Any Portfolio add-on uninstall issues

We're evaluating the Portfolio for JIRA add-on for our installation (server) and would like to put it in on our production instance to have real up-to-date data to try it out. Any known issues uninstalling the add-on should we choose to or does it do a clean uninstall? (Noticed there were some articles about some other add-ons leaving custom fields and objects behind after uninstall.)

Thanks,

Peter

When installing a JIRA add-on that add-on created table/tables in the database along with installing the add-on jar.

To see db tables: https://your.jira.com/plugins/servlet/active-objects/tables/list

To see jar file: /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/plugins/installed-plugins

When uninstalling an add-on the jar file is removed but the database tables are not removed.

There is very small risk especially for an add-on created by Atlassian to have a bad effect on our JIRA after uninstalling it.

(I have done this on several of JIRA envs and did not encounter any problems after uninstalling/disabling)
