Atlassian is proud to present JIRA Service Desk 3.8 EAP. This public development release is part of our Early Access Program (EAP) leading up to the official JIRA Service Desk 3.8 release. We are making these EAP and Release Candidate milestones publicly available so that developers can start assessing the impact of the changes that we are making.
JIRA Service Desk 3.8 also includes the JIRA 7.5 platform changes, and for the full list of changes in JIRA 7.5, read the developer change management guide: Preparing for JIRA 7.5. If you are new to JIRA, you should also read our Java API Policy for JIRA and the Atlassian REST API policy.
Long awaited, events for creating and deleting issue links have landed in JIRA. You can now use them while building your plugins, or to get informed whenever an issue link is created or deleted. The new events are IssueLinkCreatedEvent and IssueLinkDeletedEvent.
When creating webhooks, you can use the following events. The string in parentheses is the name of the webhookEvent in the response.
For more info about creating webhooks in JIRA, see Webhooks.
