Release Notes for 10.69


Enhancements and Features

Trello connector now live!

Announced at the Atlassian Summit, you can now connect your Trello teams to teams already living in Jira Align. Sync each board as a kanban team, cards as work items, and track the progress of that team’s work against your program objectives.

Try this out for your development teams and supporting teams operating in Trello. If you're unfamiliar with supporting teams, they're teams like product design and documentation, who aren’t focused on development or QA, but still closely support the delivery streams tracked in Jira Align.

Check out the Trello Integration Guide, our blog post here, and reach out to your solution architect or customer success manager to get started.

New Links tray on work items

We added new Links tray to the bottom of work item details panels to provide quick access to important links. All existing External Links and External References have been converted to links. In addition, if the work item was created from an idea in Ideation, a link back to the original idea will display.

Improved Ideation views

We added two new ways to view ideas in the external Ideation portal. My Ideas displays all ideas the you've submitted. My subscriptions displays all ideas you've subscribed to. To support these filters, we added a Created by attribute to all ideas. When an idea is created, the user who creates the idea will be set as both the Created by user and the idea's Owner, although the owner can be changed. For existing ideas, the current owner will be set to the user who created the idea.

Roadmaps enhancements

  • You can now change the color of items on the roadmaps by a group attribute, improving the ability to differentiate the groups when viewing or sharing roadmaps.

  • Team and Strategic Driver were added to the Group by options. The Team option is only available for features and is based on the children stories' team assignment. The Strategic Driver option is only available for epics.

  • Applied filters now persist when refreshing the page or navigating away and coming back to roadmaps.

  • Theme Group and Type were added as filter options. Type is only available for the feature, capability, and epic roadmap views.

New API 2.0 resources and endpoints

  • We added a new resource for Ideation. You can now create and get ideas.

  • We added new endpoints were added to the User resource so that you can assign users to teams with a team role.
