The Atlassian JIRA team announces the release of JIRA 4.3.3. This point release contains several updates and fixes, plus version 2.3.1 of the JIRA Importers Plugin, providing support for Pivotal Tracker and improvements in the way attachments are imported. The FishEye plugin version 3.1.5 is also included.
JIRA 4.3.3 also delivers some improvements with LDAP and Crowd directories, including:
- Synchronisation performance gains of up to 400% in some cases.
- Changed behaviour for automatic group membership in LDAP directories: In previous releases, users were added to the given groups each time they logged in. In JIRA 4.3.3 and later, automatic group assignment will happen only the first time the user logs in. This allows administrators to remove group memberships after they have been granted. For more information, see Connecting to an LDAP Directory.
- Automatic user creation for internal directories with LDAP authentication: You can now configure the directory to automatically copy the user from LDAP to the internal directory on first login, and to add the user to given groups. See Connecting to an Internal Directory with LDAP Authentication.
- More directory types available when connecting to an internal directory with LDAP authentication: You can now select from a number of LDAP directory servers. See Connecting to an Internal Directory with LDAP Authentication.
JIRA 4.3.3 is of course free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.
