Simpler JIRA integration
With FishEye 2.9, linking to JIRA is just like Plug & Play. You simply need to set up an Application Link between your JIRA server and your FishEye instance to get all the power of JIRA / FishEye integration:
- View in JIRA the list of changesets corresponding to a specific issue
- Navigate to the related changesets from your issue
- Get the JIRA data corresponding to issues mentioned in your commit messages and your source in FishEye
You no longer need to create and maintain multiple links between projects in JIRA and repositories in FishEye. Maintaining your JIRA / FishEye integration has never been simpler! More...
More JIRA data in FishEye
Before FishEye 2.9 you had to create links from FishEye to particular JIRA projects in order to see your issue data in FishEye. Without doing this, you just wouldn't see data for projects that were not linked to FishEye. Now, with the FishEye 2.9 release, you no longer have to create those project-specific links because all of your JIRA data is accessible in FishEye as soon as you link your instances together. Not only will you save time from not having to administer all the separate FishEye/JIRA links, but your FishEye instance is now also smarter and gets data from all the projects existing on your JIRA server.
Note that project links remain available in FishEye 2.9, but they now act as a restriction on the integration. If you set up project links from FishEye to JIRA, only issues from those particular projects will be linked in FishEye.
Faster JIRA source tab
Part of the effort of revamping the JIRA integration was to improve the performance of the issue source tab, especially for large instances with multiple repositories, each with many changesets. The chart below shows the performance gain in FishEye as a result of the effort to make it scale well as your data grows.
- Remote API setting always on
We removed the Remote API setting from the Server Settings page. From this release onwards the Remote APIs will always be accessible, to make the JIRA integration straightforward.
- JIRA FishEye Plugin option "Disable for unmapped JIRA Projects" has been removed
As of this release, it no longer makes sense to disable the Source and Reviews tabs when Project Links are not configured. If you still wish to disable the Source and Reviews tabs for a specific project, for example for one that has no relation to source code, you should use project-level permissions. See How do I disable the FishEye tab panel for non-code projects?
- Changes to the diff view in the Changeset view
In order to facilitate file browsing, and to give a clearer interface to see all the modifications and comments on a particular file, we are now showing one file at a time in the Changeset view. You can use the file tree or the keyboard shortcuts to navigate between files.
