I recently found out that the JIRA Misc Workflows plugin is moving from a free model to a paid model. Makes sense, people put in time and effort to create it, they should get paid. However, I only want to pay for it if I'm actually using it. I installed it when it was free, so I'm not sure if it was a "hey this might be cool" and I never used it, or if I did end up making use of some of the options.
Is there any way (short of crawling through every workflow, looking at conditions and post functions for each step, which is obviously not reasonable) to determine if any of my workflows use this plugin's features? I guess I could disable it and see what breaks, but that also is not ideal.
That sounds better than looking at every transition, but it's still somewhat painful to have to go into each workflow and export it as XML individually. Is there a way to do this in bulk? Maybe a full backup will get me that (and I just don't know where to look in the backup file)?
Although it might not be entirely relevant, but it does sounds like a good feature request to me :)
Please help to vote if you would like to see this to be implemented in the future.
At the mean time, one more thing that you can do is actually set up a test instance without the plugin, and try to run the transition. It will prompt you error if the functionality is not available :)
Hope this helps.
The easiest is to look inside your database if you have access to it.
I'm not sure using a full backup makes much sense as it will take a long time. But it will also work: just look for the following string in entities.xml:
This should match all usages of functions, validators and conditions that belong to the JMWE plugin.
