REST API for priority schemes

JIRA Core 7.7 brings experimental REST APIs to let you manage priority schemes outside of the user interface. As a JIRA admin, you can perform the following actions on priority schemes:

  • Create priority schemes
  • Retrieve a list of priority schemes 
  • Retrieve a priority scheme 
  • Update priority schemes, e.g with new priorities 
  • Associate a project with a priority scheme 
  • Disassociate a project from a priority scheme 
  • Retrieve a priority scheme associated with a project

If you're curious to learn more, see JIRA 7.7.0 REST API.

Small improvements to make your day

We've also worked on some small improvements and fixes.

  • Pasting images into issue's description. Previously, you might have encountered some problems with rendering your images in the issue's description when switching from the visual mode to text and back. It works now without fuss, even if you switch the mode back and forth all the time.

  • We speak your language. We've added two more languages to JIRA—Italian and Finnish. Check out the languages available by default after you upgrade to JIRA 7.7.

    Also, we’ve decided that translations for languages that are bundled with JIRA best reflect what we originally wanted to say. That’s why we’re closing the crowdsourcing of translations for these languages and accepting them as official words of JIRA. You can still help us improve the remaining languages, or change the official translations to use in your own JIRA instance. For more info, see Translating JIRA.
