JIRA leaks database connections while indexing





      A bug in JIRA, exposed by a certain version of the JIRA Toolkit plugin, will cause JIRA to leak database connections from the Database Connection Pool (DBCP) whilst indexing. This will result in an exhaustion of available connections in the DBCP and JIRA will not function as expected. It's the same behaviour as described in our JIRA Stops Functioning due to Timeout waiting for idle object KB article.

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Install JIRA toolkit 0.35.10 or higher.
      2. Create a "Last public comment date" custom field.
      3. Go to issue search and include this field as a column on the search.
      4. Run a search returning 50 or so issues (more than configured max connections in dbconfig.xml).

      Expected Results

      JIRA indexes as per normal without any failures.

      Actual Results

      The number of active connections in DBCP spikes and they are not released back into the connection pool. As a result of this the following exceptions will be thrown, affecting JIRA's functionality:
