Confluence

 

These changes have just landed on your site, or will be there in the next few weeks:

  • Keep the things that matter to you close at hand with your dashboard now accessible even when you're viewing a page or space. The dashboard is the sidebar that includes your All updates, Recently worked on, and Saved for later lists; when your space sidebar is also visible, the dashboard will collapse into an icon-only version that sits next to it.
  • Your space sidebar has been decluttered, and will now display only the content type you're currently browsing, so that if you're looking at pages, it will only show other pages. Go back to your space home to switch to a different content type, like blogs. The sidebar no longer supports links, but these can be added into your overview, while space tools can now be found at the top right hand corner of your space home.
  • When you click on a space, you'll now land on a space home, which features a tabbed browsing experience. The content that was previously in your homepage will display in your space overview tab, while pages, blogs, and any add-on content such as calendars and questions will also have their own tabs, giving you an overview of all the content and content types in your space.
  • Each tab features information about the content under it, such as Name, Contributors, and Last modified. Pages and Blogs can be sorted by Name or Last modified, and can be moved, renamed, copied and reordered by hovering over a list item and clicking on the ellipses that appears.

 announcements

  • Migrating from Service Desk Server to Service Desk Cloud? Make sure you upgrade to Service Desk Server version 3.1 or higher before you do.
  All updates...
Date Changes
 
  • View issue screen: The More menu button has been changed to an ellipsis () and moved to the right of the screen. The Export menu button has also been changed to an icon ().

  • Global issue navigator (issue search results): The Share and Export menu buttons have been changed to icons —  and respectively. The Tools menu button has also been changed to an ellipsis ().

 
  • We added a trigger to automate events when an issue comment is edited.
  
  • In automation, we added a THEN action to edit issue fields. For example, keep on top of your SLAs by creating a rule that escalates an issue's priority if it breaches your goal.
 
  • In the customer portal, Add participants is now called Share.
  • Agents can add new customers to a service desk regardless of how request permissions are configured. Agents can add new customers by inviting them from the Customers page, raising a request on their behalf, or adding them as request participants on an email request. Previously, agents could only add new customers to the service desk when the request security was set to 'anyone can create a customer account'.
  • Bug fixes - see issues
 
  • You can show transitions on the customer portal so customers can reopen, escalate, or perform other transitions on a request. Read more on the Service Desk blog, or learn how to set up transitions.
  • Customers can turn off notifications about requests from the portal or email.
  • Customers can remove participants from a request.
  • We've added new automation rule WHEN triggers and IF conditions. Now you can trigger a rule if an issue changes resolution, a participant is added, or approval is required.
  • Automation rules are enabled by default when you create them. You can disable a rule in its configuration page.
  • Bug fixes - see issues
 
  • Administrators can now invite new users to JIRA Cloud applications from the project sidebar.
  • There are new ways to manage request type groups. They now appear as a sidebar in project settings. You can drag and drop to rearrange them in your customer portal. Additionally, you can hide request types from the portal without deleting them, and add existing request types to groups more easily through a drop-down menu.
  • Due to popular demand, we've removed pre-populated content from the comments box. If you liked the pre-populated content, we recommend voting for ticket JSD-631 Auto reply template. This feature would allow you to create canned response templates and customize the pre-populated content.

  • Bug fixes - see issues
 
  • Comments getting too long? You can strip quoted text from emailed replies. You can turn on this setting from JIRA Administration > Applications > JIRA Service Desk > Email requests.

  • When you add new customers to a service desk by adding them as participants in an email request, you can add a maximum of 25 people per email.
  • Bug fixes - see issues 
 
 
  • When you create an automation rule, you can use a webhook THEN action to send JIRA Service Desk events to third-party applications and add-ons. Visit Service Desk webhooks to learn more.

  • Bug fixes - see issues
  
ANNOUNCEMENT

We’re aware that the participants feature in JIRA Service Desk has been inadvertently creating unsolicited notifications. To address this we have implemented the following changes:

  • Disabled invitation of new customers via email To/Cc fields, so only existing customers (i.e. those with an account on JIRA Service Desk) can be invited as a participant to a ticket.

  • Limited the invitation of new customers to 5 at one time via the “Add People” option when customers add participants via the Help Center. There is no limit on the total number of participants that can be on a ticket.

