Hi! Love to use the app more but it keeps crashing and use a ton of CPU on whatever OS I use.

Currently Big Sur 11.1

MacBook Pro late 2015 

I have the newest version of Jira

Version 120.0.0 (120.0.807)

@Carlos Khatchikian My app has been crashing repeatedly for a couple of weeks now. I sent an email.

Hey Sean, one of the devs sent an email... we saw your email but we need more data to assess the problem

When the Jira App crashes on launch it usually means that there might be some corrupted file in the filesystem.

You can delete the cache data running this command in your terminal:

rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.atlassian.jira.mac/Data/Library/Caches

If that doesn't work you can delete the entire folder like this:

rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.atlassian.jira.mac

That should cleanup everything and you might need to re-login. 

Worked well from me after deleting  ~/Library/Containers/com.atlassian.jira.mac folder
