Are there any plans for a more flexible licensing model for JIRA? We have some teams who want access to plugins, but those plugins aren't required by everyone.
The need to buy licenses that match the overall JIRA license numbers is meaning the business case for those plugins is not working out, as the cost per head of people actually intending to use the plugin is too high.
Atlassian allows Vendor to define its own license management (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/MARKET/License+Validation+Rules)
A license is invalid if its maximum number of users property is less than that of the application license:
Application is licensed for a fixed limit; plugin license has a fixed limit that is lower
Suggested Error Message:
Invalid license: Your ADD_ON_NAME is only licensed for LIMIT_VALUE users. Your ATLASSIAN_APPLICATION installation requires a license for LIMIT users. Please get a ADD_ON_NAME license for LIMIT_VALUE users and try again.
So, each vendor could define license user limit.
