    Atlassian Cloud changes Jan 6 to Jan 13, 2020

    Sign in to follow this  

    This is a repost from Atlassian's blog where the latest updates to the Atlassian cloud platform is posted. It is reposted here since the Atlassian blog does not have an RSS feed and so we can discuss the changes to the Atlassian Cloud architecture. You can follow these posts with the tag "atlassian cloud changes".

    Atlassian Cloud

    Your cloud-hosted products are supported by the Atlassian Cloud platform. This section usually includes changes related to multiple Atlassian Cloud products, site administration, and user management.

    Email users with suggested account changes rolling out.png

    From the Change details button, you can suggest that a user changes their account details to make their profile more consistent and easier to identify. Read more about administering Atlassian accounts.

    Give your users a Trusted permission rolling out.png

    From a user's Permission options, select Trusted to give certain users more responsibility. These users will be able to install and configure new products on your site and invite new users themselves.

    Claim accounts after verifying a domain rolling out.png

    To start managing accounts on your domain, we’ve included an additional step that requires you to claim accounts after verifying that you own the domain. From the table on the Domains page, click Claim accounts next to the verified domain. Read more about verifying a domain.

    Set your language and time zone for Jira and Confluence in your Atlassian account profile rolling out.png

    Rather than individually setting your language and time zone in Jira and Confluence, these preferences will soon come from your Atlassian account profile. Visit your account preferences to update these settings. It may take up to 10 mins before your updated preferences are reflected in Jira and Confluence.

     

    Jira platform

    Changes in this section usually apply to all Jira products. We'll tell you in the change description if something is only for a specific Jira product.

    New user profile cards rolling out.png

    When you hover over someone’s name in directories, on dashboards, and in user picker fields, you’ll now start to see rich profile cards with more information and a link to the user’s profile (if you have permission to see it).

    Next-gen: Epic panel in backlog rolling out.png

    You can now manage epics on the backlog of your next-gen project via the Epics panel, similar to how epic management works in classic Jira Software projects. Changes you make in the panel on the backlog will reflect on the Roadmap, and vice-versa.

    Advanced search (JQL): Search for content updated by a specific user

    Use the updatedBy() function to search for issues that were updated by a specific user, optionally within the specified time range. For example, if you want to find issues updated by John Smith between June and September 2018, enter issuekey IN updatedBy(jsmith, "2018/06/01", "2018/08/31"). Read more about the updatedBy() function.

    Search for and filter projects by their type with the "projectType" JQL field

    We added a new JQL field to search for and filter projects by their type. Type projectType to filter “software” (Jira Software) projects, “service_desk” (Jira Service Desk) projects, “business” (Jira Core) projects, or “ops” (Jira Ops) projects.

     

    Jira Software

    We're rolling out a new type of project known as next-gen. By default, any Jira Software licensed user can create their own next-gen project. These projects don't affect existing Jira projects, shared configurations, or your schemes. You can manage who's allowed to create next-gen projects with the new Create independent projects global permission. Read more about next-gen projects.

    GitHub app on the Atlassian Marketplace rolling out.png

    We've partnered with GitHub to build a new and improved integration, which you can install at the Atlassian Marketplace. This replaces the DVCS connector in Jira's system settings. Current GitHub integrations set up under the old method will continue to work, but new integrations must be set up using the app on the Atlassian Marketplace. We're rolling out this update gradually, so it may not be on your Jira Cloud site yet.

    This won't affect GitHub Enterprise integrations, which must still be set up via the DVCS connector.

    Next-gen: Roadmap issue hierarchy rolling out.png

    You can now expand an epic on your roadmap to see its child issues and their statuses. Learn more about managing epics on the roadmap.

    Next-gen: Create child issues on your roadmap rolling out.png

    You can now add child issues directly on your roadmap. Just hover over an epic, click the + icon, and give your issue a name. Learn more about managing epics on the roadmap.

