Answer the Challenge to support a great cause!

Innovalog's Stump The Expert Challenge

The upcoming holiday season will feel quite different for many people this year, which is why it's important that we give back. Give back to communities and groups who need extra support and love. Give back to people in need and to organizations that care for others.

Recently, I was chatting with Rodney Nissen (a.k.a, thejiraguy.com) about the Holidays, this challenging year, and, of course, Jira. An idea was born. An idea that evolved from a mere competition for a prize into a much bigger project - a charitable contest that will give back to the community.

In addition to making Jira work for their organization, Jira Administrators have another responsibility: training users to properly use it.

For those of you who have that responsibility, you'll be excited to know that now there are additional resources available. Rachel Wright's new LinkedIn Learning courses can help you ensure Jira is fully utilized across different teams.

New features in Jira Misc Custom Fields (JMCF) now available

JMCF v 2.3.0 is here

JMCF v. 2.3.0 for Jira Server and Data Center is here, and it brings the following new features: 

Auto-indexing of related Jira issues makes searching accurate

​When displaying an issue, the value of all its Calculated (Scripted) fields is re-computed on-the-fly. Therefore, the value of any Calculated field will always be up-to-date. But when searching for issues, Jira uses the Jira index, which stores the value of all standard and custom fields and is only updated when an issue is modified (or the index is re-built).

Sequence of Post-functions: ensuring a predictable post-function execution order [new in Jira Cloud]

sequence-of-post-functions-jmwe

In Jira Cloud, during a transition, all post-functions run in parallel. Often, however, you need actions to be executed in sequential order. This new post-function, Sequence of Post-functions, allows you to combine several JMWE post-functions into one sequence so that they can all run in a predefined order. For example, if you need, during a transition, to first create a new issue and then send a notification email mentioning the new issue, you need to make sure that the first post-function has finished running before starting the second one. The sequence would ensure that it runs properly.

Scheduled Actions: automating post-functions outside of workflows [new in Jira Cloud]

scheduled-actions-for-jira-cloud

Schedule actions for one or more JMWE post-functions to run against issues returned by a JQL search.  


Regular workflow post-functions run on transitions, but now you can schedule JMWE post-functions to run against issues returned by a JQL search. For example, you can automatically transition any issue escalated yet not addressed for over 24 hours.

Shared Actions: reusing post-function configurations [new in Jira Cloud]

shared-actions

Create shared JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) that can be reused in multiple workflow transitions. 


​In Jira Cloud, JMWE post-functions (or sequences of post-functions) can now be configured once and then added to multiple transitions across different workflows. It lets you quickly reuse (and then maintain) common configurations. For example, set multiple fields using set field value post-functions and then add them to transitions as one Shared Action, without the need to recreate them again and again. Or configure a post-function to send an email, and then reuse it in different workflows.
