Add-ons and plugins

Add-ons, also known as plugins, add extra functionality to your Atlassian Cloud apps. From managing versioned documentation to creating mockups and wireframes, there's a whole range of possibilities.

Add-ons are added to each Atlassian Cloud app, individually. Check out the documentation for your app(s), below.

How do I get new add-ons?

The Atlassian Marketplace is a one-stop shop for add-ons to Atlassian products. Visit the marketplace to see what's available; you can filter by the Atlassian app you're using, or just go ahead and search for something.

You can also reach the marketplace via the "Find New Add-ons" screen in the Administration section of JIRA applications or Confluence.

There are two types of add-ons that you can install in your site:

  • Add-ons delivered through Atlassian Connect – Atlassian Connect allows remote add-ons to securely interact with Atlassian products. The add-ons run independently of the Atlassian Cloud service and interact via standard web protocols.
  • Bundled add-ons – Cloud applications come with a set of bundled add-ons that can be enabled or disabled at any time.

There are free and commercial add-ons using both delivery methods.

  • To install free add-ons for Atlassian Cloud, you must be an administrator (a member of the site-adminsadministrators or jira-administrators group).
  • To install paid add-ons for Atlassian Cloud, you must be a site administrator (a member of the site-admins group).

Check out some of our favorite add-ons for cloud applications in the Atlassian Marketplace. If you're interested in developing your own add-ons for Atlassian Cloud, you can check out our Atlassian Connect documentation.
