Example apps

Example apps are a great way to see what you can build with Forge. Explore the apps listed below to learn how Atlassian develops Forge apps.

Before you begin

You'll need the Forge CLI set up and running. Learn more about getting started. When the CLI is running, clone an example app repository so you can explore and customize the code locally:

  1. Click an example app repository.
  2. Clone the repository.
  3. Open your command line, and navigate to the example app code.
  4. Open the file and follow the quickstart instructions.

At any time, refer back to the Jira and Confluence getting started guides or view the Tutorials and guides page for more information.

Note, the forge register command creates a unique app ID in the manifest.yml file and links the ID to the current developer. Forge apps can currently only be deployed and installed by the developer who is linked to the app.

Compass web trigger app

Currency exchange app

Adds a custom field to a Jira issue that returns the total value of one or more currency amounts exchanged into a common currency. For example, you could enter currency amounts in euros and US dollars to display the total in Australian dollars. If no currency values are provided the field displays "No values yet." This message is applied using the context configuration.
