Enhancements and Features

Preparing for a new Jira Server & Data Center feature

To prepare for an exciting new feature coming to Jira Server & Data Center, we’re making several changes to the connector settings UI. First, on the Jira Settings page, the Jira issue type name is no longer required to set up bi-directional syncing. Only the issue type ID needs to be entered. The issue type name will still display but is for informational purposes only.


On the Custom Issue Types tab, instead of entering an issue type name, you’ll need to enter the issue type ID (the column header has been updated to prompt for the ID). Existing issue type mappings will be automatically updated to display the ID instead of the name.

Finally, a similar change was made to the link actions setup in the Manage Custom Fields settings panel. Instead of entering an issue type name, you’ll need to enter the issue type ID (the column header has been updated to prompt for the ID). Existing link actions will be automatically updated to display the ID instead of the name.

Changes to backlog ranking

To address an issue where the ranks of work items in the unassigned backlog weren’t consistent, we’ve made some changes to what you can see and do in the unassigned backlog. Now, when a program and a program increment are selected in the Configuration bar, we’ve disabled ranking work items inside the Feature, Capability, and Epic Backlogs' unassigned backlog small view. In this view, we’ve also disabled dragging and drop unassigned features into the program increment backlog on the left of the unassigned backlog.

To rank items in the unassigned backlog, we’ve added a message to the unassigned backlog small view. The link will take you into the Feature, Capability, or Epic Backlog, with only a program selected in the Configuration bar. From this backlog view, you can change the rank of all items, including unassigned items.


Objectives Tree enhancements

The list view of the Objectives Tree can now be filtered by the following attributes:

  • Status
  • Health
  • Target Completion
  • Owner

Additionally, you can choose the following fields to display as columns on the page:

  • Status
  • Health
  • Target Completion

Finally, the Work Progress column for objectives was changed to display the percentage of completed work items directly tied to the objective. For goals, it still displays the percentage of completed stories related to the goal.