    Next-gen: Environment system field in JSW

    Add Jira’s built-in Environment field to your issue types in next-gen projects. In your project, go to Project settings > Issue types and drag the Environment field into the Description section of the issue layout.

    Large backlogs load faster

    Big backlogs can take time to load, and teams usually work with a small chunk of the issues at a time. Knowing this and striving to make backlogs render faster, we've changed the default to display only 100 issues (90 from the top and 10 from the bottom) from your backlog. The remaining issues will be displayed if you click Show all issues.

    We've also introduced a number of backend changes that resulted in faster initial loading.

     

    Jira Service Desk

    Introducing multi-line fields to the issue view in next-gen projects  rolling out.pngnew this week.png

    You can now add multi-line fields to the issue view. These fields communicate long-form information to your team members and aren’t visible to your customers.

    To add multi-line fields, go to Project settings > Request types and add fields to the Description fields bucket.

    New issue view for Jira Service Desk  rolling out.png

    The new issue view groups key actions and information in a logical way, making it easier for you to scan and update requests. Learn more about the new issue view.

    Use keyboard shortcuts in your queues  rolling out.png

    Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate around your queues and get your work done faster. You can now move through issues, select their fields, and go to the issue view from your queues just by using your keyboard!

    Customer portal request details page redesign  rolling out.png

    We have redesigned the customer portal request details page to make it easier to use. You’ll notice we have added a rich text editor, sorted the activity stream from old to new, and have moved the location of the request fields, share button, approval and comment boxes.

    Maintenance complete on the customer portal user profile page  rolling out.png

    We have just completed some maintenance on the customer portal user profile page.

    We also introduced a new layout that is easier to use on mobile devices. Go team!

    Easier configuration for the new issue view  rolling out.png

    If you have the new issue view, you can now easily configure how your issue view looks for each request type.

    From your service desk project, go to Project settings > Request types and you'll find the new layout for making changes.

    Next-gen projects: Approve or decline requests  rolling out.png

    You can now add an approval stage to requests that should be approved before they’re resolved in next-gen projects. If a request has an approval stage, approvers can approve or decline the request from the issue view.

    Add an approval stage to a workflow by going to Project settings > Request types and then clicking Edit workflow. Learn more

    Global create can select request type and raise on behalf of  rolling out.png

    You can now create a request on behalf of your customers and set them as the reporter. Use the global create button ( + ), then select Raise this request on behalf of and add in your customer's email.

     

    Confluence

    We're extending editing improvements to all pages on Android  rolling out.png

    The editing improvements we made to blogs a few months ago are coming to the rest of your Android mobile pages, too. In addition to being faster and more reliable, your new pages are also responsive, optimized for readability, and have advanced tables. Some macros are still missing as we rebuild them, but you can check the list of changes and track updates to macros on our docs site.

    Annotate images in the new editor  rolling out.png

    Annotate images by adding text, inserting shapes and lines, using brushes, or adding a blur to a certain area.

    Confluence Cloud recent pages drawer  rolling out.png

    We’ve made it easier to get to the pages you visited or worked with most recently. A new action has been added to the global sidebar that presents you with a list of your recent pages; interaction-specific tabs help you narrow the list based on your actions, like visited, edited, or saved as draft.

    Share pages directly with your team  rolling out.png

    It’s now easier to share pages with everyone on your team, all in one go. When you click Share on any page or blog post, Confluence now lets you add a team – no need to enter each person individually. Learn more

    Jira issue URLs are converted to smart links  rolling out.png

    When you paste a Jira issue link into a Confluence page, the URL is converted to a smart link that displays the page icon and the page title. This works if the Jira and Confluence sites are linked or if they are both cloud versions.

