Atlassian Cloud changes Oct 31 to Nov 7, 2022


Recommended Posts

Atlassian Cloud

Your cloud-hosted products are supported by the Atlassian Cloud platform. This section usually includes changes related to multiple Atlassian Cloud products, site administration, and user management.

Take control of your domain’s user accounts

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

We’re giving you more flexibility to manage user accounts for your domains. You’ll be able to control how and what specific user accounts you’d like to manage.

When you verify your domain, you can:

  • Choose how to claim new users for a domain — automatically or manually
  • Choose to claim all users or some new users for a domain

Learn how you currently verify a domain

Find content across multiple Atlassian products

:RollingOut:

Search across the products you have access to in Atlas (currently in beta), Confluence, Jira Work Management, and Trello.

To search across products:

  1. Open search in Atlas (beta), Confluence, Jira Work Management, or Trello.
  2. Select the tab of the other product you'd like to search within.

Control your workflow more easily by connecting one or more identity providers

:RollingOut:

We’re giving you the ability to manage a variety of business and information security requirements. You’ll now have the flexibility to connect more than one identity provider to your Atlassian organization. We also simplified the workflow for managing user authentication and provisioning. You can now do it from one place.

You now have two types of directories for managing users in your organization: a local directory and an identity provider directory. The key changes are:

  • We moved user login and sync to the new Identity providers screen
  • You have two authentication policies by default: one for your local directory and one for your identity provider
  • We automatically associate your domain’s user accounts with a linked directory.

Learn more about identity providers

To see your identity provider directory, go to admin.atlassian.com > Security > Identity providers.

G Suite becomes Google Workspace

:ComingSoon:

We’re changing G Suite in your organization administration by:
Renaming G Suite to Google Workspace in the product and support documents, 
Moving G Suite to the new Identity providers screen,
And giving you two authentication policies out-of-the-box: one for your local directory and one for your identity provider.

Learn more about Google Workspace

Link Bitbucket workspaces to your organization

:RollingOut:

You can link Bitbucket workspaces to your organization using admin.atlassian.com.

After you link Bitbucket workspaces, you can view them in the organization’s products list and you can access their audit logs.

To link a Bitbucket workspace to your organization:

  1. Go to admin.atlassian.com. Select your organization if you have more than one.
  2. Select Products > … > Link products.
  3. From the Select products screen, select the Bitbucket workspace you want to link.
  4. Review and confirm the workspace to be linked.

 

Jira platform

Changes in this section usually apply to all Jira products. We'll tell you in the change description if something is only for a specific Jira product.

Advanced Roadmaps - Improvements to the Exclusion rule modal

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

Creating an exclusion rules using releases in Advanced Roadmaps just got easier.

We've made some improvements to the exclusion rule modal, namely when including or excluding releases. You can now sort releases by their status (Released or Unreleased), along with a few other small usability changes.

Learn more about exclusion rules, including how to create them.

Disable bulk team field update for subtasks

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

Subtasks inherit the team field value of the parent issue. This fix prevents users from doing bulk team field updates in subtasks.

New request type configuration experience

:RollingOut:

Configure your request forms with ease, using a fresh drag and drop experience!

Learn how to configure your request types.

Search for all custom fields in Jira from the issue layout

:RollingOut:

Add and reuse fields from other issue types and projects without navigating to Jira settings. Search for fields from the issue layout, or find those that were recently created or are used in other issue types and projects under Suggested fields.

Issue view: Maximum number of displayed child issues increased to 500

:RollingOut:

We heard feedback that some of you needed to display more than 100 child issues on an issue. That's why we're increasing the maximum number of child issues you can see from an issue to 500. You can still have more than 500 child issues, but you'll have to view them in search.

Fallback for non-DMARC custom domain emails

:RollingOut:

We’re rolling out improvements to the way Jira Cloud sends notification emails from custom domains. You'll be able to configure email addresses with your own domain to send Jira notifications with a valid DKIM signature, which complies with Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC) security checks. Existing custom domain emails won’t be impacted by this change.

