Enhancements and Features
Strategy Room: New pyramid and work item links
We've replaced the Strategy Pyramid with an updated, more robust version. The pyramid can still be managed through platform terminology and has added visibility into lower-level objectives with complimentary work items.
Throughout the Strategy Room, we also added links from work item names to their respective grid pages, pre-filtered with the Strategy Room settings, so that you can review the set of items relevant to your strategic snapshot.
Jira Software next-gen project support
The Jira connector now supports Jira Software next-gen projects! In October of 2018, Jira Software launched this project type for its cloud offering, which optimizes for team autonomy. Each project has a unique configuration, which results in unique issue types, fields, statuses, and more.
To support these project types, we enhanced the connector to support project-specific settings. Find these settings from the Jira Projects table by selecting the project key and then the Next-Gen Settings tab. There, you can identify the issue types to sync with Jira Align work items (defects, tasks, stories, and features), custom fields to sync to Jira Align work item attributes, and map Jira statuses to Jira Align states.
Other connector settings, like enabling the bi-directional sync of features, release vehicles, or statuses are global. Next-gen projects will inherit these settings from the Jira Setup tab.
Performance: User-based dropdown replacement
For better user experience with a long list of users, we changed the type of dropdown to load the list by portions. Changes were applied for user-based dropdowns on the Brainstorming, Ideation - Admins, Contributors, Escalation, and Lean Use Cases slide-outs, as well as the list of release vehicles on the Mass Edit bar.
Additional performance enhancements
To increase performance, we optimized database usage on the Roadmaps page and optimized image loading on the Jira Align home page.
