As of today, we’ve enabled ecosystem support for Jira Cloud developer domains enrolled in the alpha program. This means three key things:
You now have the new issue view enabled. You’ll see the new issue view UI when viewing an issue from the board, backlog in Jira Software projects (we will enable the full page view shortly). The new experience provides a per-user opt in/out, which you can find in your profile.
Marketplace apps are now supported and visible. Apps installed from the marketplace (that extend the Issue Detail UI) will appear in the new issue view. We’ve provided backwards compatibility, so you can see your app without changing anything in the descriptor. There’s more detail on this in the documentation.
The new Issue Content and Issue Glance modules are available to use. Update your descriptor by including these modules (don’t delete existing modules). The new issue view will know if the new modules exist in your descriptor, and will use the new module instead of the web panel with a left.context or right.context location.
Documentation & Design Guidelines
We’ve added documentation for the new issue to developer.atlassian.com. We’ll continue to update it as the alpha progresses, so let us know if there’s anything you could use more help or guidance with.
The main pages to start with are:
- Design Guidelines: Issue detail view
- New issue view UI locations
- New Module: Issue Content
- New Module: Issue Glance
- Design Guidelines: Using multiple glances in the issue view
We’re using this alpha program to get these updates into your hands as early as possible, so you have time to understand, provide feedback, and react to the changes.
In the spirit of building an open, collaborative community for our ecosystem partners, ask any questions or give your feedback on the developer community forums with a tag of “new-issue-view”.
The alpha will run for about 4 weeks, during which time we’ll answer questions, listen to your feedback, and add functionality and polish for the ‘1.0’ production release. Our goal is to start enabling ecosystem support for real customers in the first week of April (please note that this is subject to change). We recommend you update your marketplace apps before then to provide the best user experience for your customers.