If you would like to use DMARC-compliant custom domains to send notifications, you’ll need to configure two components:

  • Atlassian admin: The configuration of custom domains and email addresses for your Jira Cloud site. Learn more
  • Project settings: The configuration of sender email addresses for the project. Learn more

Add status while creating an issue

:RollingOut:

You can now select the status of an issue while you're creating it. For example, you could make an issue with the "in progress" status.

When selecting the status of an issue while creating it, you'll only be able to select statuses that don't have screens, actions, rules, validations or conditions in your workflow.

Allow all licensed users to view and edit the contents of an Insight custom field

:RollingOut:

We've simplified the permissions for the Insight custom field so that you can leverage it across Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Jira Work Management, and your portals.

Portal users already have temporary "Object Schema User" roles so they can view and select objects in the Insight custom field when they appear in the portal. Now, Jira Software, JSM, and JSW users will also have temporary "Object Schema User" roles that allow them to view and edit the contents of an Insight custom field within issues where they already have existing edit permissions.

These roles will not count towards the total number of users on your license.

Preview smart links by hovering over them

:RollingOut:

You no longer need to open another tab to see what’s behind a smart link! Now preview smart links, including links to other issues or Confluence pages, by just hovering over them. To try it out, go to an issue with a smart link and hover over it.

Search for an exact phrase with JQL

:RollingOut:

Advanced search with JQL is being updated to provide more accurate results. For example, if you enter  summary ~ "\"full screen\"" as a JQL query, the search results will only include issues where the summary contains the exact phrase "full screen". This is an improvement on current behavior, where search results can include the words in a different order and with other words between them.

The feature will start rolling out in October. If you’re using saved filters with exact search syntax, this may affect search results. If you don’t want search results to be affected, update your filters after this change rolls out.

Confluence automatically provided for free to new Jira Software accounts

:RollingOut:

76% of Jira Software customers said they shipped projects faster after adding Confluence so we’re giving new Jira Software instances Confluence for free, automatically.

Admins will learn about Confluence being added during their first week via some user interface changes and then have the option to add people from their team to try it out. It’s free for up to 10 people and can be removed at any time.

Learn about how Confluence and Jira Software work together

Advanced Roadmaps - Hierarchy changes show in audit logs

:RollingOut:

Configuration changes in Advanced Roadmaps now show in your Jira audit log, including:

  • when a plan created or deleted
  • when scheduling configurations are changed
  • when issue sources are added or removed, and;
  • when an exclusion rule is changed

Learn more about auditing activities within Jira Software Cloud.

Full-width preview of embedded smart links

:RollingOut:

We’re giving you more options to interact with smart links without leaving Jira. With this update, preview links will now open in full-width mode, reducing the need to open a new tab or window.

To preview embedded smart links in full-width mode:

  1. Hover over a smart link and select Preview.
  2. The preview will display in full-width mode.

System dashboards will now be named default dashboards

:RollingOut:

We’re aligning our terminology for default dashboards. Some Jira sites had theirs named ‘System dashboard’; others had theirs named ‘Default dashboard’. To make sure we’re using the same terminology for everyone, we’ll be calling the dashboard that comes with every Jira site ‘Default dashboard’ from now on.

Learn more about configuring default dashboards.

Automation: Secure headers for outgoing web requests

:RollingOut:

You can now hide header values that are sent in outgoing web requests in Jira automation. To do this, select the Hidden checkbox when configuring the Send web request action.

  1. Create or edit an automation rule.
  2. Select the Send web request action.
  3. When configuring headers, select the Hidden checkbox.

Learn more about the Send web request action.

No more accidentally deleting dashboards

:RollingOut:

We’ve removed manually deleting dashboards permanently so you don’t have to worry about accidentally deleting your data. You can still trash dashboards and restore them within 60 days before they’re automatically deleted. Learn more about trashing dashboards.

