Atlassian Issue Collector … did you know …?

By 10th March 2014Development

The Atlassian Issue Collector is a great tool to make it easy for testers and clients to give feedback on your site. And the out-of-the-box settings give quite a few options. But if it’s just one person testing then it’s a bit annoying for that person to have to keep typing their name and email over and over again.

Did you know you can modify the collector’s behaviour with JavaScript? For the full explanation have a look here: Advanced Use of the JIRA Issue Collector, but to just help that poor tester’s fingers you can add JS just above where you have inserted the collector like this:

window.ATL_JQ_PAGE_PROPS = $.extend(window.ATL_JQ_PAGE_PROPS, {
fieldValues: {
fullname : ‘Joe Bloggs’,
email : ‘’
<script type=“text/javascript” src=””></script>

    Great article! I’ve been trying to get my issue collector to capture and log the full URL of our site’s subpages. Unfortunately the “Advanced use of the issue collector” support page doesn’t answer my questions very well. Were you able to capture full urls?

      Hi Noman,

      I’ll try and help. If you use the default code generated when creating a new Issue Collector in JIRA the full URL should be supplied. I’ve just tried it here and can see the following added to the Environment (URL changed for posting here):

      *User-Agent*: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2125.111 Safari/537.36
      *Screen Resolution*: 1680 x 1050

      Do you get the same?
