How to (not) break Jira with bad scripts - Jamie Echlin, creator of ScriptRunner

Dallas-Fort Worth

October 10, 2019, 11:00 PM UTC – October 11, 2019, 2:00 AM UTC

Good Jira automation just stays out of the way and helps you get things done without thinking about it. But building good automation isn’t always easy, even when you go beyond Atlassian’s built-in capabilities and use add-ons.


About this event

Jamie Echlin, Adaptavist Staff engineer and creator of ScriptRunner, will talk about those situations where building automation in Jira can backfire. Running JQL functions in script fields, slow workflow condition functions, adding javascript to the announcement banner, inline scripts and endless loops are among the most common pitfalls for a Jira admin. Jamie will show you how to avoid them and will share some handy advice for building powerful automation in a responsible and scalable way.
