      Atlassian Update – 12 September 2019

      Dear Jira users,

      Thank you for your votes and thoughts on this issue.

      Recently we have been working on improving the apps management in Jira Server by addressing one of the most impactful bugs: JRASERVER-64908.

      From Jira Server 8.2.0 we’ve fixed several issues that caused huge performance degradation in large Jira instances when installing or updating apps.

      After carefully analysing your comments in this ticket, we see that the negative performance impact of installing and updating apps is a major part of this issue. Moreover after the changes made to UPM plugin based on internal tests we see that app downtime is reduced. For example:

      • on Portfolio example restart time decreased significantly, from 4min to 12sec.
      • UPM upgrade time decreased from 10min to 30sec.

      While the described behaviour is expect due to UPM dependency, we believe we largely mitigated the problem described in this ticket, that is why we decided to close it with resolution: answered.

      We are currently thinking about further improvements to Apps management in Jira Server and we would like to get more clarity about the problem space. If we will leave this ticket open, we will not be able to judge easily what is the biggest challenge for our customers, what we should prioritise next in this area?

      That is why we have created the following suggestions and would like to hear your voice there or in comments to this issue.

      Our suggestions based on your comments in this issue are:

      https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-69963

      Looking forward for your comments.

      Description

      Experienced behavior

      Updating UPM causes JIRA Software and required bundled plugins to temporarily disable, resulting in unexpected behavior. JIRA cannot be used properly during this time.

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Install JIRA Software 7.3.4
      2. Update UPM to 2.22.2 or 2.22.3
      3. Access dashboard while UPM is updating

      During UPM update JIRA Software and required bundled plugins will be temporarily disabled:

      Disabled bundled plugins result in unexpected behavior.

      • Example: com.atlassian.jira.gadgets being disabled will result in 500 error when loading dashboards:

      Any problems are temporary. JIRA Software and bundled plugins will re-enable once UPM update is complete. This may take multiple minutes.

      Workaround

      Do not update UPM in production JIRA applications outside of planned maintenance windows. As a best practice test updates to plugins, including UPM, in a test or staging environment prior to updating production.
      See related Best Practices for Managing JIRA Application Add-ons

      Additional details

      UPM update has been tested with JIRA Core, JIRA Software and JIRA Service Desk. Required bundled plugins are only disabled when JIRA Software is present.

      • UPM update after installing JIRA Software onto an existing JIRA installation will not result in this problem unless JIRA has been restarted after installing JIRA Software and before updating UPM.