Disable bulk editing of Team field for subtasks

:RollingOut:

We are disabling the bulk editing of Team field for subtasks. If any subtask is selected in a bulk edit operation, the Team field will appear under 'Unavailable Actions'. This change prevents users from editing the Team field as we work on subtasks inheriting the team of the parent issue by default.

Recommending JWM templates to existing users productionisation rollout

:RollingOut:

When someone from a non-software team (Marketing, IT, Finance, etc) creates a project in any Jira product, we’ll recommend templates from Jira Work Management if they’re more relevant and useful than Jira Software templates.

All project templates will be visible for all users, but people will see different, default template recommendations based on the team they tell us they belong to during their onboarding.

A Jira Work Management is included in your Jira Software account, so access to the templates is free.

See Jira Work Management templates

Custom field for marketplace apps renamed to Legacy Asset

:RollingOut:

As we announced a few months ago, Insight in Jira Service Management will soon be renamed to Assets (see https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Service-Management-articles/Coming-Soon-Insight-Changing-to-Assets/ba-p/2068056 ). This also requires that the existing ‘Assets' custom field in Jira Service Management to also be renamed.

What's changing:

  • Custom field label: Assets will be replaced with Legacy Assets
  • Custom field descriptor: Link assets to an issue will be replaced with Link assets that have been made available via marketplace apps and the legacy assets platform.
  • Nothing else - the Assets platform will continue to function as it does currently.

For more information, please see the Developer Community post.

 

Jira Software

Roadmap - Filter by parent level on your roadmap

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

Focus on one specific task on your roadmap! In the filters section of your roadmap, you'll now see a menu titled Epic (or whatever you've named parent-level issues in your project). This lets you show or hide issues based on their parent issue.

Roadmaps - Inline issue create for story level issues

:NewThisWeek:

Now when you want to insert child issues into your roadmap view, you won't need to reposition them after they're created.

This new update allows you to create and then insert a child issue. To use it, hover on the edge of the two issues between which you'd like to create a new one, then select the + that appears. Once you've created your issue, it'll automatically be inserted at that ranking.

Move data between sites with cloud-to-cloud migration

:RollingOut:

We're introducing cloud-to-cloud migration to make it easier for you to move users and projects from one cloud site to another. Cloud-to-cloud migration can help you combine data between two or more cloud sites, split a cloud site into multiple cloud sites, duplicate a cloud site, or move specific projects from one cloud site to another.

Org and site admins can access this feature by logging in to the cloud site you want to move your users and projects from, then going to Settings > System > Migrate cloud site.

Team-managed projects: Custom filters for your board and backlog

:RollingOut:

We’ve introduced custom filters to help you find issues in a busy board and backlog. Powered by Jira Query Language (JQL), project admins can now create saved and reusable search terms to quickly find relevant issues.

Learn more about custom filters in team-managed projects

To get started with custom filters:

1. From your team-managed project, go to Project settings > Board > Custom filters.
2. Create your first custom filter using JQL. If this is your first time using JQL, select ? in the top navigation bar to learn the basics.

Team-managed projects: Mark an issue’s most important details

:RollingOut:

Add required fields to ensure that newly created issues contain all the details you need.

  1. From your team-managed project, go to Project settings > Issue types, then select the issue type you want to edit.
  2. Select the Required checkbox for any fields you want to make mandatory.
  3. Select Save changes to update the issue type.

Once saved, new issues of that type can’t be created unless the required field is filled out.

Roadmaps - Use Quick Filters on your company-managed roadmap

:RollingOut:

Your quick filters from your board can now be used in your company-managed project roadmap!

Quick filters don't remove issues from your project, but instead only change your view. This allows you to focus on issues of a specific fix version, those assigned to one person, or anything else you can dream up (and write a JQL query for).

Learn more about quick filters, including how to create them.

