Added Formatter support on issue view

Removed Delete board operation for team-managed projects in Jira Software

As team-managed projects in Jira Software only support one board, the ability to delete the board from a team-managed project has been removed from the Delete board operation. The operation continues to support the deletion of boards from company-managed projects. See the developer community post Change notice: DELETE Board API in Jira Software team-managed projects for more details.

Deprecation Notice Custom fields values no longer stored in issue properties

Custom field values are no longer stored in issue properties since there is now a dedicated REST API for updating values directly. This means it's no longer necessary to define an issue property key for them.

By 1 June 2021, the previous method of defining custom field values will no longer be supported.

See Jira custom field module for more details.

16 April 2021

Announcement Rebranding of Jira classic and next-gen projects

Classic and next-gen projects in Jira now have new names that are clearer and more descriptive of their corresponding project types:

  • Next-gen projects will be named team-managed projects. The functionality itself remains the same and will continue to be ideal for independent teams who want to control their own working processes and practices in a self-contained space.

  • Classic projects will be named company-managed projects. Set up and maintained by Jira admins, company-managed projects will remain the best choice for teams who want to work with other teams across many projects in a standard way, such as sharing a workflow.

Deprecation Notice Removal of non-paginated project and filter operations
