Hi Atlassian Devs
I have a request re the GDPR-related changes mentioned in https://blog.developer.atlassian.com/important-gdpr-changes-in-jira-server/ :
I want to start by saying that these changes are (at least from my perspective) not unexpected after the cloud changes and as a European citizen, I’ll say that they’re much appreciated
I’m guessing, though, that these changes will likely come to the other server products as well, so I was hoping that you could coordinate them with the other product teams to prevent too much product-specific code from being introduced.
The article mentioned that the SPI will be located in
com.atlassian.jira and that is suboptimal from a cross-product perspective. Maybe you could introduce a new package in the SAL that would include these changes instead?
That would be a huge help to those of us vendors who develop and maintain cross-product apps. While it is certainly possible to introduce product-specific code, maintaining 5 separate code paths for basically the same thing is suboptimal from a code deduplication perspective. And while several of those examples already exist, we’d like to prevent another one of these from happening while it’s still in the planning phase.
Thanks for your consideration!
PS: If someone of the Developer Relations staff hanging around here could please make sure the Jira Server team reads this, I’d be grateful
