  • Update: Removed Project Selector
    Due to an increasing number of permissions issues and other irritating inconsistencies, we’ve removed the project selector. Now, if you’d like to switch projects, please use the Jira project selector.


    While it rarely feels good to remove such a feature, we’re confident in the change thanks to many conversations with you, our customers.

  • New Feature - Four New Traceability Reports
    Four traceability reports are now available in the primary reports section. They’re outlined in the Traceability Reports section of the Reports Overview topic.


    The traceability reports that were previously available as legacy reports also remain in the legacy section. However, the new reports have improved filtering and are more visually appealing.

If you’re experiencing deja vu, it’s because we initially released these traceability report updates in November 2019. However, we received some feedback from customers regarding poor performance, so we rescinded the changes to fix our errors. We hope you find the new-and-improved versions useful. Please let us know!
  • New Feature - 16 New Gadgets
    We added 16 new TM4J gadgets (for a new total of 18), which are now available for Jira dashboards.
    Check out Using Gadgets to learn how to set them up.
