Jira 8.17 EAP 01 released

We’ve just released the first EAP for Jira 8.17 (Data Center & Server).


  • Upgraded dependencies and libraries
    We’ve published a list of dependencies and libraries upgraded in this version. We’ll keep updating it as we release next EAPs.
  • Flexible Terminology for Jira
    We enabled admins to change generic Jira terms—sprints and epics. With this functionality, we unlock a possibility to keep consistent naming of sprints and epics between Jira and the Agile at Scale Frameworks, including SAFe and LeSS.
  • Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2019
    We’re welcoming a new database to the Jira family: SQL Server 2019.
  • Exporting custom fields for Data pipeline
    We’re improving Data pipeline in Jira, now allowing to export custom fields. You can make your app’s fields exportable, too.
  • Removing legacy web-resource loading feature flag (Jira Service Management)
    We’ve removed support for the sd.frontend.legacy.webresource.loading.customerportal feature flag, and it will no longer function as intended.
  • Removing obsolete JIM importers
    We’ve removed obsolete importers deprecated in Jira 8.4 from the codebase and they are no longer available. Jira 8.17 onwards will offer only CSV and JSON importers.
    Importers provided by 3rd party plugin vendors won’t be affected by this change.
