    Sadly this plugin does not work with the current JIRA 6.1.6 using the current plugin version 0.5.10. There is a NullPointerException being thrown while reindexing JIRA. The bug (https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/browse/JBHV-96) and it's variations (https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/browse/JBHV-204) are known for about 2.5 years now, but it seems there has been no solution yet. Very sad, because this plugin had some really promising features...

    This plugin is very useful and we would like to know when it will be compatible for the jira 6.2 release please? "Sorry for the precedent comment I let with the (wrong) rate because it was not my intention. I rarely put post there so i didn't really know about this system..."

    Hi Jamie, The plugin is very useful. But I found a serious bug for this plugin on "Make a field read-only except for a certain role". After set everything ok, the read-only users can't edit the constraint field by inline edit or by clicking "Edit" button to edit, but they CAN EDIT the constraint field by typying keyboard shotcut comma "," or dot "." to edit the constraint field. Could you help to take a look at this bug? Kindly Regards, Chengjiang

    Hi Jamie, i like your plugin and now i try to upgrade from jira 4.4 to jira 6.4. I read that this plugin is no more supported but i have to use ScriptRunner. Can you please explain what i have to do to migrate my behaviours and the configuration to ScriptRunner? If you do it in the past then please excuse my question and maybe you can give me a link? Thakns, michael

    Vendor response

    Hi Michael, There is nothing really to do. After the upgrade install the latest version of script runner. Make sure behaviour is uninstalled. Everything else should just work.

    More details

    This plugin simply installs a servlet that advises that the Behaviours plugin has merged with Script Runner for JIRA.

    Script Runner can be downloaded from the marketplace. Once done, this plugin should be uninstalled.
