Enhancements and Features 

Configuration bar filtering by Organization Structure

The Kanban view of the Story Backlog now supports filtering by the Organization Structure field in the Configuration bar. When filtered by organization structure, work items are shown when the owner or assignee is a member of the selected structure or child levels of the structure.

Configuration bar filtering by Product

The Kanban view of the Story Backlog now supports filtering by the Product field in the Configuration bar. When the view is filtered by product, stories are shown if that story is related to a feature that is aligned to the selected product or any child products.

The following objects and methods are now supported in the API 2.0:

  • Objectives can be created using the POST method
