Text Gadget module to be removed
Platform Notice: Cloud Only - This article only applies to Atlassian products on the cloud platform.
The Text Gadget module will be removed from JIRA Cloud on December 12th, 2016, to remove any potential security risks. This gadget can contain arbitrary HTML and therefore creates an XSS vulnerability.
Impact on your site
This module enables formatted text in dashboard gadgets. When the module is removed, any dashboard using this functionality will fail to render rich text and result in an error message.
We recommend transferring your existing content across to the Rich Text Gadget, that can be found in the Atlassian Marketplace. You can also contact our Cloud Support Team for help retrieving text previously stored in the Text Gadget once the original gadget is removed.
