Atlassian developer changelog

This page contains announcements and updates for developers from various products, platforms, and programs across Atlassian. It includes filter controls to make it easier to only see updates relevant to you.

To ensure you don’t miss any updates, we also provide RSS feeds. These feeds will take on any filters you applied to the page, and are a standardized way of keeping up-to-date with Atlassian changes for developers. For example, in Slack with the RSS app installed, you can type /feed <FEED URL> in any channel, and RSS updates will appear in that channel as they are posted.

Announcement Enhancements to report visualization

Marketplace Platform

We have redesigned reports with a fresh look in response to the ongoing feedback and your concerns from the last rollout. The new design updates the UI to be more consistent with other Atlassian products while maintaining the familiarity of the existing workflows.

Not part of this redesign:

  • One piece of feedback we received during the first launch was to enable sorting in the Transactions/Licenses/Feedback Details tables. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate this request in the upcoming rollout. We’ll try to consider this in the next round of improvements.

  • For this release, the major emphasis is on optimizing the desktop experience while keeping the mobile platform’s functionalities similar.

Release timelines & roll-out plan

We are rolling out the new experience progressively on an opt-in basis. Partners will have the choice to enable the new experience via two in-product touch-points. They can either do this through a dismissible messaging card at the top of the reports page or through a fixed CTA located in the left navigation of the existing report.

The new experience will remain optional until June 30th, 2023. This will give partners the opportunity to use, compare, become accustomed to, and offer feedback on the new experience. Following the trial period, it will become the default experience for all partners.

More details

Here are some of the key highlights of the new design:

  1. Onboarding experience:
    We have designed an intuitive onboarding experience to help partners smoothly transition to the new experience. During the trial period, partners can switch back and forth between the two at any time.

  2. End-to-end interface:
    Partners now have access to the entire screen to view insights thanks to the end-to-end interface.

  3. Hierarchy in navigation and page structure:
    We’re retaining and enhancing the information hierarchy of the page layout.

  4. Retaining & enhancing filter usage & functionalities:
    a. In the first launch, we missed the multi-selection functionality of filters. We’re adding it in this release.
    b. We're moving “App & Hosting type” out of the “More filters” bucket. This is to make the most commonly used filters easier to find and use. We will update the popular filters in accordance with usage data in the future.

  5. Progressive disclosure of information:
    Partners can learn more about a specific license/transaction using an accordion (expand/collapse) interaction, similar to the current workflow. By clicking on “More details”, they can access all the relevant information about the license/transaction in a new tab.

  6. More clarity & structure to charts:
    The introduction of titles to charts boosts the clarity and readability of data. We’re also including legends at the bottom of the charts for visual reference. We’ve also made overall visual improvements to the charts.

  7. Accessibility-compliant colors for charts:
    We’re ensuring that the colors used in charts follow accessibility standards and provide at least a 3:1 contrast ratio against a light background.

  8. Improved Overview section:

    1. We’ve added “Total value” to the overview, for example, All sales/Evaluations/Feedback.

    2. There’s now a summary line at the top of the overview section. We also made the tone more conversational throughout the experience.

  9. Persistent feedback loop:
    We're including a feedback section at the bottom of every report page to get ongoing feedback.

  10. Table pagination:
    By default, tables will have a maximum of 50 rows. If there are more than 50 rows, pagination will be enabled.

Fixed Updated 2 Privacy & Security tab questions to reflect Not Applicable status

Marketplace Platform

We have added a “Not Applicable” response to the Data Residency questions on the Privacy & Security tab, and made the disk encryption question conditional so that apps that do not store End User Data do not need to respond.

More details

Based on partner feedback, we’ve updated the following questions to reflect a “not applicable” state for apps that do not store data:

  • “Does your app support data residency options?”

    • These questions have been updated to include the following additional response option: “Not Applicable — app does not store End User Data.”

  • “Does your app use full disk encryption at-rest for End-User Data stored outside of Atlassian or the users’s browser?

    • This has been updated to not show for partners who respond “No” to the question “Does your app store End-User Data outside of Atlassian products and services?” regardless of an app’s data processing practices. Previously, this question showed up for apps where the response for storage was “No” but the response for data processing was “Yes”.

Announcement 2 new pre-migration app checks now available in CCMA v3.4.3 and above

App Migration Platform

We are excited to announce following 2 new app related pre-migrations checks in CCMA v3.4.3 and above. Customers will be able to proceed with the migration if any of this check fails.

1. Cloud app license check

This pre-migration check verifies that all apps participating in the migration plan have an active cloud app license installed on their cloud site instance. If the license for any of those apps is inactive, customers will be redirected to manage the app license on the cloud site. Free apps will pass the check.

2. Check for apps to verify if apps can receive migration notification

This pre-migration check verifies all apps participating in the migration plan are registered to receive migration notifications. This means the check will pass for the apps that have registered a webhook to receive migration events or apps that don’t require them to function. If this check fails, the customer will be directed to the marketplace partner support portal.

Watch the changelog for future updates when this feature will be available for Marketplace Partners in the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant (JCMA).
