    Hello, I like this add-on but every time I add a template to the SE Comments field, all the formatting disappears (merged cells, table borders, cell background colors) which sort of defeats the purpose. Can you tell me how to fix this issue? Thanks!

    thank you for reporting this bug.

    The fix is deployed

    This add-on is a must have for Service Desk projects mitigating having the write wiki markup with a well integrated GUI. Also the developer is extremely fast as supporting business requirements and releasing new features. Try this add-on! :)

    Finally, the ability to create tables in JIRA in a simple way. And quite easy copy-paste from the Word or a Web Page with the styling preserved. And the add-on integrates well into the Service Desk, too! There was a minor bug though with the markup correction, but the developer fixed this issue within the promised deadline.

    2 weeks from a feature request to its release - quite a good pace, especially for such complex features as configurable predefined text snippets, which can be inserted into either description or comments. Looking forward to the coming updates, keep up delivering value!

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does cloud add-on pricing work?

    Cloud pricing is subscription based. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically adjusted (as necessary) based on the number of users in your instance.

    If you've opted for annual billing for your host product, add-ons are also billed annually. Annual subscriptions for this add-on include a discount (12 months for the price of 10).

    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 cloud pricing tier?

    The cloud add-on tier is set automatically based on the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on your instance. For example, if you have JIRA Software (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, your add-on tier is 50 users.

    Note: While this add-on has features specific to JIRA Service Desk, the add-on 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 add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For cloud add-ons, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud add-ons are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the add-on.

    Lizard Brain UG is an vendor, committed to providing support for their add-ons at least 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
