really want Your money. Please - make the request to the Atlassian Team to approve the add-on to be part of a JIRA OnDemand. 

    We would love to have our addon being part of hosted JIRA, but this decision is upon Atlassian Team to be taken :).

    It would be great if you could change the rating - as like I described, this is not something we can do on our own.

    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.

    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 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).

    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.

    Price changes

    • 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 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.
