Appfire Unveils Next-Generation Jira Automation App to Meet Evolving Market Needs

Appfire announced today the unveiling of a new easy-to-use app, Drag and Drop Automation for Jira, that allows users to create powerful, cross-platform, code-free automations in order to do their work more quickly and efficiently.

In addition to automating work within users entire Atlassian stack (including tools like Jira, Confluence, Bamboo, BitBucket, Trello and more), Drag and Drop Automation also integrates with Slack and popular Atlassian apps like Tempo Timesheets and Structure from ALM Works.

Appfire will present the product at Atlassians 2019 Summit in Las Vegas with the goal of gathering user feedback and providing an opportunity to see Drag and Drop Automation in action. Customers will be able to sign up for the apps Early Access Program waitlist. Appfire also plans to give product demonstrations to other Atlassian Marketplace vendors in order to identify additional integration opportunities with ecosystem partners.

Automation is our expertise, Appfire CEO Randall Ward said. And weve seen how the market has changed over the last 12 years. As more non-technical teams have adopted Jira and more non-developers have become Atlassian administrators, weve seen a growing need for easier automation geared toward people who dont want to code.

With 12 years of experience helping companies automate their work, Appfires Bob Swift brand apps (like its widely used Command Line Interface family of products) have enabled users to create time-saving automations for their Atlassian tools.

This new product brings together over 900 unique, stackable actions for Atlassians flagship products and other popular tools, said Bob Swift, Chief Product Architect. Its the only app in this space that allows people to create cross-platform automations for their full Atlassian stack with a straightforward, drag-and-drop interface. It even works across cloud, server and data center deployments. We cant wait to see how people react when they see it!

Automation shouldnt be limited only to people who can write scripts, Appfire Marketing Director Holly Wright said. There are a lot of products available for people who want to code their own automation solutions. But if youre not a coder, then you dont really have any options. Thats why were reimagining how an automation app should look, feel and work  with all the power, and none of the scripting.

Appfire plans to officially release Drag and Drop Automation to the Atlassian Marketplace later this year, but attendees at Atlassians Summit, April 9-11, can get an inside look by visiting booth #1019 at the Mandalay Bay South Convention Center in Las Vegas. Those interested can also learn more by attending a presentation on Drag and Drop Automation at 12:35 p.m., April 10, in Theater B within the Expo Hall.
