Announcement Additional $0 transactions will now be available on transactions APIs

Last year, we added some $0 transactions (transactions resulting from 100% discounts) to the Marketplace APIs. At that time, we mentioned that we’d start providing transactions data in the Marketplace APIs for other $0 transactions beyond 100% discount cases as well.

More details

The additional $0 transactions will be available for the following types -

  • Those transactions that are for user-tiers that are defined as $0 in the pricing plan

  • Transactions for

    • Community licenses in server and data center products

    • Open source licenses

  • Transactions for licenses having maintenanceStartDate same as maintenanceEndDate which is possible when the license is renewed on the same date

  • Transactions for licenses where the app was installed on the parent sandbox site during initial provisioning which are $0

Added New pricing tiers for Marketplace cloud apps

Cloud apps on Atlassian Marketplace now offer the following new tiers for per-user pricing:

  • 35001-40000

  • 40001-45000

  • 45001-50000

For more information on the new tiers, see our CDAC post and Partner portal page.

More details

Pricing for the new tiers will default to the price for 35,000 users until Marketplace Partners add new per-user pricing for 35,001-40,000, 40,001-45,000, and 45,001-50,000.

Added Changes to Jira status management REST API

We have added a new expand option for bulk get statuses and search statuses paginated. With this change, it’s now possible to expand by workflowUsages to get a list of workflows that are used by the statuses.

Fixed Solution Partner Discount Opt In/Out Checkbox - Cloud Apps

We have fixed an issue with the Solution Partner discount checkbox for cloud apps on Marketplace. On the Marketplace Submit Pricing page, partners have an option to opt in/out to provide a Solution Partner discount. It was identified that new updates made to the checkbox for cloud apps post-January 2022 were not reflecting as intended. The bug was identified last month and is now fixed. Going forward, partners can opt in/out of the Solution Partner discount in the Marketplace pricing portal, as opposed to opting out through the Partner Portal page, as previously instructed.

Partner discount amounts are noted on all invoices and available in the Transactions Report on the Marketplace Admin Portal. Any remit discrepancies should be reported before June 30th, 2023 by submitting a support request.

Added Promotion codes added to the Get Transactions API

We are adding a new code field for the MARKETPLACE_PROMOTION type.

More details

In invoices, we have a discounts field, an array with each element containing a type and amount field. MARKETPLACE_PROMOTION is one such type for the discount the customer gets after using a promo code. With this release, we are adding a new code field for the MARKETPLACE_PROMOTION type. This field will be a string and will show the promo code that was used.

With this new field, you can better track specific campaign related promotions. You can find the new field documented here.

Deprecation Notice SEN will be replaced for cloud apps starting October 2023

After Oct 13, 2023, we will stop sending new data to 3 fields from the License and Transaction APIs for cloud licenses only, as these fields have been replaced on the new billing engine for cloud apps.

More details

After Oct 13, 2023, partners will not get data for these fields for cloud licenses:

  • licenseId - parent product license ID

  • hostLicenseId - parent product license ID

  • addonLicenseId- app license ID

As of October 2023, the fields on the left in the table below will no longer be available. Be prepared to transition to only the fields on the right by October 2023.

You can find details about how SEN will be replaced for cloud apps here, and explore other changes related Atlassian’s transition to a new cloud billing engine here in the Partner Portal.

Added New Search Insight APIs available

Atlassian Marketplace has developed the Search Insights feature. The feature is designed to help the discoverability of your apps through app titles, descriptions, and SEO.

This GA includes 4 data points. They provide a holistic view of search terms across Marketplace and the In-Product Embedded Marketplace.

The APIs are officially available starting today, Apr 4, 2023. In this release, the functionality will be available to all Marketplace Partners.

The above metrics are available via 8 new APIs. You can view the details of how to consume these APIs here:

More details

Search Insights - data points

  1. Top 500 searched keywords on Atlassian Marketplace and In-Product Embedded Marketplace

    • Keywords and their percentage searches by customers in the Marketplace and Embedded Marketplace search boxes separately. This can help you:

      • With content optimisation and keyword targeting

      • Understand the topics and keywords that are most relevant to your audience

      • Invest proportionally on campaigns that are more likely to resonate with potential customers

      • Understand your user’s search terms to modify content

  2. Top searched keyword and total search appearances combined for all your apps

    • Count and the top searched keyword which has landed customers among all partner apps.

    • Count and the top searched keyword which has landed customers to a particular app.

      • This too will help partners with content optimisation and keyword targeting

  3. Top searched keywords that led customers to your app listing

    • Searched keywords that prompted your app to show. It also populates the leading searched keywords based on the number of counts that resulted in landing the app.

    • Parent product's hosting filter that has been chosen for that particular searched keyword.

    • Breakdown of the keyword count on the basis of chosen time aggregation. 

      • This can help you understand the areas that are working well and where to improve visibility and growth.

  4. Zero results search keywords

    • Know which searched keywords have zero search results on the Marketplace

    • Discover potential business opportunities for your app or app idea

Announcement App Data Residency UI EAP customer rollout has begun

We have begun a gradual EAP rollout of app data residency information on admin.atlassian.com.

More details

This new UI will allow customers to see apps' data residency status, and schedule app data residency migrations.

For more information, see the advanced notice post in the Developer Community, or the recent announcement here in the developer blog.

Announcement Gradual customer rollout begins today for Privacy & Security tab

Starting today, 10-20% of visitors to the Atlassian Marketplace will be able to see the Privacy & Security tab on cloud app listings.

More details

We plan to increase the number of customers who can see the tab over the coming months to 50% and eventually 100%. Once 100% of customers can see the tab, we will publish a customer announcement.

Read more here.

