    Identify meaningful changes made in a ticket Description in diff format

    Identify meaningful changes made in a ticket Description in diff format

    Identify meaningful changes made in a ticket Description in diff format

    Organize and retain only meaningful changes

    Clean unified diff view of changes made

    Configure availability on a per project basis

    This way of visualization makes it easier to analyse only major alterations made to a description.

    Now it is more comfortable to analyse the differences between an old and a new version. The changes are presented via standard unified diff with Wiki markup formatting.

    Not each and every project in Jira has issues with considerable description size. Make "Description History" available only for relevant projects and configure interval to group changes and text field to compare

    More details

    JIRA users edit ticket descriptions for a variety of reasons. Tracking changes via the regular history tab becomes increasingly more complicated with the frequency and size of changes being made, especially for issues with long formal task assignments in their description.

    Our solution is a clean and straightforward way to identify and act on changes made in the Description field of an issue:

    • It starts by extracting information about changes in the configured text field (Description is default) from the History tab.
    • Then the tool filters out changes made by a single author in configurable time frames (default is one hour), keeping and showing only meaningful changes.
    • The result is displayed in a convenient UI in a unified diff format and supports Wiki markup editing.

    Now, it is easier to discern meaningful differences in an issue description field making life less stressful for project managers and functional analysts since they can now clearly identify and track changes.

    This plugin is very helpful! Just like on a versioning system, you can: - See who updated you ticket description - What has been removed, added, updated from the original description - When changes have been made Also, it wasn't working when we first installed it in our old Jira version. The team has been super reactive and released a fix within a working day. That's what I call professionalism and, even though they offer it for free, customer focused!

    After installation we try to activate (enable) this plugin for a project in jira. Jira returns an error: Settings for Enable not saved. - 405: Method Not Allowed After changing the method for enabling the addon and fixing some additional issues, the addon works fine. So changes in description of jira issues now can be displayed in a clear form. So it supports displaying changes in description very well.
