Enhancements and Features
API 2.0 updates
We improved the Key Results API score field to always show either the current score, or the current score override value. Previously, the score field would be null if a score was overridden. We also introduced a boolean scoreOverriden field to denote when a score has been overridden.
We also introduced a new setting to enable or disable access to API tokens in the Jira Align UI. This setting, called Enable API Token Access is located under Admin > Platform > Security. When this is set to Yes, anyone will be able to generate and copy their API tokens from their user profiles. When this is set to No, only Super Admins will be able to generate and copy their API tokens. This does not impact existing tokens being used for API calls.
If you haven’t already, please see our Community post about upcoming changes to the API: API 2.0 Breaking Changes Coming to 10.92.
Import warning if template headers or columns are missing
During import, whenever users were missing headers or column names in their import template, the import would fail for the work items that were missing the headers or column names. We want to provide more clarity into what went wrong, so we’ve introduced a new warning toaster that will display if this happens, along with which work items couldn’t be imported.
Jira connector: Sync dates on features
Jira custom fields can now be mapped to Portfolio Ask, Start/Initiation, and Target Completion dates on Jira Align features. You can configure these mappings under Admin > Jira Settings > Jira Setup > Custom Fields, and can be set to sync bidirectionally. Please note, when you set up these mappings, the information in the application where the first update is made will sync to the other. For example, if Jira is your current source of truth and the Jira Align item is updated before the Jira item, the dates in Jira Align will sync to Jira. In this case, if Jira is the source of truth, we recommend setting up the mappings during off-hours and then running a JQL to pull the information to Jira Align.
