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 App access rule updates coming soon: expanded customer EAP & partner EAP

Marketplace Platform

In the coming weeks, a new cohort of select customers will get early access to a new data security policy rule limiting app access to content in Confluence spaces.

Marketplace Partners are encouraged to sign up for a partner EAP which will launch later this month. The partner EAP will give you a chance to test out app access rules and the new app access rule API. See how your apps will behave when blocked, and prepare apps for an optimal customer experience.

More details

Data security policies help customers keep their organization’s data secure by letting them govern how users, apps, and people outside of their organization can interact with content such as Confluence pages and Jira issues.

The new app access rule under data security policies allows customers to restrict access for all apps to the Confluence spaces under a given policy. In this way, customers can benefit from apps while still limiting 3rd-party access to certain content in select spaces.

Sign up for the EAP here.

Added Introducing signing of Connect app installation redirect URIs

Connect - Bitbucket (excludes Bitbucket REST APIs)

We’ve introduced the ability to validate Connect app installation redirect URLs for registered apps. When a redirect_uri parameter is included in an installation link, a jwt parameter containing a JWT token will be added to the URL when the user is redirected upon successful installation.

More details

Why are we making this change?

Signing redirect URIs improves security by allowing developers to ensure authenticity and integrity of redirect requests. The JWT will include a query string hash (QSH) and is signed using the Connect app shared secret.

The QSH hashes the canonical request of the redirect (excluding the jwt URL parameter), and can be used to verify URL parameters haven’t been tampered with. Verifying the JWT signature with your app’s secret will ensure the request originated from Bitbucket Cloud.

Who is affected?

If you're parsing the query parameters on the redirect URI in a such a way that breaks on unexpected parameters, you will need to update your code so that the new jwt parameter is handled or ignored.

To start validating installation redirects, follow the steps in Exposing a service from our authentication documentation.

Announcement Enhancing Churn Feedback APIs to include new fields, changes in App Names, and feedback from the new billing system

Marketplace Platform

The churn feedback APIs are now improved to provide partners with greater visibility into churn feedback-related data. These improvements include additional fields that will help map licenses with feedback after SEN deprecation for the cloud.

The following improvements will be included in the future data and will also be applied to historical churn feedback.

Churn Feedback APIs

  • App name changes - The addonName field for the feedback events will display the latest name that the app has. Until now, the app name used to be from the time the events were published. If the app name was changed, the feedback events reflected the old name. With the changes, all the feedback events will contain the latest name of the app.

  • Churn feedback from the new billing system -The churn feedback from the sites that were migrated or purchased on the new billing system will also start flowing into the feedback reports, that is, the surface (BAC - Billing And Credit Management of site) on which customers leave feedback when uninstalling the app.

  • Additional fields on churn feedback API -

    • appEntitlementID- A new identifier for the license, for example, "709a7212-3330-4ba6-9785-9804a9983373". This applies to cloud licenses only.

    • appEntitlementNumber - A new customer-facing identifier for this license, for example, "E-123-456-789".

    • cloudId- A unique identifier that represents the cloud site where the app is installed.

More details

API contract with new fields -

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 { "addonKey": "XXX", "addonName": "XXX" "feedbackType": "XXX" ... "appEntitlementId": <string>, <- new field "appEntitlementNumber": <string>, <- new field "cloudId": <string>, <- new field }

How to get started

The newly introduced field information will be accessible through the following Marketplace APIs.

  • /rest/2/vendors/{vendorId}/reporting/feedback/details

  • /rest/2/vendors/{vendorId}/reporting/feedback/details/export

  • /rest/2/vendors/{vendorId}/reporting/feedback/metrics/{metric}
