Dear Adaptavist team, I want to express my appreciation for the ScriptRunner plugin. It has been an essential tool in helping me achieve my business goals and that of all my clients. If I had to choose only one Jira plugin, it would be ScriptRunner because it is a multi-purpose tool that fills the gaps where Jira lacks functionality. I have used ScriptRunner on several cloud instances, and it's always the first Jira add-on I install. It's a critical add-on that provides Jira with versatility beyond my expectations. I'm grateful to have such a powerful tool at my disposal. Additionally, I have had the pleasure of receiving excellent support from the cloud support team. They have been patient in helping me understand groovy scripts and have provided me with invaluable insights on how to make the most of ScriptRunner. I'm impressed by their willingness to go above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. The Adaptavist plugin is one of the best among all Jira/Confluence plugin vendors. Thank you for making complicated Jira Automation scenarios possible. You have genuinely helped me streamline business processes and increase productivity. Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication. Best regards, Ben van den Berg from Agile Digital Solution (Pty) Ltd

Adaptavist team, I guess I did write a review a while ago, but I feel like writing another one now. If I were to choose only one plugin for Jira, I would, undoubtedly, choose this ScriptRunner plugin!! What a multi-purpose tool it is!!! I have been following it since its inception days (initially founded by Jamie Echlin and acquired by you around 2015 I guess).. what a transformation it has gone through and how critical it has become for a Jira Data Center instance in terms of automations!!!! I must commend the awesome support by the both Cloud and Server teams.. in the past 10 years, whenver I got stuck with groovy scripts, the Support folks have repeatedly helped me out with wonderful ideas and pieces of sample snippets!! I would rank the Adaptavist plugin support as the BEST among all Jira/Confluence plugin vendors!! Recently I ran in to a challenge to write a validation behaviour between a single-select field and a cascade field with bi-directional dependencies. From the forums, it sounded it is an impossible task to read the value of a child option of the Cascade field when you write the server-side behaviour snippet on the driving Single-select field. But with wonderful support from an awesome engineer, Robert Bayliss, I am able to achieve what I have been looking out for!! There tons of such examples of Adaptavist support engineers' willing-to-help attitude, though they can simply avoid helping us saying that they are not obligated to help the Jira customers with coding tips!! 99% of the time, all support engineers try their best to understand what customer is asking for and would render their best possible conducive help!! Thanks Adaptavist.. without you, 90% of complicated Jira Automation scenarios would FAIL!! I would give the rest of 10% credit to Automation for Jira and Jira Workflow Toolbox plugins. :)

Since I used it in the past on the Server instance, I could say that in the Cloud there are a few functionalities needed and I'm pretty sure Adatavist will roll out in the next period. Nevertheless, I recommend this tool.

Great plugin and also very good service in the support cases I have had with them. This plugin is the equivalent of a swish army knife for Jira, it is a must have I would say even if you have no previous programming experience.

Great support received when I asked for the information about isssueFunction which previously was available for all users and now it's a bit different due to some Atlassian limitations

Transform Jira with ScriptRunner

Discover how ScriptRunner can turn your Jira instance into all that you ever wanted it to be.


Advanced automation with Groovy scripts
With ScriptRunner, you can focus on making Jira better rather than manual upkeep. Go beyond simple drag-and-drop tools to building complex automations at scale, such as:
Build multi-step automation flows with bespoke logic, loops and variables.

Archive issues, update and validate custom fields across projects, and save hundreds of hours on repetitive tasks.

Run scripts on a schedule, on-demand, or in response to an event within Jira.

Customise every element of Jira
Control every aspect of your Jira instance and make it your own with direct access to the Jira Java API (for Server and Data Center) and REST API (for Cloud), including:
Modify the way your users interact with Jira to reflect your business processes and enforce best practices
Display custom messages and notifications Control and modify your Jira UI (Server and Data Center)

Extend Jira functionality with 3rd party integrations
Connect your entire business by moving your data easily between Jira and other business systems - including tools within the Atlassian stack such as Confluence and Bitbucket, or 3rd party solutions such as Slack. This allows you to:
Query SQL databases or LDAP within Jira, e.g. as part of a workflow validator.

Store and access data directly within Jira issues and projects, making it the single source of truth for your organisation.

Add REST endpoints to pull data and notifications from 3rd party systems.

Improve Jira for every user

Whether you're a Jira admin or an everyday user, ScriptRunner makes your life easier and helps you get more out of Jira.
With enhanced JQL search you can run more sophisticated search queries and set up granular filters to find the information you need. For example, you can locate epics with stories currently being worked on or identify duplicate issues in a project.

Hit the ground running with ready-made scripts and training resources.

No coding skills? No worries. Start building automations with built-in scripts that work out of the box, or visit the ScriptRunner Library to explore hundreds of scripts written by other users - which you can use for inspiration or just copy and paste directly into your instance.

Security and stability, as standard

We're proud to have achieved these milestones (so far!) around data security, privacy and stability:
ScriptRunner has opened up a world of automation and customisation which otherwise would have required multiple plugins and apps.
