Find conditions & post-functions where JMWE is used

Q to JWME gurus - is there a quick way to find out where JWME is used across the workflows? Hypothetically with JWME going commercial - there might be a few orgs willing to disable this add-on in a least destructive way. (short of checking every workflow step)

thanks!

I might be shooting ourselves in the foot here but the answer is actually quite simple.

The easiest is to search inside your workflow XMLs for the following string:

<arg name="class.name">com.innovalog.jmwe.plugins

You can access the XML of your workflows either through the JIRA workflow administration page, or directly inside the jiraworkflows table inside your database.

If you have numerous workflows, instead of downloading their XML one by one, you can also search within a JIRA backup. You should simply unzip the backup and search within the entities.xm file for the string mentioned above.

Note that I fully understand that some JMWE users will not be willing to have to pay now for a plugin they've been using for free for the last five years. The main driver behind our decision to move this plugin to the "pay-via-Atlassian" model, which we'd been postponing for more than a year, is the vastly increased level of support we've had to provide to our users, as well as the investment we had to make to port the plugin to JIRA 6 (which introduced major API changes).

We believe, and hope, that the price we've set, around 10% of the price of a JIRA license, will be acceptable for most of our users.

Regards,

David.

all fair points - thanks!
