Posts about Server

The first batch of changes for the upcoming platform release for Jira Software Server and Data Center is now available. Check out this post for more details.

The latest platform release for Jira Software Server and Data Center will be arriving later this year. We're excited to invest in significant upgrades to Jira, and to partner with the Atlassian ecosystem throughout this process. Check out this post for more details.

In the spirit of openness, we wanted to share our plans around upcoming breakingchanges across many Server Products.

We’ve just released the first EAP of Jira Server 7.11 as part of the Early Access Program (EAP) to let you know about the changes coming to Jira.

Build end-user awareness of your app, then show them how to use your app competently. This flow shows key steps in the journey vendors control and best practices at each step.

Learn to support admin users post-installation so they successfully announce your app to end users. This flow shows key steps in the journey vendors control and best practices at each step.

The onboarding journey covers two user types; the admin user trying to install and configure apps in the Atlassian suite of products and end users discovering and learning how to use the app. This flow shows key steps in the journey vendors control and best practices at each step.

The Portfolio for Jira team is proud to announce not just one but two APIs for our Server version.

We’re bringing a refreshed look and feel to many of our Server and Data Center products, and Jira is following the footsteps of Confluence and Bitbucket. Come read all about the changes to Jira Server.

The latest Confluence 6.9 EAP milestone is available now! EAP releases provide a snapshot of our work-in-progress and give you an opportunity to test and fix your add-ons before the final release.

Jira Service Desk Server team have made some breaking changes to their experimental API.

For Tip of the Week, we're taking suggestions from the community. This week's tip comes to us from plugin developer Daniel Wester of Wittified, who wants to remind us of how important it is to test changes to your Atlassian applications before deploying them to production.

Forewarned is forearmed, or so the saying goes. This means in the event of an incident, it's always best to have as much logging information available for diagnosis and remediation as is reasonable.

During my tour of duty providing support for our Tomcat and Java based behind-the-firewall apps, a common concern was the effect of updating Java or the JVM in the host after installing the product, and how it may affect a running production system. As some operating systems will auto-update system libraries such as Java with little notice, this risks loss of service from mission-critical apps in the unlikely case of a Java breaking change. Another common scenario that comes up is a case where a specific Java version is required for the app, which may not match the default version installed in the host. In this case, we'll want to specify a Java path to override any environment variable set at the host level to ensure consistent app behaviour. Finally, admins who wish to deploy multiple apps that require different versions of Java will be able to invoke them on the same host, each with the correct JVM.
