The Atlassian Jira Align team is pleased to announce Jira Align v.10.111.
Enhancements and Features
These features for 10.111 were released to environments on the continuous release track on August 26, 2022, in version 10.111.0. The features will then be released to environments on the bundled release track on September 9, 2022, in version 10.111.2:
Upcoming removal of Awards page
In version 10.112.0, we’ll be removing the Awards / Shout-Outs functionality from Jira Align. Awards is a seldom-used feature that allows you to create custom badges and point values that display on a recipient’s profile page.
After reviewing recent usage data, it became clear that this functionality was not providing significant value. By removing this feature and streamlining our codebase, we’ll have more capacity to address defect fixes across the product. These changes will also reduce our testing overhead, which will allow us to build and ship enhancements more rapidly.
Pages that will be removed include:
Note: For a short time, you may still see references to previously-granted awards on a user’s profile page.
If you have used the Awards / Shout-Outs functionality in the past and would like to make a record of those entries, please visit these pages prior to version 10.112.0 to capture your data. You can use screenshots to make a record of past awards to input into another system. From the Shout-Out Awards list page, you can right-click on an award icon and select Save Image As to download a copy of the graphic. The default images provided by Jira Align will download as a .svg vector graphics file. Any images you’ve uploaded for use as a badge will download in their original format: .gif, .jpeg/.jpg, .png, or .bmp.
Removal of invalid data from tables
As previously reported in hotfix 10.110.3.12, we resolved an issue where the Jira Software connector was causing some team member database tables to fill with null values. As part of the deployment of version 10.111.0, we ran a script that deleted these invalid entries from Jira Align instances.
Work Tree: New setting to include misaligned child items in calculation dials
We’ve added a new setting to the Work Tree page to better account for child work items that aren’t planned for the same PI specified in the Configuration bar. Switch on the Include all contributing work option inside of the Extra Configs menu of the page in order to include child items in story progress bars and the calculation dials at the top of the page.
This setting is not available when the Narrow to Program and Program Increment setting is switched on.
Improvement to feature Details panels - Program Increment field
To create a more consistent and usable experience when working with a long list of options, we’ve updated the Program Increments field inside of feature Details panels. The new experience allows you to search for a specific option instead of scrolling through a long alphabetical list.
Associate read-only work items with objectives
We’ve updated the abilities that users with read-only role permissions have when associating objectives with other work items inside of Details panels.
From an objective’s Details panel, users with read-only permissions for that level of objective will be able to associate an existing work item and create new work items, as long as they have add and save permissions enabled for that work item. If the user has read-only permissions for the work item, they will only be able to associate existing work items with the objective.
From a work item’s Details panel, a user with read-only permissions for that work item will be able to associate an existing objective and create new objectives, as long as they have add and save permissions enabled for that level of objective. If the user has read-only permissions for the objective, they will only be able to associate existing objectives with the work item.
Selections made in the Manage Objective Mappings settings menu still apply to these abilities.
Objectives supported in searches
The search menu found at the top-right of Jira Align pages now returns search results for objectives! You can search for objectives by ID and title. You can also filter search results by selecting Objectives from the All Work Items dropdown menu found at the top of the search results window.
The list of defect fixes will be updated to reflect changes in weekly maintenance releases. You can see the contents of individual maintenance releases in the Supplemental Release Notes section.
