Version 1.1.2 - December 8, 2012

This release provides a number of important improvements.

First of all Jira Auditor started to perform better for Jira instances in languages other than English. Previously we had some problems with tracking a part of events for non-English localizations but now that is completely resolved.

Another important fix is making screen tabs changes (adding, renaming and deleting) tracking work fine in Jira 5.

Finally, we made a change to the manu item for Jira Auditor. Now instead of 'Audit Log' it reads 'Audit Log (Jira Auditor)' to prevent mixing it up with the plugin audit log available in Jira.

Version 1.1.1 - August 26, 2012

Fixed several small issues with the newest Jira 5.1.1, inculding a nasty bug with errors when starting watching an issue.

Version 1.1.0 - February 24, 2012

Jira Auditor is now compatible with Jira 5!

Version 1.0.7 - January 25, 2012

We finally released a long-awaited feature. From now on you will be able to configure access rights to the audit log and decide whether you want to give access to all administrators (jira-administrators and jira-system-administrators) or restrict it to system administrators (jira-system-administrators) only. Configuration option is available in plugin configuration.

Version 1.0.6 - January 17, 2012

This release mostly deals with fixes for Jira 4.4.x. We recommend you to upgrade if you use this version.

The major feature is support for tracking the new way of setting project roles (via plugin) added.

Fixed problem with tracking plugin modules enabling/disabling.

Fixed problem with project settings update tracking.

Fixed problem with field screen tab removal tracking.

Version 1.0.5 - October 31, 2011

This release contains minor improvements and two important fixes. We recommend that you upgrade to this version as soon as possible.

There was a bug in the way version 1.0.4 dealt with Atlassian's UPM. That caused some actions you do via UPM to fail. This is fixed now and you can safely use Jira Auditor with UPM.

Jira Auditor now honors global permission scheme now in regards to access rights for its reports and configuration. Now you don't have problems if you use custom administrators groups different from jira-administrators or jira-system-administrators.

Version 1.0.4 - July 26, 2011

This verion adds some more functionality to the application and also fixes an annoying bug.

Now jira-system-administrators group members are granted permissions to view log. Previously only jira-administrator members were given permissions for this.

A number of new events are tracked now:

  • User sign ups
  • Project categories changes and selection for projects
  • Time tracking settings changes
  • Mail servers configuration changes
  • Adding/removing listeners

We also changed the way of obtaining database connection to a more portable one.

Most of the new features in this release are our users requests. We encourage you to let us know if there is anything you miss.

Version 1.0.3 - June 12, 2011

Minor usability and performance tweaks to make the application more user-friendly.

Version 1.0.1 - Apr 20, 2011

Added tracking of Universal Plugin Manager events. This means that from now on when somebody enables or disables a plugin or plugin module this event can be seen in audit trail.
