Thanks. This will help. I am a SQL DBA. I noticed that on the field types, you have varchar. is there a reason you are not using nvarchar for unicode/international characters?

You'd need to ask an Atlassian developer with knowledge of the back-end.

I do some dev work in plugins, but I never go to the database, I use the API (if you think you need to read a Jira database in your code, you're probably doing something wrong. And you never write)


Thanks. No we are not doing updates to the JIRA db. I would like to see what it has in it - most likely not doing an reads from it. If we were, then it would be something incredilby custom.

Hi Mark, the information that we have available is in this doc. It also has instructions on how you can generate the database schema information in different formats.

I hope it helps.
