04 December 2020

Botron team is happy to announce the release of Configuration Manager for Jira 6.7.2!

Upgrading to Configuration Manager for Jira 6.7.2 is free for all customers.




Updates and Resolved Issues













  • Binary Snapshots: The snapshots created with Configuration Manager are now in binary format. Creating and deploying snapshots are now faster operations due to the new format of the snapshots.

  • Handling function parameters in JQL queries: You can now export all system functions in JQL(Jira Core, Jira Software, Service Desk) and the references in parameters will be handled.



  • Configuration Manager is now compatible with Jira 8.14 and Service Desk 4.14.

  • We’ve made improvements to the messaging when deploying snapshots created with an older version of Configuration Manager.

  • Power Admin 1.7.2



  • You can now recreate a snapshot canceled previously with the same name.

  • Configuration Manager now detects if a user/group creation has failed during deployment and doesn’t try to remove it on rollback.

  • We fixed a problem with showing Agile boards, filters and dashboards on the Preview Snapshot page of the deployment wizard.


Binary snapshots

Configuration Manager’s snapshot files are now in binary format. This new format allows you to download, upload and deploy snapshots faster. We’re also giving you a tool to convert binary snapshot files to XML and vise versa. You will find the converter in the Advanced Utilities page.
