DateFieldValuesGenerator missing in 7.3?

Hi everyone

We have a jira-plugin that uses com.atlassian.jira.charts.portlet.DateFieldValuesGenerator.

In Jira 7.0.11, this class was in jira-core: https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/7.0.11/com/atlassian/jira/charts/portlet/DateFieldValuesGenerator.html

With Jira 7.3, it moved to another package: https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/7.3.5/com/atlassian/jira/plugin/corereports/charts/portlet/DateFieldValuesGenerator.html

But we can't find it in jira-core. Was it moved to another dependency?

We couldn't find anything in the release/upgrade-notes.

Thanks

Sorry to hear we caused you troubles and broke your plugin. Unfortunately this class was inside jira-core and this was not intended for 3rd party usage. 

Changes on this class were part of internal refactoring and this class is now part of “Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Core Reports” plugin. This internal utility class is not exported from this plugin so there is no obvious way you can use it. 

Can you please provide more context on your use case here? 

Hi Adam

Thank you for responding.

Our users should be able to select a period for a given date field (analog to the jiras Time Since Report, but with selected dates).

We now search for datefield instances in our own ValuesGenerator class.

That works fine.
