[Article] Jira Service Management merges several products into one


Recommended Posts

  • Owner

Today Atlassian announced the new package for their ITSM solution. The new package is called Jira Service Management and it is a bundle of Jira Service Desk, Opsgenie. This is a pretty sweet package and it is quite powerful for anyone who want to combine Agile and ITIL4 as a power combo for the future.

This is quite the change for Atlassian and it is probably to compete with ServiceNow that has had a stronger ITSM solution as their main selling point. This new service package, and especially the new name for it, will probably pave way for more companies to look at Atlassian even for their ITSM solutions.

This new package, combined with Jira Software, Confluence and Bitbucket now means that you get a complete package for ITSM and Agile methodologies. There will be improved integrations with Insight, the asset management solution Atlassian purchased from Mindville earlier this year. This will greatly improve the usefulness of the Atlassian ITSM package.

This comes at a pretty good time as I am building this for several clients, and they will be very happy about these new changes.

      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.
      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:
      If not already there, navigate to your next-gen project or service desk. From the navigation bar, select 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 
      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 
      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 
      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 
      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 
      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 
      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 
      When viewing your backlog, you can now copy a link to an issue to your clipboard. To try it out:
      Navigate to your next-gen project backlog. Locate the issue you want a link for. 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 
      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 
      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  
      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 
      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
      Confluence navigation just got better 
      Get to information faster with improved navigation – making what you need visible from anywhere in Confluence. Learn more
      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.
       
      Bitbucket
      A merge checklist has been added to the right sidebar of the new pull request experience 
      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 
      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 
      You can now enable git clone options at a step level. Check out the docs to learn more.

      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.

      Atlassian has now announced that the cloud versions of Jira Software, Confluence, Jira Service Desk, and Jira Core will be available for small teams for free. This extent the free offer for small teams where Atlassian already offer free licenses for Trello, Bitbucket and Opsgenie.
      This announcement is not unexpected, but it comes with great timing now that so many are forced to work on remote due to the Corona situation. Allowing small companies the opportunity to collaborate using Jira, Confluence and Service Desk is a great opportunity to get organized for remote work.
      The licenses that are now free are the same tier as the ones that was previously available for $10. That means that you get Jira, Opsgenie and Confluence with 10 users for free. For Jira Service Desk you get 3 agents for free as well. This may seem small, but for many small companies this will be a welcome solution to get organized for remote work for free.
      If you already have a license for these tiers, then you can go into your administration section and change the plans under manage subscriptions. Just click on change next to your current plan and select the free plan.
      If you are a small company that want to know how you can use this opportunity, then please add a comment here or in the discussion forum and I will help you with your setup for free.
      You can sign up for the free services a the link https://www.atlassian.com/software/free.

      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.

      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.
