Hi developer community,
Thank you to everyone who has submitted responses so far for the new Privacy & Security tab. We’re pleased to see over 700 apps with complete Privacy & Security tab information available to help prospective cloud customers and migrating customers more easily evaluate apps.
We have two important updates to share this week, as our 100% rollout milestone is rapidly approaching.
As the Privacy & Security tab is a space to reflect the most important app privacy and security information for customers, it will be periodically updated and improved. Of course, as a new feature in particular, we’re keen to respond to feedback quickly.
As such, this week we’re rolling out a few improvements to the questionnaire and tab. None of these changes require immediate action, and your live Privacy & Security tab responses will not be impacted.
Updates to the questionnaire are detailed below:
We received feedback that some questions were worded in a way that was unclear or inaccurate. We also got some questions about where information was sourced from. To address some of this feedback, we’re making the following adjustments:
We also learned from you that our options for some of the questions were too restrictive or didn’t give you enough flexibility to explain your app’s trust posture.
Here are two adjustments to provide you with more / better options and a better experience:
Again, none of these changes require immediate action, and your live Privacy & Security tab responses will not be impacted. However, be aware that if and when you return to update your app’s Privacy & Security tab or to the web form, you may notice some clarified wording. Also, if you’d like to adjust your responses based on any of these changes, you are welcome and encouraged to do so at your earliest convenience.
Next week, 100% of visitors to the Atlassian web Marketplace will be able to see the Privacy & Security tab on cloud app listings. We will announce the new experience to customers in the Atlassian Community in the coming weeks.
If you haven’t yet, please use the following resources to fill out your Privacy & Security tab information:
- the New Privacy & Security tab API
- instructions to submit your responses
- frequently asked questions (Partner Portal only - also available publicly here)
See the full timeline below:
As we mentioned in a previous update on the Privacy & Security tab, we will not make any changes to previously submitted responses without your permission, so please continue submitting your responses and providing feedback. With the 100% rollout coming soon, having information filled out will help prospective customers better understand how your app fits their needs.
In the event of future changes, we will provide an announcement similar to this one (outlining the change and action items) here in the Developer Community, and in the Marketplace change log.
After the initial release period, where we expect to see the most changes, we plan to move toward more regular updates with longer lead times so you can prepare for changes. However, during this initial launch period we may be moving a bit faster to ensure you have what you need to put your best foot forward.
And of course, feel free to add questions here on this post.
