    Atlassian Cloud changes Mar 2 to Mar 9, 2020

    • Like 1

    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 withe 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 icon.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 icon.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 icon.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.

     

    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.

    Improved navigation in Jira Cloud rolling out icon.png new this week¨.png

    We’ve created an improved navigation experience that always appears at the top of the screen, with clearly labeled buttons and menus to help you search, create, and resume your work. Find out more about our improved navigation experience and when you can try it out.

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

    New issue view: Add web links rolling out icon.png

    Save time and add context to your issues by adding web links in the new issue view. Web links are links to any URL, but they appear prominently below the issue description where they’re easy for you and other issue viewers to find. Use them to link to important sites that teammates might need to better understand an issue.

    We’re also moving all issue link types, including web links, into the Link issue button. Click Link issue to quickly link related issues or click the down arrow on the button to add links to web pages and Confluence pages (if you have a linked Confluence site).

    Find issues you've recently worked on rolling out icon.png

    We’ve added a new Worked on tab to the Your work page. This tab lets you quickly find and resume work on issues you’ve updated recently. Head to Your work > Worked on to get started.

     

    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 icon.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: Create child issues on your roadmap rolling out icon.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.

    Kanban boards just got faster rolling out icon.png

    Is your team so productive, their 'Done' column is always overflowing? Too many issues on a board can slow it down and make you scroll way too much. To fix this, we’re bringing what we’ve codenamed “Fast Kanban”—a way to keep your board fresh and clean, and as quick as a flash.

    The idea behind it is simple. The ‘Done’ column will now show only issues that have been updated (in any way) in the last 2 weeks, hiding the rest. Less noise on your board means happier teams. Any project admin can change the retention period, or choose to display all issues, if they prefer. Learn more

    Copy issue links from boards and backlogs rolling out icon.png

    Don’t spend time opening and closing issues just to copy a link to the issue. From a board or backlog, right-click on an issue and choose Copy issue link.

     

    Jira Service Desk

    New issue view for Jira Service Desk rolling out icon.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 icon.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!

    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.

    Pre-population of Portal request create field rolling out icon.png

    We’ve made it easier for you to pre-populate certain fields in the request create page of the Portal, based on your customer’s URL parameters.

     

    Confluence

    Your editing experience just got an upgrade rolling out icon.png

    The new Confluence editor allows anyone to create beautiful, powerful pages effortlessly. Check out the editor roadmap to learn more.

    End of support for nested tables rolling out icon.png

    As we work on creating a more stable editing experience, we will no longer support nested tables - that is, a table within a list, block quotes, or another table. Existing nested tables will not be affected, you simply won't be able to create new nested tables.

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

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

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

    New loading progress bar

    Now when a page is loading, you’ll see a thin blue loading bar slide across your screen, just under the top navigation, to give you a better idea how quickly your page is loading. This is for users with the improved navigation experience activated.

      Need help with next-gen projects or service desks? Try searching for what you need  
      We’ve improved how to get help with your next-gen project or service desk. We’ve moved our documentation into Jira Software and Jira Service Desk to help you find relevant help to your questions.
      To search for help content in next-gen projects or service desks:

      Issue collector no longer matches the submitter's user session to make them the reporter

      To improve issue security, project and issue keys are no longer displayed in the success message after submitting feedback on an issue collector (unless the project is open to anyone on the web).

      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 withe 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  
      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 
      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 
      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.
       
      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.
      Next-gen: Epic panel in backlog  
      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.
      New issue view: Add web links 
      Save time and add context to your issues by adding web links in the new issue view. Web links are links to any URL, but they appear prominently below the issue description where they’re easy for you and other issue viewers to find. Use them to link to important sites that teammates might need to better understand an issue.
      We’re also moving all issue link types, including web links, into the Link issue button. Click Link issue to quickly link related issues or click the down arrow on the button to add links to web pages and Confluence pages (if you have a linked Confluence site).
      Find issues you've recently worked on 
      We’ve added a new Worked on tab to the Your work page. This tab lets you quickly find and resume work on issues you’ve updated recently. Head to Your work > Worked on to get started.
       
      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 
      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: Create child issues on your roadmap 
      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.
      Kanban boards just got faster 
      Is your team so productive, their 'Done' column is always overflowing? Too many issues on a board can slow it down and make you scroll way too much. To fix this, we’re bringing what we’ve codenamed “Fast Kanban”—a way to keep your board fresh and clean, and as quick as a flash.
      The idea behind it is simple. The ‘Done’ column will now show only issues that have been updated (in any way) in the last 2 weeks, hiding the rest. Less noise on your board means happier teams. Any project admin can change the retention period, or choose to display all issues, if they prefer. Learn more
      Copy issue links from boards and backlogs 
      Don’t spend time opening and closing issues just to copy a link to the issue. From a board or backlog, right-click on an issue and choose Copy issue link.
       