Roadmaps - Select and reschedule multiple issues at once

:RollingOut:

From your Roadmap view, you can now select multiple issues at once and reschedule them in one clean motion. Use the command button then select as many issues as you please (as you would when selecting multiple files on your computer). With all of the issues you want selected, drag to reschedule them all at once. When you select a parent issue, all of the child issues are selected, too.

More options to create custom release notes

:RollingOut:

We've improved the release notes experience in Jira so it's now easier to create and edit better-looking release notes for your versions. With new formatting options, you can select what issue fields you want to display in your release notes, as well as decide where you want them to live - in your version or your team's Confluence space.

Here's how to try it out:

  1. Go to your project and select Releases from the project menu. 
  2. Select the Version you want to generate release notes for.
  3. Select Release notes.
  4. Follow the prompts to create your release notes either in your version or on a Confluence page.

Learn more about creating release notes

Set your own branch name format when you create branches from Jira using the git command

:RollingOut:

If you use the git branch command to create branches via the Jira issue view, you can now update your default branch name format. This means you can set your preferred branch name style, then create and checkout branches by copying the git command from your Jira issues.

To update your branch name format:

  1. Navigate to a Jira issue.
  2. In the Development panel, select Create branch.
  3. Select the settings icon next to GIT CREATE & CHECKOUT A NEW BRANCH.
  4. Select the fields you want to add to your new branch name format. You must include the issue key to link your branch and build info to Jira.
  5. Select Save.

Company-managed projects: Agile insight reports now support epic renaming

:RollingOut:

When you rename the default level one issue (epic) to something else, the change will be visible in your insights reports. All the places where "epic" is used will now be replaced by the name you've renamed it to.

Select Reports on the side panel to see the change appear in all relevant places.

Integrate feature flags with your Jira issues via the Releases hub

:RollingOut:

We’ve updated the Releases hub with new options to help you integrate feature flags with your Jira issues so you can monitor the rollout of changes in your project.

If you haven’t yet connected a feature flag tool to your Jira project, we’ll show you an installation guide with step-by-step instructions for connecting a feature flag tool and linking flags to your Jira issues.

If you’ve already installed a feature flag tool, you’ll be able to select from the following options:

• Create a new flag in your connected tool

• Connect an existing flag from your connected tool

• Install another tool

To view the new options:

  1. Select Releases in your project menu, then select a version.
  2. Scroll down to the Issues table.
  3. Hover over an issue row.
  4. Select the flag icon at the end of the row.

 

Jira Service Management

Jira Service Desk is now Jira Service Management! We’re in the process of rolling out some exciting new features for all users. Learn more about these new features.

New template categories for Jira Service Management templates

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

When creating a new service project, you need to select a template from the project template selection screen. The categories on the left filter the available templates to help you find the one that's best suited for your team. You'll now see three new template categories for Jira Service Management templates: Analytics, Facilities, and IT.

New marketing template for team-managed projects

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

The Marketing service management template provides teams with a central place to collect, prioritize, and assign incoming marketing requests, and streamline collaboration with stakeholders, producers, and approvers. Customized request types and form templates collect the information you need to get the job done, and workflows help you stay on top of progress.

New finance template for team-managed projects

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

The Finance service management template provides teams with a central place to field queries, and triage and manage budget, spend, and other finance requests.

New analytics template for team-managed projects

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

The Analytics service management template provides teams with a central place to capture, triage, and manage analytics and data requests. Collect all the details you need using tailored request types and form templates, so your team can focus on providing insights that guide business decisions.

Simplified object schema configuration and streamlined importing

:RollingOut:

Configuring an object schema is now streamlined and simplified. When configuring an object schema, you can create new reference types and statuses by selecting Create a reference or Create a status.

We’ve also simplified how imports are created. To create a new import, select Create import, select your import type, and then select Create. Object types and attributes will be automatically created for you.

On the other hand, if you’d like to create object types and attributes manually, you can turn off Automatically create object types and attributes and map your object types and attributes yourself.

