My name is Ahmud and I’m a Product Manager in the Jira Cloud Issue Experience team. We are launching the Issue Context module as an Early Access Program (“EAP”) to collect your feedback and ensure that this functionality is the best that it can be.
The Issue Context Module is moving Forge and Connect ecosystem apps from behind the glance view into their own separate group that individual users can expand/collapse. This change will make it easier for users to find and update fields in the new issue view.
What do I need to do?
We will be providing a new extension point,the jira:issueContext module, to replace our current glance API for Forge and Connect . You will need to replace the jiraIssueGlances or jira:issueGlance module definition in the app descriptor with jira:issueContextfor Connect and Forge apps.
Additional reference documentation is available to EAP participants.
How to sign up for the EAP
