Add-on settings can't be saved when "SonarQube Connector for JIRA" is also installed.


Good day,

I am attempting to save configurations to disable the “Similar Issues Finder” tool for a project in OUR Jira. But when I make the change, click save (see attachment “Capture1”), and refresh the page, it reverts (see attachment “Capture2”). The same issue occurs when attempting to save the same changes on the add on configuration page (see attachment “Capture3”).

Troubleshooting done
• Confirmed this issue occurs on both the project configuration settings for the plugin (see attachment “Capture1”), as well as the add ons dedicated configuration page (see attachment “Capture2”).
• Confirmed that this issue occurs when attempting to make this change for any project in our Jira.
• Confirmed this is not permissions related as I am a global admin and can make any changes in Jira.
• Confirmed this is not browser related by using two different browsers (Chome and Firefox) and clearing my cache before trying again.

Plugin Information for our Instance
• Installed version: 1.18.1
• Available version: 1.20.1
• License SEN: SEN-10871266

Please let me know if any additional information is needed or if there is some step I am not completing.

Hi Deniz,

I truly appreciate you looking into this and finding the add on causing problems. Ill was added to the ticket for SonarCube so I will keep an eye on it. In the mean time we will work around the problem on our side.

Thanks again!

We are also changing our button id, so that even other vendor implements a fix for this, it will not be a problem in the future.

Hi Thomas,
Sorry, it took longer than it should. I found the problem. It is caused by "SonarQube Connector for JIRA" add-on. If you disable it temporarily, refresh similar issues finder configuration page (SHIFT+F5) you will able to save add-on setting. "SonarQube Connector for JIRA" overriding our save action. Normally an add-on should not load its JavaScript on other add-on's config pages but this add-on is using broader scope to load it's configuration. I have already created a support ticket in their system, . They don't allow sharing of requests so I could not add you directly but I have requested from them.

Hi Deniz,

My apologies. There was a problem on my end. I was able to replicated this problem in our staging environment as well. I attempted to save configurations for a single project and saving several times and reviewed logs but could not find anything pertaining to this problem.

In regards to our list of installed add ons, it is quite large so it is reasonable to guess there might be some conflict. I will pull all of the version numbers if it is needed, however I thought it best to start by seeing if your add on has any know compatibility issues.
