Jira 8.16 EAP 02 released

We’ve just released the second EAP for Jira 8.16 (Data Center & Server).


  • More insights into custom fields usage (Data Center)
    We’ve added two new columns that let you check the usage of custom fields to find the ones that aren’t used too often and can be deleted. The data shows how many issues are using your field and when was the last value update made. You can also delete custom fields in bulk.

  • Default values for issue descriptions (Data Center)
    You can now configure different contexts and default values for the Description field. We’ve also separated system fields from custom fields so you can manage them more easily.

  • Improvements to DVCS accounts
    We’ve redesigned the DVCS accounts page, improving the performance and experience of managing your accounts and repositories. We’ve also cleaned up screens used for integration and added search. For Data Center, you can also view audit log events for the most important actions.

Downloads & docs
For details, see Preparing for Jira 8.16. You can download the EAP from this page. If you’re using maven.atlassian.com, the version is 8.16.0-m0002.

Happy testing,
The Jira team

Hey Team,

How long does it normally take for a new EAP release to show up on docker hub? https://hub.docker.com/r/atlassian/jira-software

We use these as base images to do our add-on testing.
