Atlassian offers a lot of additions to its main software products, such as Jira, Bamboo, Confluence, etc. These additions, also called apps or plugins, can be purchased on Atlassian Marketplace. Apps are built by vendors, companies like SolDevelo that use Atlassian products daily, are software houses and want to develop their own addons or develop functionalities that may be helpful for their own teams and the rest of the users of Atlassian.
There is a huge variety of plugins offered on the Marketplace.
For example, SolDevelo has created 3 Apps: QAlity Plus (for test management), Worklogs (for time tracking and reports) and Multiple Checklists (for organizing work, criteria of “done”).
