Summary of problem:
Has anyone out there experienced this problem and how have they prevented the loss of data ?
(Jira cloud instance)
Hi @Rob Crick
Reviewing older comments in community there maybe some workarounds but it doesn't seem like there is a complete way to stop it.
Many thanks @Clark Evans - yes got the same feedback via another channel too. Looks like a known issue that just needs more votes to push it along. In the mean time I think an improvement in the teams ways of working can help circumvent the occurrence.
Appreciate the time you took to reply
Hi @Rob Crick
It seems there is no way to prevent Jira issue from editing. But your data won`t be lost – you can always check what was updated in the issue history. If User 1 and User 2 have made some changes, it will record each of them.
Also, you can check the app from my team – Issue History for Jira. It's easy to monitor every team member's activity as it records everything in one report.
The data would not be lost, it will be saved in the history section of the issue.
Did you try to explore the changelog of an Issue?
Since the screens are not dynamic meaning when you open a screen it is not in any way connected to the server, so it cannot check the two/more users making the changes at a time.
Only when the user submits the issue changes, the server is contacted and it will be able to store the changes.
Check the history & let me know
Thanks @Pramodh M ,
yes can see the history log, the working practicality is that if the user doesn't know of an edit "clash" they won't go looking into the history log to confirm the correct save order.
So as per my reply to Clark a change in ways of working will need to be made to reduce the likely occurrence.
