Enhancements and Features

Note: As we continue to develop major enhancements around objectives, objective import functionality is temporarily unavailable beginning in version 10.68. We'll update you in future release notes when the functionality has been reinstated.

Objectives relationship mapping

We’ve added mapping between objective levels and work item types. Mappings are portfolio-specific, and control what work item type displays as an additional section in an objective's Details panel. Access the Objective Mappings link from a portfolio's Details panel to make changes:



  • If you have previously associated more than one work item type with an existing objective, work items not mapped to that objective level retain their relationships and will impact reports, but will not display in Details panels.
  • The Individual Tier section displays in the Manage Objective Mappings dialog but does not currently impact data.  

Objectives Tree report enhancements

We’ve added a list view option to the Objectives Tree report to provide another way to visualize your objective/goal hierarchy and key results:


We’ve also added tabs to the top of the page that correspond to each level of objective or goal hierarchy:


In the list view, only objectives or goals at the level of the selected tab will display as top-level rows. Child objectives and goals can be viewed by expanding each row

In the family tree view, selecting a tab will filter the choices in the Choose Root dropdown menu; only objectives or goals at the selected level will be available.

Version 2 of REST API

We’ve launched the first release of the newest Jira Align REST API, version 2. Not all functions in version 1 of the API are currently available in version 2. Review our REST API 2.0 overview for more information, including a full listing of the available objects and commands.
