What is the new permission requirement for in the 2020-07-17 release of ARN?

The latest update for Automated Release Notes for Jira (2020-07-17) requires a permission change to allow it act on behalf of a user even when they are offline.

What is this for?

Also, when we update, will it preserve current content (rules, templates, etc) ?

@erin_quick-laughlin thanks for asking. This scope change is needed for ARN to check if a user has Jira admin permissions or not. Since there is a screen specifically meant for Jira admins, we have added this check. (the screen was already there, but the permission check wasn't).

Also, the update won't impact your rules/templates etc in any way. 
Hope that helps.

If you have any other questions, do reach out on our service desk.


I did encounter a temporary loss of access - maybe 5-15 minutes - I assume this was some sort of permissions propagation?
