Plugin settings are for storing settings related to the configuration of the app.  If you had things like the plugin is looking at a particular field or had options like limiting it to certain groups.

Active objects is where you would store data that you want to keep.  It has constructs that support things such as tables in the screen you've shown us.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  so should i use Active objects or Plugin settings?  and whats the difference between creating plugin (using atlas-create-jira-plugin) .and  refapp plugin(atlas-create-refapp-plugin)  .. i think for using active objects we need to create refapp plugin ,im i right?

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  can u also give me the link of steps need to follow to save data of the form

You should have a read of what @Alex Medved _ConfiForms_ said - it's the same answer I would give.

The easiest way is to use plugin settings / bandana properties, but the proper way, I believe, is to use Active Objects -

You don't have to create a refapp plugin (as anyway it is nothing else but a little bit "more" than an empty plugin created via "atlas-create-jira-plugin)")

You can add active objects module and required dependencies at any stage of your plugin development.
