JIRA Core 7.6.x release notes
16 November 2017We're pleased to present JIRA Core 7.6.
It's good to have priorities
No two projects are the same, and no two teams tackle a problem in the same way. With that in mind, we're bringing a new approach to priorities to accommodate the diversity of teams working with JIRA Core. Now, you can choose different priorities for different projects by using priority schemes.
Priority schemes work like mappings—on one side, you choose priorities, and on the other, projects that will use them. You can reuse a single scheme across multiple projects, or create as many of them as you want—we'll leave that for you to decide.
For more information, see Priority schemes.
Live monitoring with JMX
JMX lets you monitor your JIRA instance in real time. It uses objects called MBeans to expose data and resources about your application. You can check the number of requests JIRA has to deal with, the total response time, details about your license, or even the number of issues your users have created since the beginning of time.
It can help you make better decisions about how to optimize your resources, or troubleshoot an issue that's been bugging you about your instance.
For more information, see Live monitoring.
Small improvements to make your day
Subtasks drag 'n' drop
Until now, the only way to reorder your subtasks was to use the up and down arrows, which was really painful, especially with long lists of subtasks (we've heard your feedback, and experienced it ourselves!) Now, you can drag the subtasks and drop them anywhere on the list, and use the time we've saved you to do more awesome stuff.
Better security with X-Frame-Options
If you haven’t heard of clickjacking, it’s a malicious technique of tricking the users into clicking something different from what they think they’re clicking, mostly by embedding some ‘hidden’ content into iframes. To prevent that, we’ve introduced security headers (X-Frame-Options and CSP) that either block embedding, or require some extra rules to do it. Learn more
