You can add connections, but not delete them.

You can add connections, but not delete them. Our team set up a stage server to test upgrading Jira to the newest version, and I added a connection to it in WLA2. The connection worked fine, but there appears to be no way to remove it. Wat do?

  • Hey David,

    Deleting connections wasn't considered a common use case, but it looks like a lot of people are actually asking for this for mainly this reason - to use against a test server. So unexpected. Mainly, it was expected to use against a permanent second server and those people usually don't care about deleting. Please +1 this anyone who reads this and wants the delete capability. Anyway, there are two levels of things you can do:

    1. Super geek version.

    1. Publish your worklogs
    2. At the shell:
    $ sqlite "~/.local/share/Fizz Buzz Inc./Worklog Assistant/db.sqlite3"
    sqlite> pragma foreign_keys=on;
    sqlite> select id,url from connection; -- figure out the id of your connection
    sqlite> delete from connection where id=; -- the id from above
    ^D (Ctrl-D)
    3. Restart app

    2. "I don't have time for this" version:

    1. Publish your worklogs
    2. Delete "~/.local/share/Fizz Buzz Inc./Worklog Assistant/db.sqlite3"
    3. Restart app (you'll have to reconfigure your actual connection)

    Loving the sentiment you attached to this!

  • I’m experiencing cognitive dissonance
    Isn't CRUD (Create Read Update Delete) considered core functionality? Not only do people use test configurations, but they might migrate from one Jira server to another over the course of time. I wouldn't think anything you could *add* to an application would have *remove* as an edge case.
