Upgrading to GreenHopper 6.1.4 is free for all customers with an active GreenHopper license.

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


Versions now in Plan mode (via Labs)

By popular request, you can now view your issues according to which version (ie. product release) they belong to, and drag-and-drop issues to quickly add them to the relevant version. This helps you plan your upcoming versions, which may span multiple sprints.

Click VERSIONS at the left of the screen, or select Tools > Show Version Panel.

(info) Your administrator will first need to activate Release Planning in GreenHopper Labs.

We plan to make further enhancements to the Versions panel in the near future. It is intended that you will be able to create, edit and delete versions directly in GreenHopper.


Version Report

The Version Report will show you a list of all issues in a given version:

(info) Before you can view the Version Report, your administrator will need to activate Release Planning in GreenHopper Labs.

We plan to make further enhancements to the Version Report in the near future.


"Votes" field available in the Issue Detail View

You can now add the Votes field to your Issue Detail View.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that all fields in the Issue Detail View are now configurable, and mark GHS-3474 - Getting issue details... STATUS as Done.

Thank you for your patience. This has been a case of iterative development (we practise what we preach), enabling us to bring you new features as early as possible rather than withholding them until fully complete.

Custom Fields now managed by GreenHopper

  • Epic Colour
  • Epic Link
  • Epic Name
  • Epic Status
  • Sprint
  • Rank

The above fields will be shown as 'Locked' on the JIRA field configuration screen, e.g.:

(There is an exception to this: the fields will only be unconfigurable if they had not been manually configured in JIRA prior to upgrading to GreenHopper 6.1.4.)

For more information about these custom fields, please see GreenHopper JIRA Configuration.
