Guardrails built-in scripts have just been released!

To help you turn best practice into action in just a few quick clicks, we’ve released five new built-in scripts within ScriptRunner for Jira in line with Atlassian’s Guardrails for comments, project archiving, change history, attachments and issue links. Administrators can now implement Atlassian’s recommendations using easily-configurable ScriptRunner power. Keep reading to find out how–plus some helpful hints for handling Atlassian’s Guardrail for epics using ScriptRunner!

    Jira 9 compatibility

    Your feedback in action

    One of our awesome users gave us a wish-list feature to save time when switching users. We’re delighted to share that Administrators can now quickly switch user when hovering over a user profile within an issue or in the User management space. Previously admins could only switch user through the Switch User built-in script. Could your wish be granted next?

Migration process: ScriptRunner from Jira Server to Data Center

Did you know that everything the Server version of the app can do, the Data Center version can too? When it comes to migrating to Jira Data Center, there are two main types of migration:

  • Non-clustered: this is as simple as updating your Jira license, along with all of your app licenses (including ScriptRunner)
  • Clustered: this option requires setting up additional application nodes, and also involves moving your Jira home directory to a shared location accessible by all nodes. Full details of steps involved and potential gotchas to look out for can be found via the button below.

    If you would like to find out more about Atlassian Data Center migration, check out Atlassian's handy Data Center migration guide.