Finally, Process Results has been moved into the Imports tab, where you can see the history of your completed imports by selecting View history.

Learn more about importing objects into Jira Service Management.

Resend invitations to customers

:RollingOut:

It's now much easier to resend invitations to your customers. Agents can now find a Resend invite button next to customer profiles on the Customers page. This button will resend an email invitation for a customer account.

Forms: Get the information you need, when you need it

:RollingOut:

Forms use conditional logic to dynamically show or hide fields, and can include headings, tables, and rich formatting. Use forms in your portal to gather information when a request is raised, or 
add forms to existing issues to gather new information as it’s needed.

We're rolling out forms slowly, so keep an eye out under Project settings (or Service project settings in team-managed projects) for Forms in the navigation on the left.

Learn more about forms in Jira Service Management.

Introducing Microsoft Teams for incident collaboration

:RollingOut:

Collaborate with your team by creating chats and meetings in Microsoft Teams directly from an incident in Jira Service Management. To create a chat or meeting, go to an incident and select the Create chat or meeting button next to the Microsoft Teams field in the Details section.

After creating a chat or meeting, you can:

  • invite responders to join your chat and meeting
  • view all incident details in the chat and meeting
  • update the incident priority, assign the incident to yourself, add an internal note, and send a reply to the customer from Microsoft Teams.

Learn how to connect Microsoft Teams to your service project.

Jira Service Management: New editor in customer notification templates

:RollingOut:

To provide a consistent editing experience with our other products like Jira Software and Confluence, we've updated the text editor in customer notification templates with a cleaner look, markdown support, and industry-standard keyboard shortcuts. The editor converts things like links, code, and markdown on-the-fly, so you can paste in your content and let the editor do the work. Learn more about editing the content of customer notifications.

Introducing Zoom for incident collaboration

:RollingOut:

Collaborate efficiently with your team on incidents by creating Zoom meetings directly from Jira Service Management.

By connecting your project with Zoom, your team can:

  • create Zoom meetings right from the incident issue view
  • invite responders to join your meeting

Connect your site to Zoom and resolve incidents faster. Learn how to connect Zoom to your service project.

See request type fields while creating an issue

:RollingOut:

In company-managed service projects, after selecting Create and selecting a request type you'll now see request type fields instead of all available fields. This ensures that agents have the right information they need to complete their tasks.

We recommend selecting a request type for all of your issues (except tasks and sub-tasks). Request types allow issues to appear in the portal, use work categories, and access a range of other Jira Service Management features. Learn more about using request types in Jira Service Management.

Assets field (to connect with Marketplace apps) renamed to Legacy Assets

:RollingOut:

As we announced a few months ago, Insight in Jira Service Management will soon be renamed to Assets (see Coming Soon: Insight Changing to Assets ). This also requires that the existing "Assets" custom field used for connecting to some Marketplace apps in Jira Service Management also be renamed.

'Insight' is changing to 'Assets'

:RollingOut:

A few months ago we announced on Community that "Insight" in Jira Service Management would be changing to "Assets" - and now it's happening!

So what's changed? The short answer: not too much. The full functionality of asset and configuration management from Insight remains the same.

The biggest difference you’ll notice is the word "Assets" appearing in the top navigation where "Insight" used to reside. There are a handful of other related changes that also deserve a mention:

IQL: Insight Query Language (IQL) will change its name to Asset Query Language (AQL). The functionality will remain the same and will be backwards compatible.

APIs: No changes. People can continue to use them the way they do today. We will support both /Insight and /Assets.

Apps: All existing Atlassian Insight Marketplace Apps will start referring to Assets.

New analytics template for company-managed projects

:RollingOut:

The Analytics service management template provides teams with a central place to capture, triage, and manage analytics and data requests. Collect all the details you need using tailored request types and form templates, so your team can focus on providing insights that guide business decisions.

