Highlights

New default workflow behaviour

In order to be able to start progress on an issue, a user must have the 'Assignable User' permission. When a user starts progress on an unassigned issue, the issue gets automatically assigned to that user. Similarly, any user with this permission can stop progress on an issue, although in this case the issue does not get reassigned to the user doing so.

This is different from the classic default JIRA workflow in the following ways:

  • Previously, when you started progress on an issue, it did not change the assignee to the current user. Whoever the assignee was at that time would remain as the issue's assignee.
  • In the classic default JIRA system workflow, only the issue assignee was able to execute the 'Start Progress' and 'Stop Progress' transitions. Now, as long as you have 'Assignable User' permission, you can execute this step.

Classic JIRA workflow available from Atlassian Marketplace

The classic default JIRA system workflow prior to this JIRA release is now available on Atlassian Marketplace.

If you import this workflow, you will need to add the 'Clear Resolution' post function back to the following three transitions:

  • Start Progress
  • Stop Progress
  • Reopen Issue

To add a new post function, see this procedure.

All newly created issues are now unassigned by default

The default for 'Allow Unassigned Issues' is set to ON for new instances. The 'Default Assignee' is set to 'Unassigned' when you create a new project, see Defining a Project for details.

Existing instances keep the current default ('Allow Unassigned Issues' is set to OFF).

JIRA Redmine Importer now available

The JIRA Redmine Importer plugin allows you to import data from the Redmine Issue Tracker product into your local JIRA site. For more information, see Importing Data from Redmine.

Important Fixes

  • We have improved the performance of the JIRA issue collector (see JRA-31971 - Issue collector causes performance issues on host JIRA instance Resolved ). Please be aware, if you edit an issue collector (e.g. change the trigger), there may be a delay of up to an hour until users see the updated issue collector in the target system, due to browser caching. Alternatively, the user can refresh the page in their browser to see the updated issue collector immediately.
  • The date/time picker for JIRA now works correctly on all browsers (see JRA-26265 - Date Time custom field doesn't calculate current time Resolved ).
  • There are a few minor security (XSS/XSRF) fixes in this release. Please see the list of fixes below for details.
