The Problem

Auditor for Jira solves the problem of the lack of information about past actions performed by multiple Jira administrators.

Today Jira doesn't provide complete audit trail for administrative events. Some limited auditing is available, but it's far from perfect and is lacking in many areas. For most changes there is no easy way to find out which administrator made which change and when.

Someone deleted an issue? Backup was restored? Your default scheme parameters changed affecting all your projects? Plugin was disabled? Custom field was added to all projects for some reason? User's password was reset? Mail server configuration was updated, and now no mail gets sent? Somebody changed workflow, and things don't work as expected? - If any of this happens in Jira today, you don't know who made the change, when they did it, and can't ask them why.

The Solution

Auditor for Jira is an easily installable Jira plug-in that resolves the problems described above. It tracks all events performed by administrators and stores information about them in the comprehensive audit log. Whenever something unexpected happens, you can search the log and see who and when made the change. Knowing that, you can discuss the issue with this person and find out whether the change was legitimate or done by mistake. This makes your work much easier and puts all your Jira administration under control.
