When you’re ready to share your Forge app with users, you’ll need to enable sharing for your app in the developer console. This generates a link that you can share with users to install your app on their Atlassian site. The link also lets them uninstall your app, and update your app when you release new versions.
Use this method to share your apps for internal use, or to test your apps while we work on bringing Forge apps to the Atlassian Marketplace.
Note that for a user to install your app onto an Atlassian site, they must be the admin of a product on that site.
At any time, you can turn off sharing for your app. To see how this affects users who have already installed your app, see Stop sharing your app below.
Select which Atlassian products you want your user to install your app on.
Copy the installation link, and send it to your user. Remind them to keep the link somewhere safe, as they'll need it to update or uninstall the app in the future.
When your user visits the link, an installation screen appears, similar to the one below. It displays information about your app, including the permissions your app is requesting. From here, your user can choose a site and product to install your app on.
If you want to stop sharing your app with users, you must disable sharing in the developer console.
Your app is no longer being shared. This has the following effects:
You can start sharing your app again any time.
When you deploy a new version of your app to the production environment that includes updated scopes, users can update your app on their site using the installation link.
If needed, you can copy the installation link from the developer console and send it to them again.
If you've finished testing your app, and you're looking to access a large customer base or sell your app, check out our Early Access Program (EAP) for listing Forge apps on the Atlassian Marketplace.
