Upgrading from Free to Pro



Issue Checklist for Jira can be purchased with all features, or used as a limited free version. Both versions are fully supported. See this page for a comparison of available features.


  • Migrating between Free and Pro automatically preserves all checklist data. Checklists, templates, values in custom fields, etc. will be immediately available once the upgrade/downgrade is complete.

  • After upgrading/downgrading the checklist panel will be displayed beneath the issue Description. Users can move the Checklist to the right side panel if they wish. 

  • Upgrading or downgrading between Issue Checklist Free and Issue Checklist Pro versions can be performed an unlimited number of times.


Free and Pro versions share most configuration settings, excluding validators and read-only custom fields (Checklist Progress, Checklist Progress %).  Any checklist workflow validators, or in automation rules, JQL filters, etc that use read-only checklist fields, will need to be reset. Simply re-select the validator/field and save.
