Changing the logging level in a cluster just got easier


Sometimes it's the small things that make a big difference to your day. On the Logging and Profiling administration page, you can now choose which cluster node you want to apply your changes to. No need to navigate to each node in your browser.

This applies to log levels, marking logs, and profiling settings. 

Connect to cloud products with secure application tunnels


Integrating Atlassian cloud and self-managed (Data Center and Server) products through application links requires opening your network for incoming connections, which isn’t something everyone can do. To solve this problem, we’re now introducing application tunnels.

Application tunnels use network tunneling to create a secure pathway between your organization in Atlassian Cloud and the products in your network. You can use this pathway to tunnel application links and integrate your products in a secure way. Thanks to that, your products can communicate with one another, while you keep your network safe and sound.

Application tunnels are available for Confluence 7.4 and later. Learn more about application tunnels
