Can you limit plugin use to certain groups?

I have a JIRA instance for 2000 users. I want to purchase plugins but only for a certain subset of those users. Can I purchase only the amount of licenses I need?

It depends. If the add-on is using the "Paid Via Atlassian" method the license is bound to the JIRA license. The vendor will also not be able to provide you with an alternative. If the add-on is "Paid via Vendor" you might be able to make a deal with their sales team. They can generate the license themselves and this is usually not bound to the JIRA license.

I doubt it. How would you limit the use of the plugin function from a subset of the users? JIRA can't do that out of the box. It probably looks at the same pool of users, those that can logon, under the covers to know if the license is valid as JIRA does.

It depends on the plugins. Most ones, including all of those that implement Atlassian marketplace licensing, needs a license for the same number of users as in the JIRA license.
