New Features

  • Support for New Custom Field Types
  • Copy Reports From the Reports Directory
    • Make a copy of any report right from the Saved Reports directory using the new Copy Report menu item.
  • Automatic Totals of All Data Columns and Rows
    • Report data tables now automatically total up numeric columns in the table footer, and rows in the right-most table column. 
  • Optionally Display Data Values Within Charts
  • Full App Data Exports and Imports
    • Added ability to export and import all Dataplane app data to support administrators migrating Dataplane to a new Jira instance or wishing to make surgical changes to existing app data without having to use SQL commands.
  • Compatibility with AdoptOpenJDK 8 Java


  • Indexing Performance Improvements
    • Significant performance increase when doing full Dataplane index builds on Postgres, SQL Server and Oracle databases.
  • Performance Improvements in Processing Customizer Scripts
    • Improved responsiveness of running reports with Customizer Scripts.
  • Isolated Javascript Libraries from Conflict with Other Apps
    • A number of other Jira apps that bundle the same Javascript libraries as Dataplane would interfere with Dataplane's use of its own bundled libraries, causing a multitude of UI and functionality problems. Isolated Dataplane's bundled Javascript libraries to avoid conflicts with Tempo Timesheets, XpandIT Xporter, XpandIT Xray, apps from Deviniti and others.
  • Renamed Report Configuration Option "Issue Field" to "Value Of"
    • For clarity, this report configuration option is now consistently named across all report types. 


  • Stability Fixes

    • Fixed bug where upgrading from Jira 6.x to 7.x with an incompatible/old Jira Toolkit plugin caused Dataplane to not start up due to problems referencing Jira Toolkit custom fields.

    • Fixed Java memory leak that could occur under certain conditions when navigating to another web page from Jira Dashboards containing Dataplane gadgets.
    • Fixed condition where, under certain circumstances, exceeding available database connections could make Jira unresponsive.

    • Fixed condition managing database table resources which could result in a fatal app error: "Got SQL exception transforming JQL: the table arthash is full".
    • Fixed issue where lack of a primary key in the app's "artstatemap" database table was causing Percona MySQL replication problems. Added primary key to this table.
    • Fixed condition where database connection failures during app startup could cause the exception "ClassNotFoundException: oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver not found from bundle", break the cluster lock status, and force Dataplane to shut down.
  • Reporting Fixes
    • Fixed issue where, under certain conditions, Dataplane would miss indexing historical data for custom fields when those custom fields had translated field names. This was resulting in missing report data.
    • Fixed reporting bug in the Issue Values by Date report. That report displays all issue values during a given period, however certain values were being excluded if the value was different before the start of a reporting interval, and the value then changed on the first day of that reporting interval.
    • Fixed incorrectly calculated range axis values and missing chart data in grouped column charts, line charts and area charts when the report contained a Customizer Script.
  • Customizer Script Fixes
    • Fixed bug preventing users from addressing report data table columns uniquely within a Customizer Script when two table columns referenced the same Jira field, only distinguished by one displaying current values for the field and the other displaying historical values.
    • Fixed Customizer Script bug where certain Groovy statements referencing allowed data types would report a "SecurityException: Access denied to restricted type" error and prevent the Customizer Script from running.

    • Fixed bug in Closure Time and Resolution Time reports preventing users from re-titling report summary statistics (e.g. "Max Transition (h)") via Customizer Scripts.
  • Usability Fixes

    • Fixed bug where, if a user attempted to click through to the Jira Issue Navigator from a report data table, the action would fail if the supporting data was not yet generated.
    • Removed ability for users to right-click chart tooltip links to get to the Jira Issue Navigator, as the supporting data was inconsistently available.
    • Fixed Dataplane Administration page bug where the active zone for clicking on add/remove group buttons extended far outside the buttons.