New marketing template for company-managed projects

:RollingOut:

The Marketing service management template provides teams with a central place to collect, prioritize, and assign incoming marketing requests, and streamline collaboration with stakeholders, producers, and approvers. Customized request types and form templates collect the information you need to get the job done, and workflows help you stay on top of progress.

New finance template for company-managed projects

:RollingOut:

The Finance service management template provides teams with a central place to field queries, and triage and manage budget, spend, and other finance requests.

 

Jira Work Management

Group your work in the board view

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

You can now group the items in your board by certain attributes. Organize and visualize your work how you want to. For example, you can check high-priority tasks to see that nothing is blocked or see individual team members' workloads at a glance.

Stay in control of how you want to view your work. However you choose to group your board is visible to you only. You can group your work by:

  • Assignee
  • Status
  • Priority
  • Category

To search across products:

  1. Open search in Atlas (beta), Confluence, Jira Work Management, or Trello.
  2. Select the tab of the other product you'd like to search within.

View different issue type's workflows on your board

:RollingOut:

Currently, if your business project has multiple issue types with different workflows, the board wouldn't work properly and would display an error. With this change, you can now easily select which workflow to view on your board.

To view a particular issue type’s workflow, you can:

  1. Select ... More at the top right of the board view
  2. Select Workflows
  3. Choose which issue type’s workflow you’d like to view.

Note: You can only view statuses and transitions associated with the selected workflow on the board. Learn more about multiple workflows on your board.

We've made navigating Jira Work Management easier

:RollingOut:

You can now change views in your business project more contextually in the brand new project view navigation. The project sidebar will now be reserved for navigating between your business projects, and everything else will sit more contextually in the project you're viewing.

To access project settings and change views, navigate to the project view navigation (horizontal navigation above your project’s view).[ Learn more about changing views in your business project|https://support.atlassian.com/jira-work-management/docs/work-in-jira-work-management-projects/#Change-views-in-your-project].

 

Jira Product Discovery

Preview smart links by hovering over them

:RollingOut:

You no longer need to open another tab to see what’s behind a smart link! Now preview smart links, including links to other issues or Confluence pages, by just hovering over them. To try it out, go to an issue with a smart link and hover over it.

 

Confluence

Discover which template was used to create a page

:RollingOut: :NewThisWeek:

  2. Hover over the "with a template" part of the byline to see the template name and a description
  3. Select View to open the template in the template browser, then Use template to create a page with that template

See when page or blog post changes were last saved as you edit

As you are editing your pages and blogs in Confluence, you'll get real-time updates at the top right of the toolbar that let you know when the content was saved. Confluence is always saving the work you do, so that you don't have to publish the page to make sure your work is safe.

If there is more than one person editing at the same time, you'll see when the content was saved last whether you or a collaborator made the changes that were saved.

New sharing and access experience for pages

:RollingOut:

Unsure who has (or will have) access to your page? Do you and the people you collaborate with keep running into unexpected access restricted screens?

We’ve unified the sharing and access experiences for pages into a single flow so you don't have to worry about sharing a page with someone and remembering to grant them access.

We've also added more visibility into who can access pages so that it's easier to understand and troubleshoot.

With this new experience, you’ll feel more confident and in control of your content, which will make it much easier to share and collaborate on Confluence pages.

Learn more about the new sharing and access experience for pages.

Follow from a profile card

:RollingOut:

Your Following feed on Home keeps you informed about what others are up to.

Easily follow someone directly from their profile card to start seeing their activity in your feed.

At the bottom of a page or blog post, choose an existing reaction, or select the "Add a reaction" icon to add your own. You can also react from the activity feed.

Be more expressive with panels

:RollingOut:

In addition to the five preset panel options, you can customize panels by choosing one of the 20 background colors available.

Panels can have emojis, or you can remove the emoji to meet the needs of your content. The emojis available to you are the same set that you already use in Confluence; this includes custom emojis you and your teammates added.

