I use JIRA TimeSheet Plugin and after latest upgrade to 2.3.6 I started to have difficulties with creating reports spanning over more than 2 months. It always failes with 'The "End Date" must not be later than 2 months.' message.
While leaving the "End Date" empty, the report is created without any problem from "Start Date" up to current date even if is spans over e.g. 6 months but trying to create report ending on different day than today always fails in such cases.
Is it some sort of new "feature" or just a bug? For our usecase (regular budget/effort reporting) it's absolutely necessary to be able to create summary reports for long time period - up to or even more than 1 year.
Is there some way around or some setting preventing this limitation?
Just after posting this question I found an answer here: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/TIME-169
There's a new property added into TimeSheet plugin v. 2.3.5 named "jira.timesheet.plugin.maxDays" which was introduced there to avoid crashing of JIRA due to out of memory problem in case of too huge reports. It's necessary to add this property to jira-home/jira-config.properties, e.g. to exted the max. reporting period to 3 months:
"jira.timesheet.plugin.maxDays = 90"
After modifying jira-config.properties you have to restart your JIRA to apply the config changes. I tried it and it worked.
For more information about JIRA configuration see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA050/Advanced+JIRA+Configuration
It is security feature, you just need to add the following property to jira-home/jira-config.properties and restart jira, if you want to set bigger limit, e.g. year:
jira.timesheet.plugin.maxDays = 360
Please see https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/TIME-169 for reference.
