Documentation for our Cloud apps has moved!

We're creating documentation spaces for each of our Atlassian Cloud apps to make it easier for you to find the product documentation you needAfter all, if you only use Confluence Cloud, we don't want you to have to wade through a lot of JIRA docs to find what you're looking for. This space will remain here, but will be focused on helping Atlassian Cloud site admins with admin, billing, and user-management tasks that fall outside of specific applications.

JIRA CloudJIRA Service Desk CloudJIRA Portfolio CloudConfluence CloudConfluence Questions Cloud and Bamboo Cloud each have their own dedicated documentation space, which you can visit right now. If you've bookmarked any pages in this space, we recommend you update them as soon as possible. The page title should remain the same, but the space key will change. For example:

Old URL – confluence.atlassian.com/display/Cloud/Logging+in+to+JIRA

New URL – confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRACloud/Logging+in+to+JIRA


The URLs for the new spaces are as follows:

JIRA – confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRACloud

JIRA Service Desk – confluence.atlassian.com/display/ServiceDeskCloud

JIRA Portfolio – confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAPortfolioCloud

Confluence – confluence.atlassian.com/display/ConfCloud

Confluence Questions – confluence.atlassian.com/display/QuestionsCloud

Bamboo – confluence.atlassian.com/display/BambooCloud


You can still find documentation for other Atlassian apps that work in the cloud, like HipChat and BitBucket, as well as the documentation for add-ons, like JIRA Agile, in their usual locations:

HipChat – help.hipchat.com

Bitbucket – confluence.atlassian.com/display/Bitbucket

JIRA Agile — confluence.atlassian.com/display/Agile/

This is part of a larger project designed to make our documentation easier to navigate, no matter whether you have one of our Cloud apps or the whole stack. We appreciate your patience while we're rolling out these changes; feel free to give us your feedback by commenting on this post.

Mea culpa

We realize we may have inadvertently spammed a small number of you earlier this week due to a mis-firing script. If you got a large number of emails from the, now ironically-named, 'information experience bot' (ixbot), we're sorry! We'll endeavor to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Confluence 5.8-OD-51 

Plan your roadmaps by month or week 

You can now choose to display your roadmaps in weeks or months in the Roadmap Planner macro.

Notify watchers remembers your preference

The Notify Watchers checkbox now remembers your last selection. This means if you deselect this checkbox in the editor when saving a page, it will be automatically deselected for you next time you edit another page.  Less clicks, more win.

JIRA Agile 6.7.1

Search by Sprint field in JIRA (basic search)

Searching by the Sprint field in JIRA has only been possible via the advanced search (i.e. JQL) until now. In this release, you can now select the Sprint field as a parameter in the basic search. Just navigate to the basic search, click More and add the Sprint field.

Use Sprint field for the Two dimensional filter gadget 

The Two dimensional filter statistics gadget shows the cross tabulation of two fields, based on data from a specified filter. In this release, you can now choose the Sprint field as a variable for the gadget. For example, you might want to see how many issues each user has assigned to them, by sprint. To try it out, add the 'Two Dimensional Filter Statistics' gadget to your dashboard and select Sprint as the X Axis or Y Axis variable.

JIRA Portfolio 1.9.5 

Report and view the way you want

Have specific reporting needs? You can now export a CSV text file that contains all of the information in your backlog and release tables, including scheduled start and end dates. Just export the file and import into your favorite spreadsheet or charting tool to use your raw data for reporting and viewing your plan the way that you want to see it.

Bamboo 5.9-OD-02 

AWS CodeDeploy for Bamboo Cloud

The new AWS CodeDeploy task for Bamboo ensures smooth and safe application deployments to EC2 instances.

The task compresses a specified directory into a .zip file, uploads the file to Amazon S3, and starts the deployment.

The whole deployment process is tracked within AWS CodeDeploy where you can check information like deployment status, configuration, and health.

Easier AWS credentials management

Working with AWS is easy! You can now store your AWS credentials in Bamboo and reuse them in tasks that leverage shared credentials:

Bamboo Clover Plugin improvements

Automatic Clover integration for Maven tasks has been improved. The integration is tighter:

  • builds are faster, because the Maven build cycle is performed only once
  • the problem with the compilation of multi-module Maven projects is fixed (BAM-13208)

In addition to this, automatic Clover integration for Maven tasks runs with the 'repository pollution protection' feature enabled. Thus, in case your Maven task runs 'install' or 'deploy' goal, Clover will not activate. In order to fix it you have to run a build till the 'verify' phase (the latest), configure manual Clover integration or disable the 'repository pollution protection' feature.

JIRA Service Desk 2.5-OD-02 

This is a minor feature and bug fix release, which includes the ability for customers to search by Reference ID in the customer portal.
