- Previous app versions only provided single-line input controls for the "To" and "Email body" fields of "Send Excel" action. Now resizable multi-line controls are available.
Bye-bye "Excel Automation Plugin for Jira"! Hello "Better Excel Automation for Jira"!
In addition to some cosmetic changes, with this version we made a slight adjustment in the app's name due to the following reasons:
You may still see the old name popping up here and there, until we roll out the change everywhere. Thanks for the patience!
Code Barrel took over the old Automation Plugin for Jira from Atlassian in March 2017 and renamed it to Automation Lite for Jira. Its latest release 3.0.0 is built from their next generation codebase, which is the same codebase that is the foundation of Code Barrel's paid automation add-on called Automation for Jira.
Excel Automation Plugin for Jira supports both the old Automation Lite codebase and the new one, but you must be careful about the versions.
This new automation action allows generating Excel spreadsheets periodically or by triggered by issue events (created, updated, transitioned, work logged, etc.) and then attaching the resulted file to a Jira issue. The target issue can be the one which triggered the automation, or another one selected by a JQL query!
This realease fully supports Jira Data Center, enabling automation in clustered Jira deployments.
More robust installation
Previous add-on versions may have had class-loading issues right after installation or version update. This release comes with rewamped OSGi dependency management, to prevent those issues.
This is a compatibility release for Jira 7, also maintaining compatibility with the Jira 6 line.
