Is there a way to disable this Whats New pop-up for specific users? Can anyone provide the DB table and column which stores this disable/enable flag for the popup for a user?
There are some customer we have for whome the links on the Whats-New page are blocked. So we want to block the popup for such users.
I do not want to completely disable the 'JIRA Welcome Plugin' as it is still useful for our regular users.
System Config: JIRA 6.1.9, Oracle Database
Any pointers would be helpful.
The welcome plugin uses a user preference to indicate that the whatsnew dialog has already been dismissed. It has the key
"jira.user.welcome.dismissed". There is also a REST endpoint that you can use to set it explicitly, and if you set it to
"true" for a given user, then that should suppress the dialog.
There may be some events (like major version upgrades) that will clear this, however.
Ultimately, user preferences are stored in a property set, so at the database level, it would mean two rows: 1. A propertyentry with entity_name='ApplicationUser', entity_id=(SELECT id FROM app_user WHERE lower_user_name='username_in_lowercase'), property_key='jira.user.welcome.dismissed', and propertytype=1 2. A propertynumber with the same ID as the propertyentry and a propertyvalue of 1 for true or 0 for false
As far as I'm aware, there isn't one. User preferences are meant to keep track of... well... that user's preferences. You can change your own preferences using the endpoint at /rest/api/2/mypreferences but fiddling with another user's preferences is not something that was anticipated when that endpoint was created.
