Forge helps you focus more on innovation and less on infrastructure.
Forge apps are fully hosted by Atlassian. When you build a Forge app, Atlassian automatically creates your development, staging and production environments. You can write a single function and it will run, significantly reducing the amount of code needed to write and operate an app.
This was designed to make operating your app easier and more secure, and to save you time and running costs.
With Forge, you’re in control of how and when data leaves Atlassian cloud. As a FaaS platform Forge takes care of authentication, identity, scaling, and tenancy.
Forge apps run inside a second security layer that enforces tenancy isolation and data egress restriction by design. See our shared responsibility model, for what’s shared between you and Atlassian when building a Forge app.
UI kit allows you to quickly and easily build UIs using pre-built components. UI kit components match the look and feel of Atlassian products, for great-looking and intuitive app interfaces with minimal coding.
With the built-in Storage API, FaaS and triggers, one can operate apps with virtually no owned infrastructure – which also makes the entire operation model not only incredibly cheap but also much more secure.
