This seemed to be too good to be true. I was searching for a way to connect MS Teams to JIRA and stumbled upon the Atlassian marketplace where a "free" MS Teams addon for JIRA was available by a company called Soft Serve.

- they plan to make it paid one day to return the investments
- it is part of their giving back to the community
