Can we trust Atlassian ?

Leonid Danilenko April 6, 2022

Can we trust Atlassian products to be in core of our business processes. We asked this question yourselves a few years ago when we started to use Atlassian products and answer was yes.

Yesterday our Jira and Confluence instances goes down. All our information for now is inaccessible and our business processes stopped. We can't get any support person for phone call and can't get our information. It is shame for Atlassian and it is very alerting for current and new customers ! Ask yourselves - can you trust Atlassian when they just leave clients without support and without access to information in cloud products.

Hi @Leonid Danilenko ,

I think you can still trust Atlassian.

Something happend yesterday which caused the outage of several customer instances. These things happen (both on a Cloud platform and with locally hosted systems) and you can follow up any feedback Atlassian is providing on

I also believe it's impossible for a company with that many clients to provide personal phone support for each and every client. I believe at this moment you'd be just waiting in a queue longer than anything. If you however need such support, they do have dedicated programs for that type of contracts


So yes, it's annoying that we don't have a direct support line but I doubt they would be able to tell you anything more than what appears on the statuspage. If you want to you can always raise a support request thru (you might need to use a general topic as your cloud url won't be recognized either due to the issue)


Sadly there is not much more we can do or provide you with however if this is a business critical application in your organisation then maybe investing/looking in to backup/failover solutions or higher grade support might not be a bad suggestion.

Even the biggest products/companies can fail from time to time or have issues and sadly there is no magic solution to resolve it instantly.

This said, I'd raise a ticket with them and keep an eye on the statuspage updates.

Hello Dirk

Thank you for your answer. I understand your position and point of view on this case. It is completelly understand that support team has limited capabilities and can't provide real time support for all clients. It is ok. What is not ok is situation when Atlassian breaks current SLA ( i think that 24 hours downtime is not complies with SLA ) and doesn't provide nor any details nor phone number for discuss of situation. So - Atlassian doesn't complies with they own terms and SLA and at the same time doesn't provide any explanations and rejects to discuss this with clients. Do you think that such situation is ok ?

Hey @Leonid Danilenko ,

Let's be clear that my position is also that of a customer and someone that just like to volunteer time answering questions on this community (and by no way affiliated with Atlassian directly) :).

If we look at the SLA that Atlassian presents ( and it would be 99.9% uptime per month which would allow for +-45min of downtime I believe. According to that page you might be entitled to a "service credit" as a compensation but you'll have to submit a ticket for that.

I cannot find anything related to an SLA about Time to Resolution only about Time to Response 


So if my information is correct they are indeed in breach of SLA and you can get compensation. I also feel like communication could have been better but I personally  rather have they work on the issue than spend time on communication about the fact that they are working on it. But no, I don't feel like such a situation is ok and it could be handled better. (perhaps the current Team22 event is also placing a bit more of a strain on the communications going out)

The only other thing I was able to dig up was a reply from support posted by another user here regarding the cause and a possible resolution timeframe.

I still feel that if you want a more targeted reply you'll best create a ticket and have them reply on that and also look in to your compensation and if it is applicable.
