We’re excited to announce that Forge apps can now be listed on Marketplace through an Early Access Program (EAP). This program allows selected Marketplace Partners to list Forge apps (free and paid) on the Atlassian Marketplace.
Forge apps are easier to build and manage, as you can rely on Atlassian’s hosted compute and storage, which we’ve invested in making secure and reliable.
We’ve used your invaluable feedback to iterate and improve the platform, and recently brought Forge into general availability. In the next step of this exciting journey, Forge apps are now ready to be installed by users on the Atlassian Marketplace.
Interested in joining the EAP?
This program gives you a chance to list Forge apps on the Atlassian Marketplace, while providing us critical feedback that will help us to iterate upon and improve your Marketplace experience as a developer.
Learn more about listing your Forge app on Marketplace, and how to submit a Forge app for approval in the program.
EAP participants will be added to a private category on the developer community, which is the primary channel for feedback from EAP participants.
Although not all use cases are currently addressed (see EAP limitations), we’re working to expand the use cases and types of Forge apps supported throughout the EAP. As we look to further enhance Forge apps on the Atlassian Marketplace, we’re working on observability and additional functionality for Forge apps . See “what’s next” in this post. Future considerations include the need for faster app approvals, better Marketplace support through tools, and access to data insights on app performance, benchmarking, and usage.
Cross-product apps, i.e. single apps installable across multiple products, will not be available in the near future – but they’re part of the future that we envision for our cloud ecosystem. We will share updates with the developer community as we prioritize additional updates to the Atlassian Marketplace roadmap.
