JIRA 7.3 and better error reporting

Improving version 2 of Project Configurator
Hi again, after some months of silence. This did not mean lack of activity, on the contrary, after the release of version 2.0 the support activity has been very intense.

The next generation of Project Configurator is here

Export your project with Project Configurator for JIRA
A good practice to keep clean and optimized our Jira is to have an instance for testing, in this instance we can make any changes or testing without fear of interfering in the performance of our team, after completing the tests we can implement these changes on the production instance with the assurance that we will not include those aspects with undesirable results.
Advantages of Project Configurator for JIRA
As administrators of JIRA, we are always looking for the most efficient and effective way to manage our projects. Continuously, we make changes in the configuration of each project, we customize fields, we create workflows, schemes, statuses, users, roles, groups, among other objects. Administrators must be careful about these modifications. Each change must be verified in a test instance before it is launched in the production instance.

Drafts for workflows and workflow schemes
The last version of Project Configurator (v 1.13-JX), released last week, is focused on draft management for workflows and workflow schemes. From the end user point of view, its most relevant feature is the option to publish those drafts automatically. This feature will publish draft workflows and draft workflow schemes that have been created during the import, unless user input is required to map statuses of existing issues under the new workflow scheme.
Changes in the user interface
Early this week we have released versions 1.12-J6 and 1.12-J7 of Project Configurator. The main addition in these versions is an important improvement of the user interface, both for exporting and importing configurations.
Three years ago, on February 27th 2013, the first version of Project Configurator was published in the Atlassian Marketplace. These three years have been incredible. The product itself has evolved a lot in terms of functionality, error handling, robustness…even though the user interface is quite similar to the original.
Better mapping of users
Yesterday we released versions 1.11-J6 and 1.11-J7 of Project Configurator. These versions include a change that will improve very much how users are transferred between instances. This change is explained in greater detail in issue PCP-396.
We have recently released versions 1.9 of Project Configurator. The most outstanding feature in the new version is the support for workflow layouts. This means that now, when a workflow is imported, its layout will be the same as it was in the source instance.
