I created an automcomplete custom field which takes values directly from Jira database which works well for Jira 7.10. This plugin use jQuery UI Autocomplete 1.8.11 and jQuery UI Position 1.8.11.
I'm trying now to update it for Jira 8.4.0, but I'm not able to get it work.
This is a snippet of atlassian-plugin.xml in which I load the JS libraries:
<!-- Autocomplete JS and CSS-->
<web-resource key="jquery.autocomplete.customfield" name="Script JS about autocomplete managment" >
<resource type="download" name="jquery-ui-custom-autocomplete.css" location="css/jquery-ui-custom-autocomplete.css" />
<resource type="download" name="jquery-custom-autocomplete.js" location="js/jquery-custom-autocomplete.js" />
<resource type="download" name="jquery-ui-custom-autocomplete.js" location="js/jquery-ui-custom-autocomplete.js" />
I also take a look at JDVP, but it seems too overcomplicated for my purpouses.
I have build a simple version of my plugin to understand how to create a working version of an autocomplete custom field in Jira 8.
You can find it here:
There are two releases by now, one that has a clean working simple text custom field and another one that have the JQuery library to add the autocomplete funcionality, that doesn't work.
It would be great if you can download and try by yourself to help me!
