Pay Limited users for Jira Portfolio?

Hi Jiraporfolio team, for the pricing, I have one question, if our company have 500 users on Jira but only 20 of them need to use portfolio, is that possible to pay for limited users?

No, you need to licence it at the same level as the core JIRA product.

Huge bummer. This would be an easy sell at my company if not for this. I wish they'd charge more for less users. Or go with a tiered read-only type user and then a write access user.

I suspect Portfolio may move to become an "application", like Service Desk or Software, and then you would be able to do different user levels. But I don't have any more info on that than you do. Just a feeling

This is what we have now: "For JIRA Server 7.0 or later, the add-on tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on your instance. For example, if you're running JIRA Software (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for add-ons." Reference: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.radiantminds.roadmaps-jira -> Picing tab

Yes. As I already implied Portfolio is an add-on, not an application, so it needs to follow the Core licence level. (Until, as I suspect, it becomes an application, which will then be licenced as an application)

@nic please no!!!! if atlassian start to change addon to application a lot of customer will search other solutions.

I think you're missing the background of what an "application" is in this context. JIRA 7 split JIRA into three products - Core, Software and Service Desk. They're being marketed as separate products, but what they *really* are is: JIRA Core JIRA Software = JIRA Core with the Software Application installed JIRA Service Desk = JIRA Core with the Service Desk Application installed Applications are the new feature for JIRA 7 - they're JIRA Applications that run within Core. Not separately. An incorrect, but simple and useful way to think of them is "A different type of add-on". Service Desk and Software used to be add-ons, but now they're Applications. But still JIRA applications. I can't think of a single reason why a Portfolio customer would go elsewhere just because it changes from an add-on to an application. The move would have some benefits in terms of cost and flexibility for some users, and absolutely zero downsides.

...and you will continue to pay as a "core features" so for all users. the only plugin (provided by atlassian) that has a different license type is "service desk" but they have created a lot of bloking permission and features to create something similar of other "pay per use" system. A lot of users complain about plugin costs, because plugin are related to product license tier. If you want to add a small features to jira, you will have to pay it for all users...Service desk is different because has a different target (people outside system) and usually product like this one (zendesk ..etc) has a license not related o end users (This is my opnion as a user)

No, that's still a bit wrong. Please read my previous comment.

i still don't like it :) read my prev comment :)

I wasn't saying anything about liking it. I'd prefer it to become an application. I was just pointing out that what you'd written was incorrect

It's a shame you price it this way.  My company has a 250 user license and we only currently have about 106 users.  There is no way I can even ask my company to spend $6000 for a tool 3-4 people will use.  I won't even waste my time evaluating.  ...such a shame.

Atlassian price it that way, not us - we're end-users, like you.

If you're only having 3-4 people using Portfolio from a 100 user base, that's telling me that it's not something you really need.  So I'd skip it.  I totally agree with you - for a couple of people who might benefit, it's not worth it as the rest of you won't!

Hello Hua,

       You can get most of the information you need from: https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/jira-portfolio

       Here is the answer that Nic already gave to you: https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/jira-portfolio#serverlicenses-5

 

Still true that portfolio license count # needs to be same as JIRA license count # (asking 2 years later)?  We have less than 25 users on a team that would benefit from portfolio, but have a 500 user JIRA?