      Jira Service Desk
      New issue view for Jira Service Desk 
      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 
      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!
      Global create can select request type and raise on behalf of 
      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
      Your editing experience just got an upgrade 
      The new Confluence editor allows anyone to create beautiful, powerful pages effortlessly. Check out the editor roadmap to learn more.
      End of support for nested tables 
      As we work on creating a more stable editing experience, we will no longer support nested tables - that is, a table within a list, block quotes, or another table. Existing nested tables will not be affected, you simply won't be able to create new nested tables.
      We're extending editing improvements to all pages on Android 
      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.
      Jira issue URLs are converted to smart links 
      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 
      You can now convert your existing pages that were created using the legacy editor to use the new editing experience! Learn more

      The Portfolio for Jira plan Confluence macro lets you embed a Portfolio for Jira Server and Data Center plan in a Confluence page. Join key stakeholders in the spaces where business goals are built and tracked, and share how work is progressing across multiple projects and teams.
      New loading progress bar 
      Now when a page is loading, you’ll see a thin blue loading bar slide across your screen, just under the top navigation, to give you a better idea how quickly your page is loading. This is for users with the improved navigation experience activated.
       
      Bitbucket
      Improved process to export Jira issue data from Bitbucket 
      We’ve simplified the way you export Jira issue data from Bitbucket.
      New Code Review - Limit the amount of rendered diff content 
      Limits the amount of pull request content rendered in the diff and file tree to improve browser performance. Limits include the overall # of files and # of lines for the entire diff. Learn more

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

      We improved our in-product help experience. Try the Help button in the navigation bar to see help articles related to your next-gen project or service desk.
      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.
      Portfolio for Jira - Scheduling Team Sorting 
      When scheduling work, Portfolio now prioritizes teams that have associated issue sources over teams that don't. Also, teams without issue sources will only be considered if they have capacity to complete work earlier.

      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.
      Jira admins: We made a change to time tracking 
      Time tracking is a core feature of Jira Cloud products. We’ve looked into how people use this feature and found that the large majority of Jira Cloud sites never interact with the feature’s toggle or try to disable the feature. So, we removed its toggle in Jira’s system administration settings.
      From now on, time tracking is always enabled in Jira Cloud products.
      You can control whether the feature is used in your projects by:
      Showing or hiding the Time tracking field in your classic projects' field configurations. Learn more about field configurations. Adding or removing the Time tracking field on your next-gen projects' issue types. Learn how to customize an issue’s fields in next-gen projects. New user profile cards 
      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).
      Tame your site’s custom fields
      See the number of custom fields on your site, so you know if they’re getting out of hand. We've introduced icons to illustrate each type of custom field so you can easily identify them. We’ve also grouped screens and contexts for each custom field into a single Screens and contexts column to make them easier to edit and make the page more readable. Head to Jira settings > Issues > Custom fields to check it out.
      Click a field’s screens or contexts links to:
      Edit its name and description. Associate it with screens. Create, edit, or delete contexts. Set or edit its default value. Learn more about custom fields.
      Next-gen: Epic panel in backlog 
      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.
      Having trouble with next-gen projects? Better help is here. 
      We improved our in-product help experience. Try the Help button in the navigation bar to see help articles related to your next-gen project or service desk.
      Change Jira wallboards background color to black
      This change is to fix the problem identified in the issue JRACLOUD-73231. Wallboard backgrounds are now black to improve the visibility of gadgets.
      Portfolio for Jira - Team Offset Change 
      Portfolio has changed how it schedules work for teams to better reflect planning reality.
      Previously, if one of the teams in the plan had an active sprint that had already started in the past, Portfolio would schedule work for that team in the past. However, just because that team had an active sprint that’s already started, Portfolio would go ahead and schedule work for other teams in the plan, even if these teams didn’t have an active sprint that’s started in the past.
      We’ve changed this so work will no longer be scheduled for the other teams in the plan that don’t have an active sprint. Rather, Portfolio will now schedule work for these teams starting the next day.
      Portfolio for Jira - Scheduling Team Sorting
      When scheduling work, Portfolio now prioritizes teams that have associated issue sources over teams that don't. Also, teams without issue sources will only be considered if they have capacity to complete work earlier.
      Portfolio for Jira - Scheduling with Adapted Sprint Dates 
      Previously, the capacity of the last day of a sprint would be fully allocated to the sprint itself. This makes a 2-week sprint on a board have 11 work days of capacity in Portfolio.
      We've now improved capacity calculation so that the capacity of a sprint's last day will no longer be allocated to the sprint itself. A 2-week sprint will now have 10 work days of capacity.
