Why JSU?

JSU is the #1 Jira workflow automation Enterprise App since 2009 with 13M users automates Jira workflows at super speed and zero coding necessary. It is known for its simple and straightforward approach.

Since 2009, JSU was the first code-free automation suite for Jira workflows.

JSU preconditions not available elsewhere.

JSU operates within Jira’s post-functions, conditions, and validators, and it also gives you a set of robust preconditions for post-functions you cannot find in other apps.

More power, fewer steps.

Other applications boast of giving you more options but JSU gives you more power with fewer steps. What others can do with 40 extensions, JSU can do with only half. This is why with JSU, you can automate Jira workflows at super speed.

No coding necessary

Tedious coding contradicts the purpose of installing a Jira workflow automation app in the first place. JSU does not pass the heavy-lifting to you. It gives you clever ways to automate Jira workflows with absolutely zero coding necessary. You can simply point and click, sit back and relax. All you need to do is just set it up!

Automatic updates in sync with Jira releases.

Oftentimes, admins of scripted apps will need to re-write and update codes when the Jira API changes with every major Atlassian release. JSU creators give you one less thing to worry about. They take care of updates and regularly upgrade JSU so you won’t have to write and rewrite codes.

Key features only available in JSU

Main features comparison

It is said that imitation is a form of flattery, so over the years, with JSU being a trusted app used by the world’s largest companies, it was inevitable.

Another marketplace app, Jira Miscellaneous Workflow Extensions (JMWE), has published a partial view of how our features compare.

Whilst the comparison is made by some, JSU offers a suite of workflow features that are unique.

„(…) JSU and JMWE do different things, albeit with some overlap.  One is not a direct replacement for the other, unless your usage is limited to the places they overlap. (…)“

JSU fans say

„We manage a lot of different Jira instances and have found that this is a required plugin for all of our Jira instances. The ability to configure workflows with the built in conditions and validators from JSU are used on almost all our workflows.“

Mark Lang, Cisco

„JSU is fantastic product, i’d be lost without it.“

Nigel Budd, Clearvision

„The JSU Suite extends the functions for workflows perfectly and thus also enables the mapping of complex workflows. As an Atlassian Solution Partner we use JSU for our own work and are happy to recommend it to others.“
