Enhancements and Features

Kanban backlog WIP limits for features

Work In Progress (WIP) limits are now available on the Feature Backlog Kanban board view. Now you can define WIP limits in a Process Flow (formerly known as Value Streams) configuration that will be scoped to the process flow’s associated programs. When a WIP limit is exceeded, the corresponding column headers will turn red.


Jira connector performance: New setting to remove a very expensive Jira API call

To set the Accepted By field on stories in Jira Align, the connector makes an API call to search the Jira issue changelog (for the user that resolved the issue). For issues with long change histories, this can be a very expensive API call and significantly slow the time it takes to sync the issue. In this release, we added a Sync Jira resolver name on stories setting under Administration > Jira Settings > Jira Setup. When set to No, the connector will not search the Jira changelog for the user that resolved the issue. On the Jira Align story, the Accepted By label will be removed and the logs will show that the story was accepted by the connector. This setting is set to Yes by default, but for those experiencing performance issues when syncing thousands to tens of thousands of Jira issues every day, we recommend setting this to No.

Jira connector performance: Resync Future Sprints call optimization

We optimized connector sync performance by scoping the set Jira API calls made when clicking the Resync Future Sprints button on the Jira Sprints page. Previously, the connector would make API calls against all integrated Jira projects. Now, the connector will only make API calls against the Jira projects that the board filter is shared with.
