Both Automation Lite (free) and Automation (paid) are supported

The Automation for Jira app is available in two versions: the free unsupported version called "Automation Lite for Jira" and the paid supported version called "Automation for Jira". Better PDF Exporter supports both versions. In this context there is no difference between those, and the everything written in this page is applicable to both.
