JIRA 5.0.2 Release Notes


2 April 2012

Upgrading from a previous version of JIRA

If you are upgrading, please read the JIRA 5.0.2 Upgrade Notes.

Further Administration user interface improvements

Continuing on with improvements to the Administration User Interface (UI) in earlier JIRA releases, JIRA 5.0.2 improves the Administration UI further with a redesign of the pages for administering issue types, including a more streamlined configuration process for adding field configurations and screens.

The original 'sub-tab' for adding issue type schemes has been converted to a full tab on the left of the JIRA UI and the form for adding an issue type scheme is now a dialog box, which is easily accessed by clicking the Add Issue Type Scheme button at the top-right of the Issue Type Scheme page.

Whenever you add a field configuration (+ scheme) or a screen, screen scheme or issue type screen scheme, JIRA will take you directly to the pages for configuring any of these newly created entities, thereby saving you the need to locate such an entity in a list and click its Configure link. This is especially useful for customers with highly configured JIRA installations that contain extensive lists of these entities.

Performance Improvement

JIRA 5.0.2 includes an important performance fix:

  • JRA-27402 - SearchProvider.searchCount uses a TopDocCollector Resolved

Searches that retrieve many thousands of issues are performed more rapidly.
