Atlassian is proud to present Jira Software 7.12 EAP. This public development release is part of our Early Access Program (EAP) leading up to the official Jira Software 7.12 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.
You can get up to 25% faster if you disable the Days in column time indicator that normally displays on issue cards on your Kanban and Scrum boards. For Kanban boards the indicator is on by default and for Scrum boards it's off. However, you can now decide if you want to use it and tweak Jira performance accordingly.
Custom fields can have a huge impact on the performance of your Jira instance, especially if they're not configured in the most optimal way. Now, you can use the Custom fields optimizer that will scan and highlight custom fields whose configuration can be improved.
You can find it in Administration > System > Custom fields optimizer, and it looks like in the following example.
Custom fields with global contexts
Currently, the optimizer finds custom fields whose context is set to global (available to all projects), yet they're being used by fewer than 10 projects. To optimize these custom fields, it's better to change their context to project-specific, applying them only to relevant projects and freeing up resources. You can do it by clicking Change context next to each custom field. We'll take care of the rest.
We’ve added the following improvements to filters and dashboards:
Here’s how it looks in Jira:
To keep you safe, we’ll notify you about every change to filters and dashboards through the following events in the audit log.
