Today I answered a question on the @atlassian #community and the moment I pressed the submit button I noticed something. There is a count on the right hand that shows the number of posts, which changed from 999 to 1000. There was no loud bang or colourful animation but it felt so good. Some statistics as of 28th December 2020 Likes received: 311 Likes given: 183 Answers submitted: 611 Total posts: 1,000 Question asked: 1 What is Atlassian Community? It is a place where you can ask questions and help others around Atlassian tools. People who are super active and answer lot of questions (like me) are called Community Leaders but anyone can post answers. It is a great place to seek information which might not be easily available in the official documentation. Benefits of posting…

My biggest challenge I think is to organise my content. I have plenty of videos, articles, kb and tips on this site. When I started this blog, it was meant to be nothing but a blog but over the years I think my blog has become more or less like a site or a knowledge base. I am happy with that actually. The problem however is to organise the content that I already have to that anyone who is coming to this site to seek information can find it easily. It will be a shame if you come to my site and leave without finding what you were looking for. So I am writing this blog to help you. My target audience Want to learn Jira and Atlassian tools? Want to learn Drupal? Love Programming? Want to learn Linux? Interested in Open Source? Interested in Automation? Want to learn Emacs and Org…

2020 is over in few days, it is hard to believe what all happened so far this year but let us hope for a great future. For me it was all good, I worked from home all year like every other year :) so I feel fortunate that it was all smooth for me. Yes I do miss going out, drinking with friends and other things that normal people do. This year I spent lot of time in front of computer, a little more than usual. One thing I couldn't do this year was traveling to India. I had my ticket all booked and was really looking forward to my trip but couldn't. Life in UK is all good but nothing like Delhi, if you know what I mean ;) Anyways not everything is in our control, for people like me who grew up in 80s and 90s in Delhi we never saw anything of this scale in our lives but there is first time…
Jira Cloud
Tuesday, December 22, 2020 - 14:59
Atlassian changed their focus towards cloud when they announced that they will stop the server version of their applications in near future. Data Centre will continue but with this new focus majority of small to medium size Jira instances have to migrate to the Cloud. Now server version of Jira has always been the choice for organisations where there was a need to customise Jira exactly the way they want and also the wide availability of apps which makes the server version desirable. There are other benefits related to privacy etc. but in this blog I wanted to focus on one area, automation. Jira is a tool that people use to solve their problems, to work faster and efficiently. On server version ScriptRunner for Jira has been the number 1 choice for doing automation and the good news is…

There was a question on the community about negating a specific keyword using Regular Express. Use case: You want to not run the Automation rule when a release is created with name "norelease". So in this case when you created a new rule with Version created trigger then use the following regular expression. ^(?!.*norelease).*$ Enjoy!

When using Automation for Jira you may use regular expressions along with Smart Values (if needed) Use the "contain regular expression” condition to match for multiple keywords like this.^(Keyword 1|Keyword 2|Keyword 3) This will save time and makes your automation neat :)

Frost in Burnham

It was a bit cold today. -1 is cold I guess. There was frost everywhere. All the hidden spider webs were prominently visible as well.

New day new challenge :) If you have a site on GoDaddy's shared hosting you get cPanel and phpMyAdmin but no ssh which is sad but that's shared hosting. Resetting the password on Drupal 8 is possible but not easy. Use the php script on this page that you need to upload to your root of the site. I copied the script here as well. Create a file name with hard to guess name like "mypassword.php" :) <?php use Drupal\Core\DrupalKernel; use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;   if (pathinfo(__FILE__, PATHINFO_FILENAME) == 'admin-pass-reset') {   die('Please change your file name to a random string to continue'); }   // Boot Drupal. $autoloader = require __DIR__ . '/autoload.php';   $request = Request::createFromGlobals(); $kernel = DrupalKernel::…

Let us create a post function to remove an issue from a sprint.

Ravi Sagar Newsletter

Honestly I hardly send out mails but I guess there is no harm in at least having a newsletter. I will only send newsletter when I have something important to share or an update. People are busy and no one has time to read emails these days. If you really like my content then I guess you will remember my site and come back for more.
