    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?
