JIRA 6.3.11 Release Notes
25 November 2014The Atlassian JIRA team is proud to announce the release of JIRA 6.3.11. This point release contains several updates and fixes, and we've also included a new feature to assist in our current drive for development tool integration.
"Deduping" of branch creation events for JIRA workflow triggers
Previously, JIRA workflow triggers would transition issues incorrectly, if duplicate branch creation events were sent (duplicate branch creation events are often caused by having a repository indexed by multiple development tools). To ensure accurate issue transitions, you would need to suppress events in selected repositories in Stash and/or FishEye.
In this release, JIRA will remove duplicate branch creation events ("deduping") when processing workflow triggers. The deduping is done by comparing branch names. This makes it much simpler for you to configure workflow triggers, as you don't need to figure out which repositories need to have their events suppressed.
Note, if you don't want JIRA to remove duplicate branch creation events, you can disable deduping: see this knowledge base article. Also, please note that as a result of this improvement, we will be removing the 'JIRA workflow triggers' configuration options from FishEye and Stash in future versions of these products. Keep on eye on the Stash release notes and FishEye release notes for updates.
Upgrading to JIRA 6.3.11 is free to all customers with active JIRA software maintenance.
