Write what you want to read

This blog contains articles about JIRA, the issue tracker from Atlassian. Most of the articles are technical in nature. If you have an article you would like to see appear here, please submit it to the editor, Matt Doar.


  1. I would like to read about how to add new tables to a jira database schema(jira properties tables are cool but when too much info needs to be added it gets a bit complicated.).
    Also a tutorial of a Listener would be nice, i followed the tutorial at and it works but shows no gadget functionality.

  2. Practical JIRA Plugins ( has a chapter about storing data, both using OSProperty and also the newer Active Objects plugin. I would recommend not adding tables manually, but instead use Active Objects for that.

    I've also added a comment to the event library page.

  3. Another thing that i would like to read is about An example of the JiraFisheyePlugin(, It looks like a very useful plugin but there is almost none documentation about how to use it, wich prerequisites are needed to use it and to provide a way to prove this plugin using the atlassian plugin sdk. I need to check how many changesets haves an issue and that plugin gots a ChangesetManager that makes exactly that.
