Hello, Is there plans to update this plugin to a 'plugin 2' so that it can be installed via UPM and without a system restart?

Vendor response

There are no such plans at the moment. The problem is that I want to make the plugin work with all database drivers and I have not found a way to do that in an OSGi context.

SUPER AWESOME PLUGIN! It took me literally 16 minutes to install an configure to pull list of "customer names" from another system to extend the jira project we use for customer support. Im sure Ill come up with a hundred other uses for this.. HINT: When you change/update the configuration you may simply disable/enable plugin instead of restarting Jira :) Simply fantastic!

More details

This plugin for JIRA is a custom field that allows you to connect to an external database and fetch some values from there. After adding this custom field to an issue edit screen, you can select one of those values so it will be associated with the current issue.

You can choose how the values are rendered for viewing, editing and searching independently. For the editing, you can use a combobox (single select or cascading select) or an AJAX-style input field. Internally, the plugin will store only the primary key of the item you have selected, so you can safely edit things in your database, as long as you keep the primary key constant.
