Please see Work Tree view enhancements below for details on the additional feature included in version 10.84.
Enhancements and Features
We've made it easier to navigate between the five views available on the Work Tree page:
- The View dropdown found in the Extra Configs menu has been renamed Tree View and is now accessible from the top-left of the page
- The Narrow Filter Report toggle found in the Extra Configs menu has been renamed Narrow to Program and Program Increment and is now accessible from the top-right of the page
- Available from the Top-Down, Team, and Theme Group views
- Info messages describing the view selections entered display at the top of the page
- These changes address JIRAALIGN-1332
Performance: Work Tree
For better performance when using views inside the Work Tree page, we have removed the following controls:
- Hours column — all views
- Score column — Top-Down, Bottom-Up, and Team views
- Quick Expand button — all views
- Reset Charts button — Strategy and Theme Group views
- This change was made as these views do not contain charts
Additionally, we moved the visibility controls for the Health column to the Extra Configs page menu. By default, the column is not displayed.
When accessing the Strategy view, child items are now loaded on-demand when you expand a parent level. Previously, all children were loaded in the background after first selecting a snapshot, causing performance issues.
Performance: Strategy Tree
For better performance when accessing the Strategy Tree page, child items in the tree are loaded on-demand after expanding a parent item.
Performance: Link Maps
Instances that contain a large number of work items within a portfolio and program increment combination previously experienced timeout errors when attempting to set up a link map.
We have enhanced the selector for work items when creating or editing link maps with our more performant dropdown, which supports search functionality and displays the top 150 results:
Work Item Links
Predecessor and Successor work item links for themes, epics, capabilities, and features may now span across multiple portfolios. These links will display in the View the Predecessor and Successors tray, will be counted in the Program Room, and will display on the Program Board.
Strategic Snapshots can now be created (POST), read (GET), and updated PUT/PATCH using the REST API.
Training Simulation updates
The video and computer-based-training content found in the Training Simulation Checklists has been updated to show the current version of Jira Align and Atlassian branding. Administrators may enable or disable Training Simulations from the Administration > Platform settings page.
