This release also includes a number of fixes.

Upgrading to GreenHopper 6.1.2 is free for all customers with an active GreenHopper license.

If you are using GreenHopper "behind-the-firewall" (that is, if GreenHopper is installed on-premises at your site), you can upgrade GreenHopper via the JIRA Plugin Manager. Before upgrading, please read the GreenHopper 6.1.2 Upgrade Notes.

If you are using GreenHopper OnDemand, please watch the JIRA Agile OnDemand Release Summary for the latest updates.

Search for Issues by Epic Name

We are pleased to announce that you can now find issues in a given epic by simply using the epic's name in your JQL search, e.g.:

"epic link" = Jupiter

You can still use the epic's issue key (as previously) if you wish, e.g.:

"epic link" = ANERDS-317

(info) Please note that your administrator will need to re-index JIRA before you can search by epic name.


View the Epic Report

The Epic Report shows a list of complete, incomplete and unestimated issues in an epic. It is particularly useful for planning work for an epic that may extend over multiple sprints.

Use the Epic Report to understand the progress towards completing an epic over time, and to track the amount of remaining work that's incomplete or unestimated.


Right-Click to Quickly Rank and Assign Issues to Sprint

Managing your project's backlog just got a whole lot easier. You can now select one or more issues and right-click to send them to a particular sprint, or to the top/bottom of the backlog.


View Selected Issues in Issue Navigator

From Plan mode, you can now easily jump to the Issue Navigator and view/action your selected issues (see screenshot above).


Bulk Change

Need to edit, transition, delete or move a bunch of issues? From Plan mode, you can now perform a JIRA Bulk Change on your selected issues (see screenshot above).


Add more Fields to the Issue Detail View

In GreenHopper 6.0.3 we introduced the ability to add text-fields to your cards; in 6.0.5, we added numeric fields; and in 6.0.8, we added date/time fields.

In 6.1.2, you can now also add custom fields of the following types:

  • label
  • select
  • check-box
  • radio button
  • version

Exclude Weekends from Cycle Time calculations

By (very) popular request, you can now exclude weekends from your cycle time (that is, the time taken to resolve an issue).

For most teams, including the weekend will artificially inflate your actual cycle time. So now, when viewing the Control Chart, you can simply choose to exclude your non-working days:
