The Atlassian Marketplace is huge. There are hundreds of developers offering thousands of apps on the platform for all imaginable scenarios. And finding the right solution on it is not so simple when it comes to specific problems and applications.

With scripts, you can extensively customize Jira (screens, custom fields, and more), automate complex workflows, create custom listeners to react to specific events, and enhance Jira’s reporting and integration capabilities. However, many scripting apps that plug into Jira don’t give you access to the full API, or use horribly complex scripting languages. But Power Scripts for Jira makes scripting easy.

We’ve also decided on the overarching theme for this year’s conference: Agile Goliath – is this possible?
Confluence and JIRA are definitely great products in their own right. However, there are several great reasons to use them together. Software development teams already using JIRA will benefit from using Confluence as well.
