Every page I load in the evaluation (download) version of Jira my broweser is saying "Waiting on id.atlassian.com...". Why is this happening? Is this some kind of eval tracking? Is this in the licensed version? It is slowing down page accesses, and raises privacy concerns, the main reason for going with the download version.
The "Feedback" button in evaluation versions of Jira (and also early access versions) is what is generating the traffic. Turning it off greatly speeded up page loads and there is no outside traffic generated. I was pointed (promptly I might add) to this page describing how to turn it off:
I downloaded the most recent version of the JIRA evaluation, and so far I am unable to reproduce. I even removed myself from the network, and it did not appear as though I was accessing id.atlassian.com
When setting up your eval, did you register with an Atlassian ID account? Were you able to access the Dashboard, or set up any projects yet?
It is quite obvious here, say I click on the "Issues" tab on the left in a project, the page loads and the waiting for id.atlassian.com message displays for about 5 seconds.
And yes, I set it up with an Atlassian account.
