What’s changing and why?
We’re excited to announce our plans to release a faster Jira Dashboards experience to our customers in Jira Cloud. Our new experience modernises our tech stack, improving dashboard and gadget load times. Minor UX improvements have also been included to align with Atlassian’s design guidelines.
This announcement is relevant to you if you are a Jira Cloud developer who has released a Connect app which has Dashboard or Gadget-related functionality.
What do I need to do?
There are no changes to the API specification with this release, which means your Connect apps that have Dashboard or Gadget-related functionality should continue to work without an update. However, because some APIs have been rewritten, we would like to invite all interested vendors to early access testing, to ensure your apps continue to function as intended.

We will be in touch via e-mail with next steps. Please note that during the holiday period (24 December 2020 - 4 January 2021), it may take some time to add your instance(s) to our EAP. We will strive to respond to queries on a best-effort basis.
By when do I need to do this testing?
Our Early Access program to vendors will last until January 8, 2021, 11:59PM PDT. After this date, we plan to begin progressively rolling out the new experience to customers.
