    Hello Will this plugin will be suitable with Jira server 7.4.2?

    I'm afraid it's only going to happen when my client is ready to upgrade to 5.1 (I would guess within 2-3 months), or the unlikely event that someone pays me. Or, someone else does it.

    Hi Jamie, Are you going to make it available for Jira v7.2.2 anytime soon? Thank you in advance.

    Hi, will this become compatible with JIRA Server 7.1.X versions? We rely on this for workflow management.

    Did you try it in 7.1? It might work...

    Hi, It's really very useful, but why this add-on would stop automatically? Admin should manually restart this add-on. It happened a few times. Could you help us?
