Panel configuration edition

If the configuration of an existing panel is changed, it may or may not have an impact on the existing data.

Let's see this in detail: 

  • when an attribute is deleted from a Panel configuration, it will be deleted on existing issues - all data will be lost
  • when an attribute is added to a panel configuration, it will be added on already populated panels - its value will be empty even if it is mandatory.
  • when a calculated attribute is created or edited, it will appear on existing panels - the computation will be made, it means that you won't have to edit existing Elements Checklist to see the result of the computation. However, in order to be able to perform JQL searches based on this attribute, all issues of the project must be re-indexed.
