Thanks for taking the time to raise this UX issue. We discussed within the team and felt that the current behaviour was acceptable

Hi, I found a UX issue while testing this new editor. When the autocomplete dropdown opens with height exceeding the height of a dialog the dialog content gets scrolled down and the JQL input goes out of the visible dialog content area.
I've added two attachments (they show in a reverse order due to alphabetical sorting) to illustrate the issue:
1. Open JQL editor and type "assignee ="
=> see "jql-editor-scrolling-issue-before.png" - the JQL input is visible at the top of the dialog
3. Press space, the JQL editor shows the autocomplete dropdown for assignee that exceeds the height of a dialog and the dialog content gets scrolled down so that the JQL input becomes invisible.
=> see "jql-editor-scrolling-issue-after.png" - as dropdown is displayed the dialog content is scrolled down so that the bottom of dropdown menu is visible.

Any chance to fix this issue?

If you happen to know whether JSE-2114 fixes the pdcleaner endpoint to work with custom entity property I'd appreciate the info.

It's hard to find all the answers to various aspects of GDPR migration so I also asked this questions here: https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/ACJIRA-1723?focusedCommentId=411515&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-411515

Ah sorry that link might not work. It should be in production within a few days, and comms will be sent to vendors (along with a guide) when available

Yes. But I believe you may need to update your entity property type as per the latest property-index docs

Please follow JCE-2114 to confirm when this feature has been rolled out
