Are there changes to JIRA "Release Notes Report" when upgrading JIRA from 4.4.x to 5.1.x?

Before upgrading from JIRA 4.4.x to 5.1.x, we're using "Release Notes Report" to list issues grouped by fixVersions, and, in each fixVersion, grouped by issue types.

However, after the upgrade the report, instead of listing the issues, it only shows the amount of issues in each issue type only (See capture attached).

Could you please suggest if there are any ways to create "Release Notes Report" like it was in JIRA 4.4.x?

Which plugin are you using to do this?

Hi Nic, thank you very much for your prompt help. It's a report available for chosen when I open Project Summary page. I'm not sure if it's a plug-in.

Ok, I'm pretty sure it's a plugin - the release notes in my Jira installations don't offer you options, and there's nothing for releases under the reports menu on the summaries.

Go to Admin -> Plugins and have a look for "user installed plugins" - that should tell you what none-core plugins are installed, and probably give you some contact details for the report too. (Of course, we can hope someone else here recognises it and can help, but I suspect you need the plugin rebuilt)

Unfortunately I don't have an admin role in JIRA system so I have asked the admin team and found that this feature is a "system plug-in" which is bundled with JIRA 5.1 installation. I'm checking with admin team if they can rollback the version as this current "Release Notes Report" doesn't quite serve need from the user

Mmm, it's not a "system" plugin because it's not part of the standard Jira installation. But yes, you've done the right thing in asking your admins to install a different version.
