Atlassian presents version 3.2 of the Atlassian Connector for Eclipse.

What's new in this release?

  • We've significantly improved custom fields handling.
  • Several other improvements have been added.

Important Note when Upgrading

Since version 3.1, Atlassian Connector for Eclipse works with JIRA 5.0 and above.

If your JIRA server is running behind a reverse proxy, and the reverse proxy requires separate HTTP authentication, the credentials for the reverse proxy must match the credentials for JIRA.

For more details, please see version 3.1 release notes.

Don't have the Atlassian Connector for Eclipse yet?

You can install the connector directly from the Eclipse software updates manager or from a zipped archive. Follow our installation guide.

We love your feedback!

Highlights of this Release

Improved custom fields handling

We have significantly improved custom fields handling:

  • Empty custom fields are displayed in the issue editor and it is possible to set their values directly from Eclipse. 
  • Support for custom fields has been significantly extended. Here is the complete list of supported custom fields (display and edit mode):
    • Free Text Field
    • Text Field
    • URL Field
    • Date Picker (unset is not supported)
    • Date Time (unset is not supported, minutes are not displayed)
    • Number Field (unset is not supported)
    • Multi User Picker
    • User Picker
    • Select List
    • Radio Buttons
    • Multi Select
    • Multi Checkboxes
    • Labels
    • Group Picker
    • Multi Group Picker
  • Several other issues related to custom fields have been fixed. Please see the complete list of fixes below.

Unset is not supported

Unset operation is not supported for Date Picker, Date Time and Number Field.
Once the value is set, you can change it, but is not possible to clear the value and make the field empty. That is the limitation of JIRA REST Client.

  • Archived versions are no longer cluttering selection lists: PLE-928, PLE-1374 
  • Tasks list can be sorted using GreenHopper Rank field: PLE-1368
  • Stacktrace detector has been fixed and improved: PLE-1418, PLE-1359
