Problems with "Insight"
Dependency issues caused by "Insight"
Since version 4.19 of Jira Service Management, disabling or uninstalling "Insight" (which is now "Assets") may cause dependency issues that could prevent "Elements Copy & Sync" from being updated.
This is explained in the following release notes: Jira Service Management 4.19.x
Please see the following Atlassian KB on this topic: How to install, uninstall, enable or disable Insight - Asset Management app in different Jira Service Management instance type and version
So, if your JSM version is 4.19 or higher, please ensure that "Insight" is installed and enabled.
How to check that Insight is installed and enabled?
A. Via the "Manage Apps" page
Go to the "Manage Apps" page and check that the plugin named "Insight Plugin" is installed and enabled. Be careful not to confuse it with the other plugin called "jira-assets-plugin":
B. Via the "Support Zip" file
Another way is to generate a "Support Zip" file, as explained here.
Then, perform the following actions:
- Open the Zip file
- Go to the "application-properties" folder
- Open the "application.xml" file
- Search for "Insight Plugin"
- Make sure the Status is set to ENABLED:
