1. Patch Release

This is a patch release based on Structure 5.2.1. It fixes a regression, introduced in version 5.2.0, which could manifest in the following:

  • Generators and synchronizers can produce partial or incorrect results when background re-index is in progress.
  • Synchronizers don't react to issue changes made by other synchronizers.

This version also improves compatibility with Portfolio 2.24 and Jira 8 and addresses the following issues:

  • Fixed: Parent Issue Grouper does not work with Portfolio 2.24.
  • Fixed: Issue fields with dropdowns are not editable from Gadget on Jira 8.
  • Fixed: NoSuchMethodException when flushing thread-local searchers.

Upgrade is recommended for all customers using Structure 5.2.x, Jira 8, or Portfolio 2.24.

2. Installation

If your Jira server does not have Structure yet, the installation is simple:

  1. Download and install the Structure add-on, either from Atlassian Marketplace or from our Download page. Pick the correct version based on your Jira version!
  2. When the Add-on Manager reports a successful installation, click Get Started to visit a page with important guidance for the Jira administrator. You may also want to check out the user's Get Started page, available under the "Structure" top-level menu.
  3. Monitor catalina.out or jira-application.log for log messages from Structure.

3. Upgrade

If you're upgrading from version 2.11.2 or earlier, please read Structure 3.0.0 Release Notes.

The upgrade procedure for versions 3.x to 5.2 is simple:

  1. Consider backing up Jira data. Use Administration | System | Backup System. Starting from version 3.0.0, Structure data can be backed up together with Jira data. (If you have a large instance and have a proper backup strategy in place, you may skip this step.)
  2. Install the new version of the plugin.

  3. Monitor catalina.out or jira-application.log for warnings or errors.

4. Enterprise Deployment Notes

Structure 5.2.2 does not introduce changes that could affect performance or would justify additional load and stress testing for Enterprise deployments.
