    Atlassian Cloud changes Nov 4 to Nov 11, 2019

    • Interresting 1

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    New user profile cards

    ROLLING OUT

    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).

     

    New issue view: Rich user profile cards

    ROLLING OUT

    Get to know your team even faster. Our new user profile card provides more user information and a link to the user’s profile (if you have permission to see it). You’ll see it when you hover over someone’s name in user-picker fields (assignee, reporter, and other custom fields) and in issue activity feeds (comments, history, and the work log).

     

    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.

     

    New issue view for Jira Software

    ROLLING OUT

    Get a consistent view and edit experience with our new issue view for Jira Software. Click an issue to see its details, edit any field with a click, and add content with the quick-add buttons (under the issue summary). Take a look at the documentation for more info.

    We're adding new features and refining the design all the time, so click Give feedback on the issue view to let us know what you think.

     

    GitHub app on the Atlassian Marketplace

    ROLLING OUT

    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.

     

    Jira Service Desk

    Issues with the customer organizations field now use the organization name instead of ID when exporting to CSV

    ROLLING OUT NEW THIS WEEK

    When exporting Jira issues to CSV from the Jira Issue Navigator, the Custom field (Organizations) now contains the name of the organizations linked to the issue. The field previously contained the organization ID, which was not valuable for exports used for reporting.

    As part of this change, a CSV import can now match organizations by both their ID and their name. No changes are needed if you use CSV export files for import.

     

    Maintenance complete on the Request and Approvals pages

    ROLLING OUT NEW THIS WEEK

    We've completed some maintenance to the customer portal, you may notice some cosmetic updates to the Request and Approvals pages.

     

    New issue view for Jira Service Desk

    ROLLING OUT

    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

    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

    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.

     

    Easier configuration for the new issue view

    ROLLING OUT

    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.

     

    Improved interface for your customer portal settings

    ROLLING OUT

    We’ve given the customer portal page in your project settings a visual overhaul. Settings are under suitable headings, text sizes are aligned, and overall, the page has a cleaner interface. Don’t worry, we haven’t removed any functionality.

    To see the new design in a classic project, go to Project settings > Portal settings.

    To see the new design in a next-gen project, go to Project settings > Channels > Customer portal.

     

    Confluence

    Portfolio for Jira plan macro

    ROLLING OUT NEW THIS WEEK

    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.

     

    Blogs are getting the first round of editing improvements

    ROLLING OUT

    If you've ever thought 'I wish it was easier to read blogs on mobile.... or on other devices', then this change is for you. Blogs are getting fixed-width layouts to improve readability across all devices. We're making a bunch of other updates to improve editing reliability and clean up your editing experience, so some macros may be temporarily unavailable while they're under maintenance. You can read more about these changes on our docs site.

     

    Teams have arrived in Confluence retrospectives!

    ROLLING OUT

    Instead of having to individually add each member of your team to a retrospective, Confluence now lets you assign people to Teams, so you can bulk add everyone at once.

    Use the retrospective template to see Teams in action. You can edit Teams through the retrospective-creation process, and add or edit other attendees for each retrospective you create.

     

    We're extending editing improvements to all pages on Android

    ROLLING OUT

    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.

     

    Confluence Cloud recent pages drawer

    ROLLING OUT

    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

    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

     

    Bitbucket

    Retarget stacked Pull Requests

    ROLLING OUT NEW THIS WEEK

    Bitbucket will retarget the dependent pull requests to the branch that you're merging into, before closing the branch of the pull request you're merging. Previously, if there were dependent pull requests, you needed to update them manually with the new target branch. You will now see a checkbox with a link to the affected pull requests that will be retargeted.

      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.
