    This looks like exactly what we need, but we're on JIRA Cloud, any word on compatibility with Cloud?

    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.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps 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 app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app 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?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. For JIRA Server 7.0 or later, the app tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA products 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 apps. For versions of JIRA Server prior to 7.0, the app tier should match the licensed user tier for JIRA. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your JIRA license, the two licenses should match exactly.Note: While this app has features specific to JIRA Service Desk, the app is technically available across the whole JIRA instance. Therefore the above guidelines for the license tier still apply.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps 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 apps, you can extend your app 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 app listing in UPM from your Atlassian host product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps 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 app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
