Get Started

Do you have multiple workflow function apps on your Jira instance? Want to see which app is delivering which workflow functionalities? Use Microscope Power Audit for Admins to gain an in-depth understanding of the apps you have on your instance and what they do so you can:

  • Simplify migration
    More apps mean more complexity when migrating. Simplify the process by removing unused apps before migration. 
  • Keep your instance healthy
    Too many apps with overlapping functionality can cause issues on your instance. Identify where each app is being used and where functionality overlaps to consolidate your instance. 
  • Save money
    Stop wasting money on license fees for apps you're not using. Identify surplus apps to reduce your costs. 
  • Gain understanding
    Run a scan of all apps to further understand a legacy instance.

Differences between the trial and paid licences

There are two versions of the app available: the free trial and a fully paid version.

The fully paid licence provides you with all the functionality and features of the Microscope product. 

The free trial licence enables you to view sample data in all reports and in the Insights dashboard. If you are using this version, you'll see a message informing you that you are not viewing the full data for your instance, and the word (Sample) appears next to the report names in the Insights dashboard, as shown below:
