Jira workflow for new projects

Associated workflow creation

I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.

I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project.

Default workflow for new projects

I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.

Solution: Create with shared configuration

While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:

"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.

  • The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I select
  • There will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup


This feature is a solution to the reported issues:

  • https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/45156/how-do-you-change-the-default-workflow-to-a-custom-one

Also having a Jira 6.4 Hosted, the dialog is a bit different and unfortunately what I avoid is only the creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme. I have to click on "Jira Default Schemes":

The new project will have the default configuration that I will have to manually change, but no Workflow and Issue Scheme will be added to the system.

vmware libz libfontconfig libexpat

Archlinux - Kernel 4.11 - VMWare workstation 12.5.7 With this combination, when I launch "vmware", despite the fact I already "export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=force", I get those lines:

Unable to load libfontconfig.so.1. /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libz.so.1/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/libpng16.so.16) Unable to load libfontconfig.so.1 from /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libfontconfig.so.1/libfontconfig.so.1: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Unable to load dependencies for /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libvmware-modconfig.so/libvmware-modconfig.so
In order to workaround, I decided to get the things to the maximum: Add all shipped libraries in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

So I created my custom launcher of "vmware" and this is the content:

#!/bin/bash
export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_LIBS=force
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=""
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$( find /usr/lib/vmware/lib/ -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 -type d | awk 'BEGIN{p=&quo…

vmware net_device trans_start

VMWare Workstation 12 and Kernel 4.7 When recompiling vmware kernel modules on a kernel 4.7, I get this error:

/tmp/modconfig-xrrZGZ/vmnet-only/netif.c:468:7: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’; did you mean ‘mem_start’?     dev->trans_start = jiffies;
This seems to be an already encountered problem: http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1746http://ferenc.homelinux.com/?p=356 I choosed to replace the line, instead of deleting it.

- dev->trans_start = jiffies; + netif_trans_update(dev); I also noted that I had to re-tar the modified sources instead of leaving them untared, because the compilation process only takes the archives. 
On precedent editions of these files, I just left the modified folders "vmnet-only/" and "vmmon-only/" expanded without the need to re-tar them.