  
  • When you create an automation rule, you can use a webhook THEN action to send JIRA Service Desk events to third-party applications and add-ons. Visit Service Desk webhooks to learn more.
 
  • Spam protection on the customer portal. The customer portal uses an invisible 'honeypot' field to trap bots and keep them from creating spam accounts.
  • Agents can search for articles within a linked knowledge base directly from a service desk request. Agents can also view restricted articles that might be related to a request or contain information that helps them resolve a customer's issue.
  • Links to other JIRA issues (in the description or comments) rendr with an icon and status, rather than as just a plain hyperlink.
  • You can't label new articles that you create in the agent view. You can still add labels when you view the article in the associated Confluence space.
 
  • Ever wanted to know more about your data points on a custom report? Now you can click the points and drill down deeper into the information. Need to extract that info? You can also click the Export CSV button to export the information.
  • We've added a Raise a request link to the project sidebar, which allows service desk agents to raise requests more efficiently.
ANNOUNCEMENT
  • We will be ending support for Internet Explorer 10 for all JIRA Cloud applications on 1 July 2016. This change will help us provide the best user experience to our JIRA Cloud customers.
 
  • In keeping up with technology, we've added support for the Microsoft Edge browser for all JIRA Cloud applications.
  
  • Approvals are here! We've introduced an approval setting for JIRA workflows that will enforce an approval step on your workflow. Check the docs for more info.
  • Smart search is now available to customers looking for request types and knowledge articles in both individual customer portals and the global help center
  • Agents can now view and share knowledge articles without leaving a request
  • Bug fixes - see issues
 
 
  • We've changed our onboarding flows, administrators will be presented with options to create a project, create a project with sample data, or import issues from another system, and we've removed the 12 step onboarding for users.
  • Now that we have sample data, we've added a new option on the create project screen which will allow an admin to create a project with sample data at any time. This can be used to create projects to onboard new users.
   
  • JIRA Service Desk comes with a set of default icons that can be used for request types in a project. We've taken this a step further and given you the ability to upload and use custom icons and images. Read more.
  • Bug fixes - see issues.  
   
  • For JIRA Service Desk admins, we've changed 'Project administration' to 'Project settings' at the bottom of your project toolbar.

JIRA Software

 

These changes have just landed on your site, or will be there in the next few days: 

  • Kanban boards now display epic names as lozenges on epic issue cards — pretty much like how epic links currently appear as lozenges on issues that are assigned to epics.

  • You can now search for sub-tasks that are part of an epic! Use the new parentEpic function with one or more epics, and the function will return both issues in that epic and their sub-tasks.

Portfolio for JIRA

            
      • Bug fixes


  All updates...
Week Change log Version
   
  • Bug fixes
2.1.7 - OD-002
      
  • Bug fixes
2.1.6 - OD-001
     
  • Earliest start date
    The earliest start guarantees that an item is not scheduled before a defined date, even if it has higher priority relative to other work items, or there are free resources.
  • Hiding issues on commit
    Issues can disappear upon committing because they don’t match the filter query of the board. In order to make them show up click on the message and set the required values on your issues so they show up again.
  • Migration guide
    Portfolio for JIRA will discontinue supporting Classic plans by April 1st, 2017 for Cloud instances.
 2.1.5-OD-001
     
  • Expose the hierarchy information in JIRA Software
    This feature allows you to show the parent link field within JIRA so you can easily access Portfolio's hierarchical relationships. With this feature you can also see the child issue list  within the parent issue in JIRA Software.
  • Parent and teams field searchable via sql

    You can use the JQL search to find  the parent and team custom fields in JIRA Software.

  • Shared reports
    With Portfolio you can now share your reports in two different ways, you can either share a link to embed the report view on iFrame, or you can share a view only link.
  • Add custom fields at the plan level

    You can add custom fields from JRA Software into your plan so you can view and edit them in your scope table.

     

2.1.2-OD-004

     
  • Bug fixes
2.0.9-OD-001
       There are potential performance and memory problems in the versions 2.0.6 and 2.0.7 related to the display of hierarchy information (parent field, child issues) on individual JIRA issues. The issue is located in the JIRA's View, Create and Edit issue screens.