1. Add a panel to a page by typing /custom panel or by selecting Custom panel from the insert menu.

2. Use the floating toolbar to choose a background color and pick an emoji if you want one.

Find content across multiple Atlassian products

Automatically get a personal space

:RollingOut:

A personal space in Confluence is a place of your own to jot down new ideas, introduce yourself to your team, keep track of tasks, store important items or files, polish content before sharing with others, and more.

You can choose to leave the space open for others to visit and collaborate, or you can restrict the pages so that no one else can see them.

If you don't already have a personal space, one will be created for you after you've logged in and viewed a page. There are three ways to get to your personal space:

  • Select Spaces in the global navigation bar. Your personal space is automatically starred for easy access.
  • Select your profile icon at the top right of the global navigation bar and select Personal Space.
  • Select Home in the global navigation bar. All starred spaces are shown on the right.

Learn more about personal spaces

Paste urls as plain text in the editor

:RollingOut:

You can now use Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + v when pasting content to stop links from becoming Smart Links when using the editor.

Use this command to paste copy or links to keep urls in their original format. You can also use Cmd/Ctrl + z to change a link back to its original url if it has already converted to a Smart Link.

Sort resolved comments by recency

:RollingOut:

You can now sort resolved inline comments by newest and oldest order. By default comments will be sorted newest first.

Start editing where you are

:RollingOut:

When viewing a Confluence page, you can jump into editing anywhere on the page using a shortcut key or the edit icon. Your focus when editing stays where you were when viewing.

  1. Find a page you want to modify.
  2. Scroll to where you want to make changes.
  3. Press e or select the pencil icon to edit the content.

Create a new team on behalf of others

:RollingOut:

Users who create a new team have the option to remove themselves as a member. Previously, any user who creates a new team becomes a member by default.

To create a new team and remove yourself as a member:

  1. Select People from the top menu.
  2. Select Start a team.
  3. Under Invite people to your team, select X beside your name.

Indent and outdent content easier from the toolbar

You can use the buttons to indent the following content:

  • Top-level paragraphs and headings
  • Bullet lists
  • Numbered lists
  • Task lists

Learn more about indenting content in Confluence Cloud

 

Bitbucket

Link Bitbucket workspaces to your organization

After you link Bitbucket workspaces, you can view them in the organization’s products list and you can access their audit logs.

To link a Bitbucket workspace to your organization:

  1. Go to admin.atlassian.com. Select your organization if you have more than one.
  2. Select Products > … > Link products.
  3. From the Select products screen, select the Bitbucket workspace you want to link.

Updated repository size limits & automatic garbage collection

:RollingOut:

When a commit that is larger than the space remaining on the repository is pushed, it will reject further commits. To fix this, you need to push a reset to undo the last push, as explained in Reduce repository size.

This roll-out causes the ‘undo’ push to trigger an automatic garbage collection (GC) to prune the dangling commits and bring the repository below the size limit again. This allows users to push commits again without having to raise a request to our Support team and wait for us to run GC. We are progressively rolling out these changes over the next 2 weeks which means that not all users will have this functionality until after November 10.

Displaying build status on pull request commits

With this latest update, you can now see the build status next to each commit row on the pull request view.

Pipelines: Force stop parallel steps when a step fails (fast fail)

Bitbucket Pipelines has added a new configuration setting (fast-fail) to stop parallel steps when a step in the parallel group fails. This functionality is disabled by default. For information on using the new fast-fail setting, visit Configure bitbucket-pipelines.yml — fast-fail.

Assign a lifecycle stage to components

:NewThisWeek:

You can now assign a lifecycle stage to your components. A lifecycle is a series of stages a component goes through during its lifetime. Knowing the component's lifecycle stage gives you more confidence to make informed decisions about utilizing the component. You can assign, update, and view a component's lifecycle stage on its Overview page.

To assign a lifecycle stage to a component, go to its Overview page, select + Lifecycle stage, and choose the stage your component is in.
