Overview

SMARTER USER PICKER FOR JIRA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This plugin increases recall when searching for users in JIRA. Users can be found:

- by their name, even if the query contains some typos
- by nicknames and fullnames (e.g., Mike == Michael)
- by their initials

HOW TO INSTALL THE PLUGIN
=========================

Use UPM in JIRA. The plugin is available at http://marketplace.atlassian.com/

HOW TO COMPILE AND RUN FROM THE SOURCES
=======================================

You will need Atlassian SDK 4.0.

By executing "atlas-run", the plugin will be compiled and installed in an
local instance of JIRA. Access it at http://localhost:2990/

Please read the SDK documentation for further details

FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS
===================

* Replace JIRA's user picker field.
* Performance. Currently, the plugin indexes all users for each request, and
  stores the index in memory. This will not scale for large instances of JIRA with
  thousands of users.
* Search by email and other user attributes.
