    Atlassian Cloud changes Mar 30 to Apr 6, 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.

    Need help with next-gen projects or service desks? Try searching for what you need rolling out icon.png new this week¨.png

    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:

    1. If not already there, navigate to your next-gen project or service desk.
    2. From the navigation bar, select (question)Help.

    When you reach out for help, Jira will suggest relevant content based on the screen you’re currently viewing. To find other help, use the search bar.

    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.

    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.

    Improved navigation in Jira Cloud rolling out icon.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.

    New issue view: Improved date formatting in the history feed

    Dates in the history are now more consistent. They’ll correctly show when changes happened relative to your time zone and be translated into the language you’ve chosen for Jira.

    Select your email notifications for issue activity from personal settings

    Jira sends email notifications when certain activities occur on issues. In your personal settings, you can now choose whether you want these notifications. If you do, you can toggle notifications for issue activity when you’re a watcher, reporter, assignee on an issue, when someone mentions you, and when you make changes to an issue. Learn more about choosing email notifications.

    Issue collector no longer matches the submitter's user session to make them the reporter rolling out icon.png

    We’ve adapted our issue collectors to the Chrome browser’s new cookie security features, but have had to change how they work. The issue collector no longer matches a submitter’s user session to make them the reporter. You can still match them by email address.

    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).

    Learn more about using the issue collector.

     

    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.

    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

    Quickly copy a link to an issue in your next-gen project backlog rolling out icon.png

    When viewing your backlog, you can now copy a link to an issue to your clipboard. To try it out:

    1. Navigate to your next-gen project backlog.
    2. Locate the issue you want a link for.
    3. Select More () > Copy issue link.

    The link to the issue is copied to your clipboard, ready for you to paste into a Confluence page, Slack message, or anywhere you might want to share your issue’s 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

    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!

    Remind agents to update empty fields when moving a request in your next-gen service desk rolling out icon.png

    We added another rule to your next-gen service desk workflows. Now, you can prompt your agents to complete an empty field when they use a specific transition to change an issue’s status. The rule removes a burden on your teams to remember to fill in specific fields until they matter. It keeps them focused on the important work of helping your customers.

    To learn more about the rule, and get an example of how to use it, check out our complete documentation on next-gen workflow rules.

     

    Confluence

    You can now create spaces on Android mobile rolling out icon.png new this week¨.png

    Android users can now create spaces on-the-go in the Confluence mobile app. You can find this action in the overflow menu (•••) in the top right corner of the app.

    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

    Confluence navigation just got better rolling out icon.png

    Get to information faster with improved navigation – making what you need visible from anywhere in Confluence. Learn more

    Portfolio for Jira plan macro rolling out icon.png

    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.

     

    Bitbucket

    A merge checklist has been added to the right sidebar of the new pull request experience new this week¨.png

    In the new pull request experience, you can now view any merge checks via the sidebar located on the right side of a pull request. Merge checks allow admins to recommend (on standard plan) or require (on premium plan) specific conditions on merges for individual branches or branch patterns. Merge checks work in tandem with branch permissions to give your team flexibility and control over your development workflow.

    New Code Review - Limit the amount of rendered diff content rolling out icon.png

    Limits the amount of pull request content rendered in the diff and file tree to improve browser performance. Limits include the overall number of files and number of lines for the entire diff. Learn more

    Diff comment replies limited to one level of indentation

    In the new code review experience, replies to diff comments are now limited to one level of indentation, meaning all replies are still displayed but they are all at the same level of alignment. Along with the updated display, Bitbucket Cloud now auto-populates the @mention of the person to whom you are replying.

    Enable git clone options at step level rolling out icon.png

    You can now enable git clone options at a step level. Check out the docs to 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.
