JMWE's new Transitions tab option gives users a precise view of transitions and if you are using this app, it is enabled by default. However, some older Jira Cloud instances might show a second "old view" Transitions tab. This is a legacy tab originally provided by Jira Suite Utilities (JSU).
To avoid confusing your users with two similar options, you might want to disable one of the tabs. But which one should you keep?
JMWE shows a more accurate history of transitions. Here how these two tabs compare:
The JMWE's transitions history tab (a feature of JMWE) is better organized from the user perspective and shows more precise details. It lists all transitions, in the order in which they were triggered, with the time of their execution.
The legacy tab instead displays how many times the transition was executed. As a consequence, it only displays the date and author of the last transition between the same statuses, not all of them. The legacy tab also omits to display the issue creation, but the JMWE tab will show you when any activity took place.
If you have both tabs, you have an opportunity to compare the two in real life. JMWE-powered displays the logo at the bottom of the tab. Of course, you have the option of retiring the legacy transition history tab provided by Jira Cloud or disabling the JMWE transitions tab on the configuration page of the app.
I have the two Transitions activity tabs displayed in Jira Server. I am running 6.2.4 of JMWE with Jira Server 8.5.3.
How do I disable the legacy Transitions tab on the Server?
