In May 2022, Atlassian Marketplace celebrated its tenth anniversary. This is a great opportunity to take a look at the possibilities this platform offers.
The Atlassian store is constantly expanding. Every month, it offers more and more solutions that extend the functionality of the tools and allow them to be tailored to the needs of the user or company. This is evidenced, for example, by the number of available extensions, which has grown from 60 (on the day the Marketplace opened) to more than 5,300 available today.
The add-ons (also known as plugins) are used to extend Atlassian systems such as JIRA, JIRA Service Management, or Confluence. Their wide range of categories allows for a comprehensive configuration of the end environment.
The producer’s systems have a built-in plugin management module. It is connected online to the Atlassian Marketplace, so its offerings are always up-to-date and available to every user.
What can you find on the Atlassian Marketplace platform?
The extension store offers support from various teams. Not only programmers can improve a system with its help. The solutions available in the Atlassian Marketplace offer tools for development, marketing, design, human resources, finance, and many, many other teams. In addition to the plugins themselves, this space helps you find relevant data about them.
What can you find on the platform?
1. Complete information about each add-on
- add-on version – if a higher version of the add-on is released, information about a possible update is displayed,
- license details – including their quantity and expiration date,
- producer information – containing full documentation of the add-on,
- information on the security of the processed data,
- contact to the producer.

2. Plugin search
Atlassian tools offer exceptional functionality. They are designed for maximum ease of use. The same is true for the Atlassian Marketplace. The platform is equipped with filtering options to find the right add-ons by specifying their features and tasks to be performed.
The available filters allow you to quickly find the information you need. The selection criteria are the following:
- popularity of the add-on,
- categories, for example: administrator tools, project management tools, reports, working time, workflows,
- add-on cost, paid or free version.
Some partners offer a free version of their extensions. However, most of them are paid. The price depends on the number of installed licenses. Please note that the producer allows you to download a trial version to test the functionality of the add-on.

The producer anticipated the users’ need for more advanced filtering. This is why the store also gives you the ability to search for add-ons by:
- compatible Atlassian products, for example: JIRA, JIRA Service Management, Confluence, Bitbucket, Bamboo, and many others,
- user’s hosting types, i.e.: Cloud, Server, Data Center,
- popularity of extensions, for example: highest rated, most popular, bestselling,
- additional filters, for example: trial versions, free for up to 10 users.
Business innovation and increased popularity
Atlassian supports its users not only by providing them with tools that improve the producer’s systems. It is also possible to establish a business relationship with the company. The fact that the brand is open to cooperation is evidenced by the number of its partners, which exceeds 1250. If you want to join them, all you need to do is integrate your proprietary tool with the Atlassian environment and sign a partnership agreement. In return, the producer offers the opportunity to sell the product on the Marketplace, allowing businesses to reach a wide range of potential buyers. This also increases the visibility of the organization. The platform has more than 150,000 Customers from around the world. In addition, Atlassian offers billing for licenses sold and clear terms of cooperation. As a result, partners profit from working on their solutions. In addition, they build the image of an innovative, recognizable company.
We are proud of our Atlassian implementations. We support dozens of companies in the implementation of solutions from the Australian manufacturer. Our organization also has some first-hand experience with these tools. They allowed us to maintain continuous development and we decided to support others on their journey as well. After many years of working on extending the functionality of these tools in our own organization and elsewhere, we expanded the scope of our services and created the Atlassian Consulting team. The team oversees all implementations of JIRA, Confluence, and other Atlassian products.
We decided to go the extra mile and expand our offering in this area even further. We introduced a free consultation service for Atlassian products. During the consultation we will analyze the nature of your business and within 2 days* you will receive a solution proposal covering all your needs, saving you the time you would otherwise spend researching the market, analyzing functionality, and comparing available solutions.

*2 days: this is the time we usually take to prepare the analysis, but particularly demanding studies may require more time.
