For Atlassian Connect/Cloud the Marketplace creates a new add-on version whenever it detects changes to the add-on descriptor. This means as a vendor you can release many version of your add-on but as long as there is no descriptor change there won’t be a new Marketplace version.
Now, the Marketplace provides a feature for customers to subscribe to version updates which is quite neat, but if you rely on the automatic versioning by the Marketplace only, it’s not very useful. So, I was thinking to manually create a new version for releases where Marketplace does not automatically generate one. This way subscribers would be automatically informed about new versions even if the descriptor is not changed.
I was wondering if this practice make sense? How do others do that? Does Atlassian have an opinion on this?
