The Jira Cloud add-in for Outlook was working just fine last week. Now the Outlook client is showing a blank panel where the Jira form used to show up. See image below.
Strangely enough, it works fine on outlook.office.com.
This is happening for all of my colleagues. Is there a way to determine if this could be a client issue? A permissions issue? There's no problem in adding or removing the plugin.
What I can't figure out is, if the client is restricted why does the online version work?
I'm using Outlook 365.
This is my Outlook version, below:
Thank you for reporting this problem! We have identified the root cause and trying to fix it as soon as possible. I will let you know here when the fix is applied.
Meanwhile, as a workaround, you can use either the Outlook Web App (as you mentioned, it works for you) or update Outlook to the latest version. Starting from version 13530.20424, Outlook uses the new Chromium-based Edge browser to view Jira Cloud for Outlook add-in. This new Edge browser doesn't have such problem. Here you can read more about Outlook versions and which browser they use to render add-ins.
@steve-g-yk the way how it works is each Outlook version might have a dependency on different browsers. Really old versions of Outlook used Internet Explorer 11, then they switched to their Edge browser and later to the new Chromium-based Edge browser.
Unfortunately, Outlook doesn't use your default browser to view add-ins.
It seems like your Outlook version still uses the old Edge browser, which will be deprecated on January 15, 2023. You might not see it as installed in your apps, but it might still be installed partially.
The only way to make Outlook switch to the newer Chromium-based Edge browser is to update Outlook to at least version 13530.20424 or the latest version.
Once the old Edge browser is deprecated by Microsoft, at some point, we will stop supporting it in Jira Cloud for Outlook as well, and then you will need to update to the newer Outlook anyway. The date is still TBD.
