Development Tool

The Development Tool module allows an app to send Development Information to JIRA. This development information will be displayed in the development information panel when an issue is viewed.

When a user uninstalls an app, all the data that the app sent to Jira is deleted. If the app is reinstalled, this data won't be added back unless the app resends historical information to Jira.
