IE incompatibility issues with JS

Hi there!

Just wanted to ask if anyone of you has experienced some incompatibility issues of your IE11 and JS?

Our plugin’s main resource is a javascript. JIRA version is 7.6.2. To handle the loading we implemented something like below:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function () {


Our javascript perfectly works in Firefox and Google Chrome both in initial loading and after reloading. But in IE11, our dropdown list is not functioning well on initial open but once we close then re-open that dropdown list, it works fine. PS: we used JS to edit the options in that dropdown list based on the selection in another dropdown field

Is there any incompatibility in JS and IE11 for Jira JS/plugins?
Please advise.

Thank you so much!! This will really help our team!

Hi @marya.magno,

It’s hard to tell what exactly is happening without more context and information. This problem sounds like it could be anything between JavaScript errors to a bug in the dropdown component you’re using.

our dropdown list is not functioning well on initial open

Could you expand upon what you mean by “it is not functioning well”? What is the expected behaviour, and what actually happens?

Could you also provide more of your initialisation script? It would be great to see some console.log calls at key points in your initialisation code, so we could see if there’s a significant difference in the execution of code between the browsers. I would be particularly interested to see how you are creating the dropdown’s markup.
