Jira 8.22 EAP 02 released

Thanks for your feedback on Jira 8.22 EAP 01. Please welcome the next EAP that brings you as close as you can get to the official Jira 8.22 release.


  • Popper replaces Tipsy in AUI 9.3.5
    We’ve upgraded AUI to version 9.3.5, which replaces the Tipsy tooltip generation library with Popper.
  • Configure Jira as an OAuth 2.0 provider
    To complete our OAuth 2.0 functionality, we’ve now added a way to configure Jira as an OAuth 2.0 provider, allowing you to exchange data with external applications in both directions – either by giving external applications access to Jira data or letting Jira request data from these applications.
  • Web Resource Management 5.0
    Web Resource Management (WRM) is a tool that takes care of serving static assets for the whole Jira, including plugins. With the upgraded version we can provide better page loading performance.
  • XStream 1.4.17 vulnerability mitigation
    We’ve upgraded com.thoughtworks.xstream to version 1.4.18. XStream is a library used for serialization/deserialization of Java objects to/from XML. This update limits the range of types that can be serialized/deserialized to increase security.
  • Multiple email channels (Data Center)
    You can now configure as many dedicated email channels as you need for better communication with customers. Their emails will turn into requests or comments, personalizing and speeding up the process.
  • SLA configuration interface (Data Center)
    We’re introducing a brand new SLA configuration interface so that all settings related to SLAs live in the same space for easier management and monitoring.
  • Auto-populated request fields (Data Center)
    Many of our users aren’t linking a Confluence knowledge base to their service projects and find the default search bar not needed or even confusing. That’s why we’ve now added an option to disable the search bar.

Hi @TomaszPrus

I have noticed a minor loss of functionality in the Agile Boards.

You can configure the card layout of a board to add custom fields on it. We implement a new custom field type, and Jira will render the column view (HTML) of our field on the card.

The popup also contains the column view HTML of our custom field. It was previously using a data-tooltip="<...>" Tipsy tag:


Now it’s a regular HTML title="<...>" tag (doesn’t seem to be replaced by Popper):

If I use the following Javascript on my page AJS.$('.ghx-extra-field').tooltip({html: true}), Popper will then show the tooltips as before.

Good morning! Thank you for this finding. We were able to reproduce this bug and we will be working on a fix in the next weeks


Atlassian, just want to state that @linklefebvre took the time to try the EAP and reported a bug, that can easily by fixed before the release. It was ignored and only acknowledge after the release of 8.22, 7 days later.

If you are asking for help evaluating EAP versions and ignore the results, then what’s the purpose?
