Is the JIRA SU plugin compatible with JIRA 5.1?


Does anyone know if the JIRA SU plugin is compatible with JIRA 5.1? It's not officially listed as compatible, but I wondered if anyone has tried it on 5.1 and had any issues or not?

OK, JIRA SU 1.3.8 released with a SU-exit timeout of 5minutes, p.s. also compatible with JIRA 5.1

Thanks Andy.Will give 1.3.8 a go.

Ok, got around to installing a test JIRA 5.1 system and installed an eval of JIRA SU 1.3.7.

Most of it looks ok, but the "SU Exit" menu item disappears after you've browsed as the SU'ed user for a bit. I've tried to record a definite set of steps that make the menu item disappear, but it's a bit random - I thought it was when I went to Administration -> Projects, but on later tests the menu item remained after those selections, but disappeared when I browsed to Issues -> Search for Issues.

I've never used the SU plugin on 5.0.x as I'm looking at an upgrade to 5.1 from 4.4.4 which uses JIRA SU 1.2.2 and I believe the SU Exit functionality was only added in 1.3.2? So I'm not sure if this is a 5.1 issue or if the SU Exit functionality has always disappeared?


Hi Andrew, the 'dissapearing' exit button is a designed in security feature as part of 5.x updates, but it ought to be around for 5minutes, I'll dig.