We urge users running Portfolio for JIRA 2.0.6 and 2.0.7 to upgrade to 2.0.8 as soon as possible in order to solve this problem.

 2.0.8-OD-001
       Expose the hierarchy information in JIRA Software

This feature allows you to show the parent link field within JIRA so you can easily access Portfolio's hierarchical relationships.

Default estimates 

We apply default estimates to unestimated issues if the respective hierarchy level is defined in the plan's planning unit.

Define an estimate method conversion factor

Sometimes, you happen to have different issue sources with different estimation methods but you want to import them into one Portfolio plan. A plan can only have one estimation unit so you will have to convert estimates of the secondary planning unit to the primary planning unit. In this section, you'll learn how to select a conversion ratio that will convert time to story points once your plan has been created.

Dependencies schedule

This feature allows you to have more control on how things are scheduled.

You can now choose whether you want the schedule to rank the dependent items below the required items or to rank the required items above the dependent items. You can also force the schedule to ignore dependencies.

 2.0.7-OD-001

      

Scheduling unestimated items [LABS]

Long-term work has usually a higher level of uncertainty.  If you want to draft a high-level roadmap without well-defined future estimates, you can use this feature with your future releases to have a better view of what's coming up.

New hierarchy switcher position

The hierarchy switcher has moved next to the filters.
 2.0.6-OD-001
     

Rank improvements

We have made some visual improvements so you can easily drag and re-rank issues in the scope.

Feedback dialog

We've improved the feedback button in Portfolio for JIRA so you can easily access a variety of support resources such as documentation, demos and bug reporting.

2.0.5-OD-001
      

Scope details view

  • When you open an issue detailed view from Scope, you can set its parent issue.
  • You can also set the earliest start date.

  • Getting started wizard - The new plan creation allows you get up and running in 4 steps, and in less than a minute.
  • Sandbox planning - Now you can play with different scenarios before deciding to commit changes back to JIRA Software. 
  • Unlimited hierarchy levels - Portfolio for JIRA groups your issues in hierarchical levels. You can customize both name and hierarchy level to adapt it to your needs.
  • Release model - Out-of-the-box grouping of releases by JIRA Software projects, and cross-project releases that are used to manage joint releases, dates and milestones across multiple individual projects.
  • Team management - Share teams across multiple plans so you only have to define your teams in one place.
  • Dependencies management - Use JIRA issue links to define scheduling dependencies between issues.

2.0.1-OD-001

   
  • Capacity view
    The capacity view shows how much of a team's potential work capacity is being used, and helps you to see potential bottlenecks and how you balance the workload between your teams. The capacity view will help you to understand how to allocate your upcoming projects.
  • Team's velocity fly-out

    The team's velocity chart shows forecasted velocity taking into account your team members availability. It also shows the past velocity based on JIRA Software sprints.

  • Hiding the timeline

    You can now hide and re-display the timeline.

  • Stages and skills

    With the stages you will be able to define work that must happen sequentially, and skills will allow you to schedule work on a single issue that can be done simultaneously by certain people. This feature make scheduling more realistic by ensuring that only people with the relevant skills can work on issues. 

  • Committing assignees to JIRA
    From now on, assigning a single team member to an issue in the plan will also update the issue assignee in JIRA upon committing your changes.
1.12.6-OD-001
    
  • Reports
    The Reports section gives you a graphical overview of the different aspects of your plan such as release and sprint information.

1.12.5-OD-001
  
  • Progress tracking

    Track the progress of your JIRA application issues directly from your Portfolio plan by connecting a Live Plan with your boards and projects.

    In the new scope view, the progress bar will be displayed for individual items, and for parent issues as an aggregate of all their children. You can also check the progress of releases in the release view.

  • Team members availability and absences
    Portfolio brings you full flexibility to configure team members' availability. You will be able to see who is available to work on which team, and for how long.
  • Team members column

    The scope view has a new column where you can automatically or manually choose the team members that will be working on an issue. The schedule will take the issue assignees into account.

1.12.4-OD-001
 
  • Cross-project releases are now available for Live Plans, which allow grouping releases from multiple JIRA projects and managing them from a single place. It also gives you an overview of the individual releases' statuses and allows you to align the release dates in a single step.
