Is there a way to identify in JIRA which Plugins are being used and how much they are used?

We are reviewing our plugin licenses and am wondering if there is a way to identify which of our installed plugins are being used and how much they are being used to help us with our licensing renewal analysis.

Currently on JIRA Downloaded version: 6.2.4 and JIRA Agile: 6.3.12

I dont think there is a way but, you might be able to try by disabling the plug in and see if anyone screams or do a vote in confluence or jira.

This is probably the least useful answer that could have been provided.

There is not a standard way to know (would love there to be!). However, if a specific plugin provides any custom fields, you can see which, if any, projects are using them in the Custom Fields admin section (Under Administration -> Issues). This might help you identify some of the plug-ins you're hoping to find. This only works for plug-ins that provide custom fields.

You can get "under the hood" with these by using the REST API and calling http://<your_host>/jira/rest/api/latest/fields. The returned set will include both system and custom fields ("custom": true). You can then look at the "schema" attribute, which contains another "custom" attribute, which contains a string that might give you a clue as to where the field came from (many have a fully-qualifed package name). You could then match up the string to your plug-in provider. It's not a 100% perfect solution, but it might help.
