5th of May 2020Structure 5.1.1 is a security patch release.
1. Patch Release
This is a patch release based on Structure 5.1. We have addressed a security issue that affects all Structure versions starting with 3.5. Problem was fixed in the latest (6.0) Structure.
Upgrade is required for all Jira instances running Structure version 5.1 and using Jira 7.2.x.
You should have Structure license with active maintenance (expiring not earlier than May 6th, 2020) to upgrade.
If your JIRA server does not have Structure yet, the installation is simple:
- Download and install Structure add-on, either from Atlassian Marketplace or from Download page. Pick the correct version based on your Jira version!
- When the Add-on Manager reports about 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 "Structure" top-level menu.

If you're upgrading from version 2.11.2 or earlier, please read Structure 3.0.0 Release Notes.
The upgrade procedure from versions 3.x–5.1 is simple:
- Consider backing up Jira data. Use Administration | System | Backup System. (If you have a large instance and a proper backup strategy in place, you may skip this step.)
- Back up Structure data. Use Administration | Structure | Backup Structure menu item. If you have a lot of structures and a large Jira, consider turning off the "Backup History" option to avoid a long backup process.
Install the new version of the plugin.