    Convert pages to use the new editor  rolling out.png

    You can now convert your existing pages that were created using the legacy editor to use the new editing experience! Learn more

      The requests to get Portfolio for Jira for Cloud users have been loud and finally Atlassian released a Cloud version. They also made a very odd choice to rename Portfolio for Jira to Advanced Roadmaps and place it behind the Cloud Premium barrier.
      Portfolio for Jira has long been the better choice for Jira Server and Jira DC users. The features have been perfectly suited for managers to keep an overview over large programs and initiatives with relative ease. As such it has been the envy of Cloud users for years and it comes as no surprise that Atlassian would port this to Cloud given their focus on the cloud platform lately.
      Renaming Portfolio for Jira is also no surprise as it confuse managers with two portfolio products where the high level Portfolio tool Jira Align is the product Atlassian seem to want to focus on. Renaming it to Advanced Roadmaps is however a very strange choice as it is not a simple roadmap tool. It also make the naming confusion shift from Portfolio to Roadmaps as Cloud users have been using the limited Roadmaps feature for quite some time.
      The new Advanced Roadmaps is only available for Cloud Premium users. This makes sense as Atlassian want to push users into their new price model. Currently there is not much that would warrant double the price for Cloud Premium so Atlassian need something that is enticing enough for users to make the shift. Advanced Roadmaps could be one of those features, but they need more as Advanced Roadmaps cost $2.3/user and month at it's lowest level and Cloud Premium cost an additional $7/user and month.
      Feature wise Advanced Roadmaps is still great with the two main selling points of great overview and the ability to scale the issues with more levels. Here are some of the selling points from Atlassian:
      With the changes coming to Roadmaps where all projects will get them, and not just Next-Gen projects, combined with the promise that Advanced Roadmaps will somehow be connected to a more comprehensive whole this could be a pretty good thing for Cloud Premium users. Adding Advanced Roadmaps to Cloud Premium will now add the ability to scale issue types beyond the standard 3 levels, which is something people have asked for for a very long time.

      Will it be enough to warrant the high price tag for Cloud Premium? I doubt that as Advanced Roadmaps is only really useful when you pass a certain number of teams. Doubling the price tag will probably discourage most low to mid-range clients. The fact that you can only have a 7 day test version and that you need to setup a new cloud instance to even test this if you are on a regular cloud plan is also a problem. With more features added into Cloud Premium however I think more and more will make the shift over to that.
      Overall this is a good new addition and package it with the Cloud Premium offer will make it more accessible and therefore used, which is a good thing. It's a bit sad to see Atlassian being so aggressive in their way of forcing cloud users into their Premium tier that is making some old customers a bit annoyed, but I think it will be good in the long run.

      This video is about Halp's integration with Microsoft Teams. If you'd like more information or to try Halp in Microsoft Teams visit https://halp.com/microsoft-teams
    • By ©Jimi Wikman
      Atlassian has announced that they have acquired Halp. Halp is an interesting take on support for Slack that allow you to create support tickets directly from conversations in Slack. As Halp can also be integrated with Jira Service Desk it makes sense for Atlassian to make the investment to purchase Halp to further strengthen their service portfolio on the support side.
      Halp have made a bit of an impact in its only 12 months life span and with the simplicity of just posting an emote in Slack to create separate support tickets it has been a hit. Good integrations with Jira Service Desk and Zendesk has of course been a big part and now with integrations to Microsoft Teams it is even better.
      Not only will Halp make it so much easier to keep track of support questions in Slack, but by integrating with other tools such as Jira Service Desk, then you have a powerhouse. It will update on both sides of the integration allowing you to meet your clients where they feel most comfortable and still maintain proper workflows. You can even connect it to Confluence or Slack messages to create knowledge bases.
      This is of course another step to connect closer to Slack that purchased the rights to Atlassians previous chat products. Naturally Slack is very happy about this acquisition:
      In the future we will see deeper integrations with Jira Service Desk and Confluence for sure, but there are hints forr new integrations with OpsGenie and Trello for example. It will undoubtedly be an interesting journey to follow in the future.
