How to easily manage Atlassian user license using marketplace app

How to easily manage Atlassian user license when the number of users fluctuates frequently.


Have you ever had a problem with user licenses management for Jira or Confluence?

Or are you considering upgrading the Atlassian user tier?




I would like to introduce "Flexible User License" which is a marketplace app for license management.

The administrator does not need to manually deactivate the user, and the app setting allows automatically the assignment of the licenses to the unlicensed users when they log back in.

In addition, the automatic assignment and removal of licenses allows users to handle a certain number of users, even if they exceed the number of user licenses.

If you are considering upgrading the user tier, you should try this app to save the costs.


Please see how IT team reduce the costs and improve the efficiency of user license management using this app.

Sounds interesting. I would imagine though that one drawback would be that anyone that does not have the "can use" permission does not show up in the people directory. So, if you use the people directory for your internal "phone book" deactivated users would not show ... unless you have some kind of workaround for that?

While I am aware of the challenges when using an external user management in read-only mode (AD/LDAP) - I just wanted to ask if the App is compatible anyway with such one?
In case this applies is it able to show its full potential?
From the demo video I assume the directory has to be r/w (as in the example showed with Crowd).
