Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug for Jira Server and DC connections that caused invalid-permissions errors when removing a workflow author as a watcher.
  • Fixed a bug for Jira Server connections that caused default users to sometimes disappear when editing and executing (with prompt) the Create Jira Issue step screens.

New Feature

We listened to your feedback and made two big improvements to the Create Jira Issue step:

  • Opt-in checkbox to become a watcher for new issues 👀
    No more unwanted watcher notifications for workflow authors! The option to be a watcher on Jira issues created by a workflow is now an opt-in checkbox on the Create Jira Issue step. We still use author credentials to create the new issue, but we remove you automatically if you don’t opt-in to be a watcher.

  • All Jira fields can be set by workflow users 🤩
    Previously, users who triggered a workflow were limited in regard to which fields they could update. However, we’ve made big improvements to the Create Jira Issue step to make workflows more dynamic and customizable. Now for all Jira fields, workflow authors can choose fields to set, dictate which fields the triggering user is required to set, and provide field defaults. See it in this 30-second video, or jump straight to our revised workflow templates to try it for yourself.

    To view and set the Jira fields, click Yes for the following option: 

Your existing workflows will continue to work just fine. No updates are necessary if you’re satisfied.👌

Product Launch! 

We're proud to announce the official launch of Workflow Steps for Jira, a new Adaptavist app that complements Slack’s Workflow Builder and allows everyday users to create integrations and automations with all of their Jira instances, with no coding whatsoever. 

The app is free while we try to figure out how it can best help teams, and it will likely be free forever for small teams, so there's no risk in taking it for a spin. We've even created ready-to-use templates to help you quickly get started.

Browse our growing customer documentation to learn more. And if you have ideas for how we can improve the app, we'd love to hear your suggestions on Nolt!

Workflow Steps for Jira currently supports Jira Server and DC, but support for Jira Cloud is 100% coming very soon, so bookmark this page for future updates!
