Hi Cloud app developers!
We are in the process of building a new sidebar architecture that will help with Jira’s performance, scalability and overall usability. As part of this new architecture, we’re working on restructuring how some of the URLs from the sidebar links look and behave in Jira Cloud. We have also found some locations that are being utilized by a small number of Cloud apps and we would like to deprecate some of these, but before we do we want to better understand how these are used.
Our proposed plan
Based on our investigation, we are proposing the following changes and would like to get your feedback on this before moving forward:
Changes to URLs
Deprecation of Global Settings - System (a)
a) Global Settings - System (<3% of apps use this location):
- Location =
- Module =
- Documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/modules/admin-page/
b) Global Settings - Apps
- Location =
- Module = webSections | webItems
- Documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/administration-ui-locations/
If your Cloud app currently uses the above Global Settings System location (a), can you give us more detail on why you use this and not the Global Settings Apps location (b)? For the end-user, we believe that #2 provides the same utility as #1.
Feel free to comment below on these proposed changes or tell us more about how you’re using these various locations. We want to better understand the use cases so we can make a much more informed approach to how we tackle this. Thanks so much for your time!
