Hi Luca,

If the Atlassian App uses our Connect system to integrate with our products, then they do not take up a Jira/Confluence license.

I'm not sure what you mean by Atlassian App or your Connect system...

Atlassian Connect is the way that developers can hook into our products:


I guess a better answer is:

If it's some sort of automation that uses Atlassian approved APIs, then there should be no additional Jira/Confluence product license needed.

If it's a script and/or it requires a user to be added to an atlassian product, even if that user is controlled via a script, then that user will take up a Jira/Confluence license.

It really depends on what you mean by Bot, i.e. how it's built / what it's doing.
