On Jira Cloud? No premium plan? No problem.

Save at least 68% on automation.

If you’re affected by the Jira Automation limits that were recently announced by Atlassian, you’re in the right place.

Don’t want to think about automation limits for Jira Cloud?

If your automations are limited, either by technology or by tiered pricing, it forces you to spend time monitoring those automations to check you’re not hitting buffers. It forces you to make tough calls about what is worthy of automation, despite every automation saving your company time or reducing the risk of processes not properly followed.
It forces you to think about something that, by its nature, you didn’t want to think about.
Automations exist to help clear out the clutter and let you focus on what really matters. They exist to help you build a Jira instance that truly works for and is custom to your teams. You should be able to implement and experiment without worrying about limits.

ScriptRunner has no automation usage limits

With ScriptRunner, there is no limit to the amount of automations you can run. It doesn’t matter how big your organisation or its Jira instance is: whatever automation or customisation you need, we believe you should just be able to make that happen, on whatever schedule, in whichever projects, and using whatever triggers you decide.

So much can be done with this plugin. And the best part is the prompt support you get. I am not a programmer so while understanding the potential I struggled to figure out how to properly write the code. The help I got from the support team helped me achieve so much. Our Jira automation now is so sophisticated and does so many things.
