Got comments? 

Let us know on our blog posts. 


User deactivation is now here!

As part of our ongoing work to improve the site administration experience, this release will include a new Deactivate button. Site admins (users who have access to the User administration screens) can now deactivate a specific user. Deactivation means that:

  • All the users' data remains in your site; the user's comments or changes are still around so you'll always know what the user did
  • The user won't be able to log in anymore, and he/she won't count against your license
  • You can reactivate the user later if want to

JIRA Agile 6.7

Classic boards removed from JIRA Agile

As previously announced, Classic boards have been removed from JIRA Agile in this release. We haven't made this change lightly and have taken your feedback on board throughout this process. If you haven't read The Future of JIRA Agile yet, please read it to understand the background behind this change. 

If you haven't migrated your Classic boards to the new board yet, you will need to do so before upgrading to this release. See Migrating from Classic Boards for instructions.

How do I know if I am using a Classic board?

If you are not sure whether you are using a newer Agile board or an older Classic board, you can distinguish the two via the page URL. When viewing a newer Agile board, the URL of the page will include the word 'rapid' (e.g. RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=524)whereas a Classic board will not.

Default sprint durations for new sprints

JIRA Agile now provides a number of default sprint durations (1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks) that you can choose from when starting a new sprint. Don't worry if these sprint durations don't suit your team, you can still specify your own start and end dates for a sprint, if you wish. This custom sprint duration will be persisted for your next sprint too.

The 'Start Sprint' dialog now displays the number of working days in the sprint as well, helping you plan your sprints more effectively.

Version Report gadget

The Version Report can now be shown as a gadget, making it easier to view and share. The Version Report gadget is wallboard-compatible, so your whole team can keep track of how they are progressing towards the completion of the version.

Status of parent issue shown on the swimlanes

When viewing issues with subtasks in the Active sprints (Scrum) or Kanban board (Kanban), you can now see the status of the parent issue in its swimlane header. This makes it easier for you to get all the information that you need about your issues, at a glance.
