30 May 2013

The Atlassian team announces the release of GreenHopper 6.2.2, bringing you:

This release also includes a number of fixes.

Upgrading to GreenHopper 6.2.2 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 via the JIRA Plugin Manager. Before upgrading, please read the GreenHopper 6.2 Upgrade Notes. Please note that GreenHopper 6.2.2 is only compatible with JIRA 5.1.x and higher.

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


Export to Excel in a single click

You can now export your selected issue(s) from Plan mode instantly. Simply right-click and choose View in Excel:

All fields will be exported.

(info) Note: Due to technical considerations, the length of the URL that can be exported is limited to 2048 characters. This may limit the number of issues that can be exported.


Epics integrated into JIRA

For your convenience, JIRA is now more epic-aware:

Associate a story with an Epic, from within JIRA
You can now use the Epic Link field to add an issue to an epic directly from the issue or story in JIRA, when creating or editing an issue via the JIRA Create/ Edit popup:

(tick) Click Configure Fields to add the Epic Link field to your JIRA Create/Edit popup.


Move a story to different Epic from within JIRA

The Epic Link field is also editable when using the JIRA full editing screen. Type-ahead is included for your convenience:


Add a story to an empty Epic from within JIRA

The "+" icon now appears in the Issues in Epic area, even if an epic doesn't yet contain any issues:


The Epic Link field now shows the epic's name in your JIRA Issue Navigator

If you add the Epic Link field as a column in your JIRA Issue Navigator, it will now display the actual name of the epic (rather than the issue key of the epic).

Additionally, if you export via JIRA, the Epic Link field will be included in your Excel export — so you can create an export that contains the Epic Link field, but not necessaily all issue fields.


Autocomplete for Epic Link in JQL

When you search on the "Epic Link" field, the values on the right hand side are now auto-completed. This allows you to more easily search for issues which belong to a particular epic, e.g. start typing "Epic Link" = Mo to see all the epic names that start with "Mo":


French, German, Japanese and Spanish Translations

As part of our ongoing efforts to better serve our customers around the world, we are happy to announce that German, French, Spanish and Japanese translations are now bundled with GreenHopper. Simply change your preferred language in your JIRA user profile (see the JIRA documentation on Managing your User Profile).

They are also available from our Translations site,
