    Make the commit, branch, and pull request tracking case insensitive.

    Unfortunately it doesn't work properly. New Smart Commits syntax is different from the previous one and now old tickets lost the development information because jira issue ID was in lowercase, and now it has to be in uppercase and only in the PR name, information in PR description is not taken into consideration. Very disappointed as we use this information and it's too much time to spend to manually edit all the PRs.

    Doesn't work after migration. I tried remove app from both jira and github sides and install from scratch. Still same thing. It just doesn't work. Update: 11/01/2019 It does work. But you have to wait longer until status in Jira will be COMPLETED and not just ACTIVE. Which is very confusing because I assume ACTIVE is actually means add-on activated.

    Configuration was really painful with a lot of redirections, half of them not working, and a lot of delays. I haven't tested thoroughly yet but it seems that tickets in Jira now have links to the branches, commits and pull requests.
