Bitbucket APIs Bitbucket APIs are rolled out to 100% of Bitbucket apps.

Jira APIs The Jira APIs are rolled out to 100% of Jira apps and the Jira SOAP APIs have been shut down.

Confluence APIs The new Confluence APIs are now rolled out to 100% of apps and customers. The SOAP APIs were temporarily shut down this week and then turned back on due to an issue with Jira. The new target date for shut down of our SOAP APIs is TBC.

On launch of Profile Visibility Controls

ACJIRA-1878 is in progress. The change will be addressed in Jira and Confluence search logic and require no separate API calls for apps.

The new target date is 2019-07-12T07:00:00Z, however Jira started testing the roll out with ~20 Atlassian Accounts last week.

The testing window has now closed. If you’ve already had an instance configured for testing, the configuration has temporarily been turned off.

As a reminder, profile visibility controls will allow users to control their profile settings through Atlassian Account. Certain fields like timezone and email address may be hidden by a user and not return in the user object. Additionally, the user may decide to show only public versions of their name or avatar.

All of these changes including the default settings are documented in these guidelines .

If your app requires use of email address to provide core functionality, please raise a request to access the email API. Should you use the email API without raising a request your app may be prevented from being installed .

Thank you

As always, thank you for working with us through these changes. Its been a large amount of work to complete in a short timeframe and we appreciate you helping us deliver a more trusted experience for customers.
