Effective September 30, 2023, this announcement category will no longer be used to announce changes and will be converted to read-only. All changes will be posted in the Developer changelog . Please ensure you subscribe to updates from the Developer changelog to ensure you stay informed of changes. To help prevent our partners from missing critical updates to Developer changelog in the event you aren’t subscribed or miss an update, we are also featuring high-impact changes across Developer changelog within the monthly Marketplace Partner Skim blog on Partner Portal within the Product and Platform changes section.”
This is part of Atlassian’s ongoing efforts to improve the consistency of our communications with developers and partners and restore the Developer Community site to its primary purpose as a discussion and support forum.Using the Developer changelog, you’ll have the ability to:
Filter the types of notices at a more granular level
Setup one or more custom feeds across all changelog components vs. subscribing category by category
Although we’re shifting where these announcements are posted, we encourage you to continue asking questions and initiate discussions here on the Developer Community site as you do for all topics.
Here are a few tips and next steps to help ease the transition:
Action: Setup (or update) your subscription feed to the Developer changelog to include the components you need
On September 30, 2023 Atlassian will convert the announcement category to “read-only” allowing users to read historical announcements and no future announcements will be possible.
Hey @AsiaLewis, after “shutting down” the second alternative this year (first one being the Confluence Release Notes page) to be notified about new Confluence releases, the new method you commend your customers to use is not working as of now.
I understand this is to centralize communication channels and in the long term improve information flow. But when announcing such changes, the presented alternatives should work at the time of writing about it.
Should every customer now check the developer changelog everyday to see if there is a Confluence category? Subscribing to the whole changelog is also not reasonable as the important/wanted information probably gets lost in all the noise.
I would be grateful if you could bring this issue to the attention of the people responsible.
Hi @IDiALSupport , apologies for the delayed response. I acknowledge that we should have had the groups created at the time of the announcement. We will have an update on the API group for Confluence Data Center next week. Thanks for your patience.
