Upgrading from 8.x to 9.x triggers full Jira reindex that causes some downtime during the process. If you’re on 8.x now, make sure you’ve estimated the downtime and set the best time for the upgrade.

Search for projects and issue types in custom field contexts 

The UI for this feature is still a work in progress and to offer the best possible user experience, it is not currently available by default. To access the new functionality, turn on the jira.customfields.configure.modern.ui feature flag.

On large instances with custom fields reused across numerous projects, finding the needed field contexts can take some time. Especially if you want to add or remove an issue type or project from the context, but don’t know exactly where they appear. To make this process more efficient, we’ve introduced the Projects and Issue types menus.

When you select a particular item in a menu, you’ll see the list of contexts it appears in. Keep in mind that the same project can’t appear in more than one context. Learn more about configuring contexts for custom fields

The information in the Contexts table might vary depending on the field type.

Such columns as Context, Issue types, Projects, and Actions are always displayed for any custom field. However, if your field has specific customization or multiple properties, such information will be added as extra columns to the table.

Add linked issues to the existing ones with one click DATA CENTER

We’re introducing a new Create linked issue screen, an out-of-the-box solution for creating and editing linked issues between Jira Software projects or between Jira Software and Jira Service Management projects. This eliminates the need for complex workarounds with screen and field configurations.

For example, before the update, when you wanted to add a field to a linked issue, you’d need to add this field to the Create issue screen of the original issue in a current project. Then, in the field configuration, you’d need to set the field as required. Only after these steps, the desired field would appear on the Create linked issue screen.

To create a linked issue now, you just need to go to the More menu in an existing issue and select the Create linked issue option.

The linked issue screen will open with all the default and custom fields prepopulated with the latest values you’ve used when working on other issues. For example, if the last issue type you selected was a story, it’ll be preset in the Issue Type field of the new linked issue.

The fields in the linked issue automatically reflect the fields of a selected destination project. You can edit them on the Create linked issue screen as needed.
