Enhancements and Features

Jira state mapping update

For a better user experience when setting up the Jira connector with a Jira environment that contains many workflow statuses, we added a new, searchable field for users to select only the states they want to map to Jira Align states. Only the Jira statuses selected in this field will display in the state mapping table, reducing the time it takes to load the connector settings.

Time Tracking changes

The previously announced Time Tracking changes have been released in version 10.76. We've made multiple enhancements to our Time Tracking functionality to provide better usability and support more use cases. 

See our feature recap for details on the changes. Highlights include:

  • Work Codes have been renamed to Time Projects
  • Time projects are no longer locked to release vehicles
    • You may associate time projects with release vehicles, epics, or designate a time project as stand-alone
  • Additional customizable terms have been added to Platform Terminology > Time Tracking Terminology
  • Blended rates keep a history of rates used over time
  • Approval, status, and date settings work together

Story Acceptance Criteria APIs

You can now update story acceptance criteria using the PATCH and PUT methods.

Organization Structure removed from features

We've removed the Organization Structure field from the Details panel for features. Accordingly, we also made the following changes:

  • The Organization Structure filter is no longer selectable from the list of filters on the Features page
  • The Organization Structure column is no longer a selectable column on the Features page
  • We removed the options to display and require the Organization Structure field on features from the Details Panel Settings page

We plan to remove mentions of organization structure tied to features in other locations in Jira Align in a future release.

Configuration bar filtering by Organization Structure

The Capabilities and Objectives pages now support filtering by the Organization Structure field in the Configuration bar. When these pages are 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 Capabilities page now supports filtering by the Product field in the Configuration bar. When the page is filtered by product, capabilities are shown when any child features are assigned to the selected product or child products in a hierarchy.

For now, the Product field is not a selectable filter in the Configuration bar on the Objectives page.

Configuration bar filtering by Release Vehicle 

The Objectives page now supports filtering by the Release Vehicle field in the Configuration bar. When the page is filtered by release vehicle, objectives are shown when associated features are assigned to the selected release vehicle. Objectives that are associated with capabilities or epics will not display.
