If set to true - you may open several New Issue windows. Next invocation of "New Issue" action opens one more New Issue window.

Affected actions: New Issue, New Issue Here, New Sub-Task.

build 9204.136 and later

If set to true (default) Assignee editor shows only assignable users.
If set to false - Assignee editor shows all known users including not assignable.

Use the option if you have many assignable users on your server and the list of assignable users is cut off at some position (generally only first 50 assignable users are available).

workflow.resolve.defaultResolutionTextJIRAClient 3.6 hf 138
Build 9204.138 and later

Name of default resolution. This option used to choose default value for Resolution field.
If no value is specified JIRAClient searches for resolution named "Fixed" ("Fixed" translated to supported languages).
If the value is specified JIRAClient selects resolution with specified name (case is ignored).

Example: If desired default resolution name is "Shipped" set workflow.resolve.defaultResolution=shipped.

jiraclient.comment.htmltrue/falsefalseJIRAClient 3.6.2 hf 168
Build 9204.168 and later 
If set to true JIRAClient removes HTML tags from comment text. The default false value means that JIRAClient shows comment texts as is (as they are downloaded from server).
This option may be helpful when JEditor plugin is installed on server. JEditor plugin inserts HTML tags into the comments, this makes comments hard to read.
This option may slow down issue loading into issue table.
Note: This optional does not render HTML, it just removes HTML tags from text - this makes texts easier to read.

jira.sprint.removeClosedtrue/falsetrueJIRAClient 3.8.1 hf 38

If set to false, JC does not remove closed Sprints on Reload JIRA Configuration. The consequences are:

  1. Closed Sprint are not removed. Distribution by Sprint does not disappear (when no Open Sprint)
  2. JC will keep Sprints forever, there is no way to remove a Sprint from JC's cache.
