ARN has a free version available for Cloud hosting on the Atlassian marketplace, which is exactly the same as that of the paid version. There are only a few minor differences between the two that we highlight below.
Over a period of time the differences can increase, but our endeavour is to provide sufficient value even via the free version.
5 per month
Cross project calendar
Rule execution limits for free version
unlimited remaining - For 2 calendar months, free version offers unlimited actions to be executed.
For example, if you installed the app on 7th June you will have unlimited executions available until end of July.
3 remaining - Post the unlimited rule executions period, every successfully executed action is counted as 1 and is deducted from the max allowed 5. This limit is at the instance level. Meaning, if you execute the action successfully on 2 different projects - they will count as 2. If a rule has 7 actions, then the limit will be exceeded in one single execution of the rule i.e. 5 actions will succeed and 2 will fail.
exhausted - Once the max allowed limit of 5 is reached, this lozenge will be displayed within the top right corner of the free app. Sample below.
How are number of executions counted ?
Every time any action included in a rule is executed - via automated or manual triggers is counted as an execution. Post the unlimited execution period, free version of ARN allows 5 successful executions across given Jira instance. Once this limit is reached, all executions on this instance will be ‘Blocked’ from execution.
