Story Quality Add-On for JIRA - Compatibility with JIRA 7.x

The header at https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.patrikvarga.jira.storyquality/server/overview says 'for JIRA Server 6.0 - 6.4.14', while the latest version Version 1.0.2 Summary says 'Java 7 compatibility'. Is the add-on compatible with Jira server 7.x? Thanks for your feedback.

The overview there is what the vendor's current official line is.

So, no, it's not compatible (yet).  You could try installing it, but there's every chance it will fail, and possibly cause damage, so I would not recommend it.

Hi Anne,

 

indeed JIRA 7 is not supported yet. You can expect JIRA 7 compatibility in a next version coming relatively soon, as I am already working on it. However, I cannot give any specific timeline.

 

Note that the "7" in "Java 7 compatibility" is referring to JRE version, not JIRA version, so it means that the add-on will work in JIRA 6 running on any of JRE 7 or JRE 8 (which explicitly needed changes in 1.0.2, thus the release notes).

 

Also, as Nic said, the add-on (up to the current version, 1.0.2) will fail in JIRA 7 even if you manage to install it somehow. This is due to incompatible Java API changes from JIRA 6 to JIRA 7.

 

Regards, Patrik (add-on developer)
