How to determine which add-ons you need

We're currently considering Jira SD. One thing that we encounter is mapping out the full costs. Since you can choose from thousands of add-ons and cannot decide in advance which one you actually need, it is difficult to gain insight into this. Some add-ons are clearly needed, others less so (e.g. I read on the forum you have to buy add-ons for checkboxes or [simple] automations) It may be impossible to decide in advance which ones are needed, because there is an overload, but we want to form the best possible picture to prevent unforeseen expenses. What experiences do you have with this? How did you tackle this issue?

I would say your best option woult be to just go ahead and test the product yourself. 

Set up a demo environment (it's free) and try to meet all your requirements using only the paid addons that are actually worth it FOR YOU.

As a general advice... with scripting tools (scriptrunner, jira automation, mygroovy...) you'll be able to get a lot of things that other specific addons provide, plus a lot of custom stuff you could come up with. The thing is that you'll need to spend your time with the actual configration to get that instead of just getting it out of the box. 

@Iago Docando Thank you for your comprehensive answer. We indeed set up a demo environment and will try to meet all our requirements with add-ons that are worth for our situation.

Your general advice is what we were expecting, so thanks for the validation.

Have a great day and stay safe!
