Enhancements and Features
Objectives hierarchy update
We updated the objective hierarchy so that themes can only be associated with portfolio objectives. Existing relationships between themes and program or solution objectives have been retained and will continue to display on grid pages.
Score-based key results
We've added Score as a new metric type when creating key results. This type allows you to use the 0.0-1.0 scoring scale with custom criteria. After creating a score key result, a window displays that lets you define success criteria for each decimal value.
No Score indicator for objectives and key results
When viewing strategies, objectives, or key results, users will see N/S (No Score) when there are no metric values to display. For example:
- A key result will display N/S if it has no current score override and no value updates.
- A strategy or objective will display N/S if it doesn't have a score override and if it doesn't have any key result metric values.
- If an objective has two key results, one with a score of 0.5 and the other with N/S, then the objective's score will display as 0.25.
These changes will be applied everywhere scores are shown (work item Details panels, Strategy Room, Objective Tree, Backlog, etc.).
Not equal to filtering added to work item grids
Users can now select a not equal to (≠) operator when filtering work item grid pages:
We’ll continue to add support for this operator on other grids in future releases.
Forecast usability improvements
We've made a couple of enhancements to the Forecast page:
- Remaining allocation values will turn red in real-time if a program or team has been over-allocated. This enables users to quickly see the impacts of new or adjusted estimates.
- When scrolling horizontally, work item names are locked so that users can easily enter or review estimates for a specific work item.
Speed time to integrate Jira teams with Jira Align
Previously, users had to wait 2-4 hours for the normal board timer sync to complete before they could verify sprint mappings and import the team’s Jira backlog.
In the Jira Align 10.70 release, we enhanced the “Jira Integration” page to show newly added boards that have not yet synced from Jira. Now, users can add boards, run a custom board sync (from the Jira Integration page) with only the newly added boards, and within minutes, verify sprint mappings and import the team’s Jira backlog. For step by step instructions, please view the best practices community post here.
Jira Project field moved in Details slide-out panels
The Jira Project field is now displayed directly under the Program field(s) inside of work item Details slide-out panels, to ensure the field is more visible. The field displays in Details panels when a program is integrated with a Jira project.

Jira Align BI Enhancements and Features
- We filled in time tracking gaps.
- We added the Parking Lot Flag to core work items.
- We cleaned up objects for Jira boards, Jira projects, and work code.
- We added additional foreign keys to risks, release vehicles and users.
- We added a Tag List CSV view.
Organization String Path
Export_dw schema view. Identical to the Organization object, except that it replaces the hierarchy ID-based [Organization Structure Path] with an NVARCHAR(MAX) column of the same name. The BI API GetTable operation does not support the hierarchy IDD, so this was created as an alternate view to call the same data via API.
Tag List CSV
Distinct list of Tag contents in CSV form
Renamed - The original object was "Jira_Board". The "Jira Board" object was created to maintain consistency with naming conventions. The old object was not removed; both return the same content
|Renamed - The original object was "Jira_Project". The "Jira Project" object was created to maintain consistency with naming conventions. The old object was not removed; both return the same content
