Atlassian forge 는 Atlassian cloud 제품에 최적화된 새로운 개발 플랫폼으로 기존 app 개발 방식대비 쉽고 빠르게 Cloud app 을 작성할 수 있습니다.

  • Build apps, not infrastructure: Write an app in minutes while the platform takes care of security, compute, and storage.
  • Maintenance, simplified: Keep apps and customizations up-to-date without the heavy-lifting.
  • The complete development toolkit: From testing to deploying, our Functions-as-a-Service platform has DevOps requirements covered.
  • Achieve more with extensibility: Run apps in Jira and Confluence today (with more on the way!).
  • Share your apps quickly and easily: Use the developer console to distribute your apps to users.

다른 플랫폼과 비교

forge 외에도 Atlassian Connect 를 사용하거나 REST API 를 활용해서 직접 연동하는 개발 방식이 있으며 아래 표는 각 방식의 장단점을 표시합니다. 

forge 는 다른 방식에 비해서 설정과 개발이 간단하며 배포가 쉽지만 개발 언어로 Node.js 와 react 를 사용해야 하는 제약과 아직은 Jira 와 Confluence 만 지원한다는 한계가 있습니다.
