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
Attachment Checker allows all attachments to be scanned with an external 3rd party anti-virus scanner after they are uploaded.
This addresses the following issues:
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
Checking for attachments with duplicate filenames
When there are many attachments with the same filename, it is difficult for users to determine whether they are the same copy or which one is the latest version.
Attachment Checker is able to block the upload if attachment has the same filename as existing attachments.
The user can then determine if someone has already uploaded the file or to rename and re-upload the file.
Blocking of attachments with same filename can be enabled at Attachment Checker Configuration → Duplicate Blocking
Improvement in the UI
The configuration settings are now grouped by their feature to make it more user-friendly for the users
