    SPACE from JetBrains - The integrated team environment

    • Like 1

    During KotlinConf in December 2019 Jetbrains made a special announcement where they presented SPACE. This is Jetbrain's new collaborative tool that they refer to as a integrated team environment. In short this is a developer focused collaboration space that combines the power of tools such as GitHub, Slack, Azure DevOps, Confluence, Trello, and Outlook Calendar.

    On paper this looks very impressive with a massive tool set. Once you start playing around with it it is even more impressive, even if there are some things that in the current release are a bit annoying. The perhaps most annoying part is that SPACE do not yet have a distraction free mode for the chat. Despite that it has pretty much everything you as a developer can need.

    You have your documentation spaces, your issue tracker, chat, Git manager, code reviews and deployment tools. You even have integrations to the IDE if you are using IntelliJ and a ton of other stuff that really make this an amazing package for developers. SPACE is still very new and there are a lot of things being developed that will make this package even more impressive soon.

    If we look at the areas where SPACE seem to be lacking at the moment I have seen some negative comments regarding it's UI and UX. Personally I do not think it's to bad and having worked with developers for a long time I know that they are usually not that concerned about esthetics as long as it make their life easier. It can use some love for sure, but that is not my main concern to be honest.

    This is very much a developers setup and as such it lack the business side of things. While documents is planned and while there is a checklist feature that will not take care of business planning or requirement management. SPACE would either need to have integrations for these kind of tools, or Jetbrains need to build them. I also would like to see some form of design system tied into this so they can have this as a complete tool set.

    I love the first iteration of SPACE and I think a lot of developers will want to use it. The lack of support for business processes however probably will limit the number of companies that will embrace SPACE at the moment. It will probably be a year or two before we will see it in the bigger organizations and until then I think it will put some pressure on other tools to step up their game.

      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.
      See location details in the audit log 
      The audit log has a new Location column that displays the IP address where the activity took place. Read more about audit logging.
      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.
      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.
      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).
      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.
      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 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.
      Enforce CSFR protection on Agile 2.0 mutations 
      If a user attempts to perform any JSW create/update action with a stale Xsrf token, they will be presented with an error flag with a message:
      Our session has expired
      Refresh the page and try again
      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: Roadmap issue hierarchy
      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 
      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.
       
      Jira Service Desk
      Automatically clear the value of a request's field when changing its status in your next-gen service desk  
      We improved our “Update a request field” workflow rule. Now, you can use the rule to clear your request’s fields when someone moves the request using a specific transition.
      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!
      Customer portal request details page redesign 
      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 
      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 
      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.
      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
      Convert legacy editor pages to the new editor  
      Our goal is to allow you to convert your pages from the legacy editor to the new editor without data loss and with little to no changes to the look and feel of the content, which is why you’ll have control over which pages get converted and when. You'll also have the option to preview any page before converting it. We want you to feel comfortable with the process. You'll also have the chance to restore a page to its previous, legacy editor version after conversion. Learn more
      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.
      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.
      Annotate images in the new editor 
      Annotate images by adding text, inserting shapes and lines, using brushes, or adding a blur to a certain area.
      Confluence Cloud recent pages drawer 
      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 
      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 
      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
      Confluence navigation just got better 
      Get to information faster with improved navigation – making what you need visible from anywhere in Confluence. Learn more
      Align and resize images in tables in the new editor

      Portfolio for Jira plan macro 
      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.
      Improved expand element replaces the macro 
      Content creators just got a better way to control the way information is presented. The existing expand macro has been replaced with a quicker, easier way to include the expand functionality. Insert the improved expand element using /expand or by inserting the element from the editor's Insert toolbar.
