Want to migrate from JSU to JMWE?

Migrating from JSU to JMWE

Customers who run older Jira instances might still have the free version of JSU. Now it is no longer free and requires a license to operate, which you'd need upon upgrading to the latest Jira instance. Recently, JSU announced price increases, up to three-fold, and as of November 4, 2019, JMWE and JSU are priced the same*. However, some customers either consider purchasing a single workflow automation tool or want to replace JSU with JMWE. In most cases, thanks to many point-and-click extensions in JMWE, as well as extensibility via simple yet powerful scripting, it can be done easily.

ScriptRunner vs JMWE: Choose the best app for your needs

jmwe-vs-scriptrunner
ScriptRunner for Jira and Jira Misc Workflow Extensions are the two top-selling apps in Admin tools and Workflow categories for Jira Server and Data Center, with 23K+ and 16K+ installations respectively (as of July 2019). 

Adaptavist's ScriptRunner provides sophisticated scripting options for many admin functions, while JMWE lets you quickly and easily configure and extend workflows - and only workflows. Many Jira Admins actually use both JMWE and ScriptRunner, but they use them for different things. 

Here, we outline the main differences between JMWE and ScriptRunner to help you decide when to use one app versus the other.

Automatically transition Jira Issues

automatically-transition-rachel

As a Jira administrator, I frequently see this problem: child issues are closed but nobody remembered to close the parent issue. Users have already moved on to the next thing and the parent issue sits in its incorrect status forever. Or maybe it's the opposite: the Epic is closed, but its Stories, Bugs, and Tasks were forgotten.

When issue status does not reflect reality, reporting is a nightmare. All completed or unneeded issues should be transitioned to their final status. Why not take this step off your user's "to do" list and automate it? It's easy to automatically transition issues with Innovalog's Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE) app.

Boost your Jira Boards with JMCF calculated fields

Customize your Jira board with a calculated field

In Jira, you can customize your Board cards to help users focus on important details. You can filter according to your preferences, change colors, and display up to three fields.
