We are pleased to present version 2.0 of the Attachment Checker for JIRA plugin.
New Features for Attachment Checker 2.0
Support scanning of attachments for viruses
This addresses the following issues:
Feature request raised in JRA-8626 (Virus scan attachments)
Performance issue listed in Anti-virus with Jira application where Jira users experience slowness due to scanning of temporary files
When an attachment is uploaded, it is added into a queue for scanning, so that users do not have to wait for the scanning to complete, which may take some time especially for large files.
If attachment is found to be infected, a comment will be added in the issue to inform users for follow up.
Any non-zero exit code by the virus scanner is treated as infected.
Virus scanning can be configured at Attachment Checker Configuration → Virus Scanning
Please refer to Additional steps for virus scanning set up for detailed instructions.
Checking for attachments with duplicate filenames
Improvement in the UI
The configuration settings are now grouped by their feature to make it more user-friendly for the users
