Mockups for JIRA 3.X, Now with User-Based Pricing!

Hi there. So when Atlassian changed the pricing structure for JIRA 4.0 last month we rushed to match it, and sales of the JIRA 4.0 version have been very good already.

The demand for it has been so high that we decided to go back and implement user-based pricing for Mockups for JIRA when you run it on a JIRA 3.x server as well! 🙂

That's right, you can now purchase a 10-editor, 25-editor, 50-editor or 100-editor license of Mockups for JIRA and run it on your JIRA 3.7-3.13 server.

If your Mockups for JIRA license level is lower than your JIRA license level, all you have to do is create a user group called "balsamiq-mockups-editors" and manage its members it normally. These are people who will be able to create and edit mockups, everyone else will only be able to see them. Just like in Mockups for JIRA 4.0 and Mockups for Confluence.

The only thing you have to watch out for is to not go over your license limit, or Mockups will complain with a not-so-subtle "EULA Violation" message.

The nice side-effect of this change is that even if you purchase an unlimited license of Mockups for JIRA, you can still create a user group if you'd like to limit who can see the "Add/Edit UI Mockup" link on issues. This was requested by a few users in the past: if you're one of them, just update to today's version and give it a try!

We already updated the Mockups for JIRA page and the JIRA 4.0 licensing changes FAQ, but if you run into any issues or have any questions don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll do our best to clear things up.

And of course if you purchased Mockups for JIRA Unlimited in the last month and would like to downgrade to a smaller license, let us know and we'll be happy to refund you the difference (we'll email you about in the next few days if we don't hear from you).

Alright, go download Mockups for JIRA here! 🙂

  1. Will existing evaluation licenses for JIRA V3.12 continue to work if we upgrade to this latest version?

    [Peldi: absolutely, trials are all at the “unlimited” level during the trial period, that hasn’t changed. :)]

  2. Hi Robert, we don’t offer free or discounted licenses to college students, but why don’t you send an email to and we can discuss things?

  3. Do you have special offers for students?