Announcement Enhancements to report visualization

We have redesigned reports with a fresh look in response to the ongoing feedback and your concerns from the last rollout. The new design updates the UI to be more consistent with other Atlassian products while maintaining the familiarity of the existing workflows.

Not part of this redesign:

  • One piece of feedback we received during the first launch was to enable sorting in the Transactions/Licenses/Feedback Details tables. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate this request in the upcoming rollout. We’ll try to consider this in the next round of improvements.

  • For this release, the major emphasis is on optimizing the desktop experience while keeping the mobile platform’s functionalities similar.

Release timelines & roll-out plan

We are rolling out the new experience progressively on an opt-in basis. Partners will have the choice to enable the new experience via two in-product touch-points. They can either do this through a dismissible messaging card at the top of the reports page or through a fixed CTA located in the left navigation of the existing report.

The new experience will remain optional until June 30th, 2023. This will give partners the opportunity to use, compare, become accustomed to, and offer feedback on the new experience. Following the trial period, it will become the default experience for all partners.

More details

Here are some of the key highlights of the new design:

  1. Onboarding experience:
    We have designed an intuitive onboarding experience to help partners smoothly transition to the new experience. During the trial period, partners can switch back and forth between the two at any time.

  2. End-to-end interface:
    Partners now have access to the entire screen to view insights thanks to the end-to-end interface.

  3. Hierarchy in navigation and page structure:
    We’re retaining and enhancing the information hierarchy of the page layout.

  4. Retaining & enhancing filter usage & functionalities:
    a. In the first launch, we missed the multi-selection functionality of filters. We’re adding it in this release.
    b. We're moving “App & Hosting type” out of the “More filters” bucket. This is to make the most commonly used filters easier to find and use. We will update the popular filters in accordance with usage data in the future.

  5. Progressive disclosure of information:
    Partners can learn more about a specific license/transaction using an accordion (expand/collapse) interaction, similar to the current workflow. By clicking on “More details”, they can access all the relevant information about the license/transaction in a new tab.

  6. More clarity & structure to charts:
    The introduction of titles to charts boosts the clarity and readability of data. We’re also including legends at the bottom of the charts for visual reference. We’ve also made overall visual improvements to the charts.

  7. Accessibility-compliant colors for charts:
    We’re ensuring that the colors used in charts follow accessibility standards and provide at least a 3:1 contrast ratio against a light background.

  8. Improved Overview section:

    1. We’ve added “Total value” to the overview, for example, All sales/Evaluations/Feedback.

    2. There’s now a summary line at the top of the overview section. We also made the tone more conversational throughout the experience.

  9. Persistent feedback loop:
    We're including a feedback section at the bottom of every report page to get ongoing feedback.

  10. Table pagination:
    By default, tables will have a maximum of 50 rows. If there are more than 50 rows, pagination will be enabled.

Added Added PATCH API for Privacy & Security tab responses

We have added a new PATCH API to help partners submit edits to Privacy & Security tab responses.

More details

See updated documentation for the Privacy & Security tab API here.

Fixed Updated 2 Privacy & Security tab questions to reflect Not Applicable status

We have added a “Not Applicable” response to the Data Residency questions on the Privacy & Security tab, and made the disk encryption question conditional so that apps that do not store End User Data do not need to respond.

More details

Based on partner feedback, we’ve updated the following questions to reflect a “not applicable” state for apps that do not store data:

  • “Does your app support data residency options?”

    • These questions have been updated to include the following additional response option: “Not Applicable — app does not store End User Data.”

  • “Does your app use full disk encryption at-rest for End-User Data stored outside of Atlassian or the users’s browser?

    • This has been updated to not show for partners who respond “No” to the question “Does your app store End-User Data outside of Atlassian products and services?” regardless of an app’s data processing practices. Previously, this question showed up for apps where the response for storage was “No” but the response for data processing was “Yes”.

More details

What action is required of me?

If you are using these APIs, switch to the latest APIs before Aug 15, 2023 to maintain uninterrupted visibility of your workflows that are pulling data from these APIs.

As a reminder, you can find the latest Marketplace Reporting APIs listed in The Atlassian Marketplace REST API, which shows a complete list of data points and fields.

When and why did we introduce V2 APIs?

V2 APIs were introduced before 2020 and the majority of partners have already migrated to V2 APIs. We see that only 3 partners still use V1 APIs.

We created V2 APIs because they are:

  • More performant

  • Pull from a more reliable data source

  • Include additional data fields

  • Are integrated with our new billing engine’s data pipeline

Note that all future upgrades will be made to the V2 APIs only.

Why are we deprecating V1 APIs?

Cleaning up outdated APIs is part of a larger effort for Marketplace to streamline our reporting efforts into higher-value activities for partners.

We are deprecating V1 APIs because they are less reliable, outdated, and will not be maintained moving forward.

Announcement New timeline for end of new Bamboo & Crowd server apps and server app sales on Atlassian Marketplace

To ensure all server app contracts are complete by the server end of support deadline on February 15 2024, we are implementing a new timeline for the end of new server apps and server app sales for Bamboo and Crowd.

More details

The deadline to submit new server apps for Bamboo and Crowd will be August 20, 2023. After this date, new server app submissions will no longer be accepted for Bamboo and Crowd.

The deadline to purchase new Bamboo and Crowd server apps will be November 19, 2023. All app sales and renewals will be pro-rated to end on February 15, 2024 to align with Atlassian’s server end of support.

Announcement Sales of new server apps will end today, Feb 15, 2023

Server apps will no longer be sold on Atlassian Marketplace.

Existing customers with server apps will be able to renew their apps, but renewals will be prorated to an end date of February 15, 2024 Pacific Time (PT) to match their server products' end of support date.
