Hi, Developer Community! The first EAP for Jira 9.9 Data Center and Server is ready for testing.
Integrate Jira Software with Microsoft Graph API
Jira Software incoming mail servers can now integrate with Microsoft Graph API. The Microsoft Graph API protocol ensures robust data security in your Jira instance and protects it from unauthorized access, corruption, and breaches.
Configure empty custom fields to always appear on issues
Working with custom fields becomes easier and more efficient as we introduce the Empty custom field configuration. You no longer need to edit the issue or navigate to the issue details view each time you need to fill in an empty custom field — such fields can now be visible in the issue view.
Use the new
importSettings field to manage the Developers project role
The Jira Importer Plugin no longer automatically creates and assigns the Developers project role to all project leads and assignees in the imported file by default. You need to turn it on with the new
importSettings field in the config file
Get a great speed-up in email notification performance
A Jira instance can now send 30,000 email notifications per minute. The previous capacity was 4,000 emails per minute.
Check more accessibility fixes for low-vision and keyboard-only users in Jira Service Management
The highlights for this release include improved roles, attributes, labels, and navigation in Assets objects and search. Check out the full list of fixed issues
Share requests with Jira groups to enhance visibility in your Jira Service Management instance
Scale up the service desk and customer management in your instance by enabling internal customers (employees) to share requests with other members of the Jira groups they’re assigned to without additional permissions.
Run imports on dedicated nodes and track the progress of the operations in Jira Service Management
You can run manual imports on the same nodes that you configure for scheduled imports. A request for a manual import operation will send a cluster message to the other nodes, so only a dedicated node will handle the import. The progression of imports and other operations will be shared across all nodes. You’ll be able to check it in the Process results tab on any node.
Test comments on approvals in Jira Service Management for Mobile
You can now leave comments when approving or declining requests in Jira Service Management for Mobile, just like in the web version of the application.
