Discover how ScriptRunner can turn your Jira instance into all that you ever wanted it to be.


Advanced automation with Groovy scripts

With ScriptRunner, you can focus on making Jira better rather than manual upkeep. Go beyond simple drag-and-drop tools to building complex automations at scale, such as:

Build multi-step automation flows with bespoke logic, loops and variables Archive issues, update and validate custom fields across projects, and save hundreds of hours on repetitive tasks Run scripts on a schedule, on-demand, or in response to an event within Jira.

Improve Jira for every user

Whether you're a Jira admin or an everyday user, ScriptRunner makes your life easier and helps you get more out of Jira.

With enhanced JQL search you can run more sophisticated search queries and set up granular filters to find the information you need. For example, you can locate epics with stories currently being worked on or identify duplicate issues in a project.

Hit the ground running with ready-made scripts and training resources.

No coding skills? No worries. Start building automations with built-in scripts that work out of the box, or visit the Adaptavist Library to explore hundreds of scripts written by other users - which you can use for inspiration or just copy and paste directly into your instance.

Migrating from server?

Keep the automations, customisations and hands-off housekeeping that you’ve come to rely on.

As of February 2nd 2021, Atlassian customers can no longer purchase or request a quote for new Server licenses. This cloud-first focus raises important questions: is now the time to move fully to Atlassian Cloud? Could Data Center—or a hybrid model—be the right option?

Already making your migration plans?

We’re ready when you are. Whether you’re headed to the cloud or keeping things local with Data Center hosting, we offer a well-established version of ScriptRunner for Jira for both, each including a 30 day free evaluation period.

This recent webinar outlines our recommended approach to Cloud migration and explains the similarities and differences between the Cloud and Server products.

You’re not alone

Sometimes it helps to be reminded of what’s possible. That’s why we got bluechip giants Arm to share details of their migration journey—migrating their 10,000 users to Jira Cloud—whilst maintaining their essential ScriptRunner automations.
