Jira Plugin development doubts


Hello Team,


I have few questions regarding app development for Cloud Jira version:-


1. if we use Forge platform to develop plugins and if we also have our own custom REST service, how will this be managed? As in, App will be hosted by Atlassian but how about the REST services? will this be taken care by Atlassian as well? or we should take care of hosting the REST API? please advise 


2. In the last Atlassian developer event, we noticed quite a lot of improvement towards Forge, is this an indication that some day Connect will be grounded? 


3. What's the best way to store custom data? what's the best practice? We could use database for storing custom data but what about hosting it in production environment for Forge and Connect?


4. Is it possible that we can debug apps in our local environment via Connect without NgRok? 


5. For hosting Forge apps on  Atlassian, do we get charged for that?

Any help is much appreciated.

Hey Mike,

You may want to ask the technical questions in our developer community. Perhaps some of them might already been answered.

As for the rest:

2. Atlassian Connect and Forge will unify while remote iframes and JWT auth will be deprecated in Connect at a future date. More details can be found here.

5. Using Forge is free of charge, up to the platform quotas or limits, through 2023. More details can be found here.

Hi Mike,

Sorry to hear you're having trouble signing in!

Could you confirm that:

(1) you are logging into; and

(2) are signing in with a valid Atlassian Account (you can test your credentials or sign up for a new account at

Once you've confirmed the above, could you describe the issue you're seeing with logging in in a bit more detail (e.g. are you seeing any errors) and ideally share a screenshot of where you're getting stuck?
