Fab Features From JIRA 5

Connecting Applications

You probably already know JIRA issue keys make magic happen: Link any issue to changesets, code reviews, and builds by simply dropping the issue key into your commit message.

Want to link that issue to a requirement doc in Confluence? How about an opportunity in Salesforce or support case in Zendesk?

JIRA 5 introduces remote linking to anything with a URL, offering complete tracebility from your critical business applications down to each line of code.

Connecting Activity

JIRA 5 is the go-to place to stay updated on everything happening across teams, projects and applications.

Remote applications can now add updates to JIRA 5 activity streams so your development team gets instant feedback when specifications change in Confluence, builds fail in Bamboo, and new test execution cycles start in Zephyr.

JIRA 5 ensures your team stays in the loop with what's going on within your organization.

Learn From Past Experiences

JIRA Query Language (JQL) has powerful new operators to let you search on all of the ways issues have changed, giving you new insight into the movement of work within your workflow, between priorities, and across teams.

JQL now supports historical searching on assignee, priority, resolution, and status. You can even refine your search by who made the change and when it was made.

Quick Create & Edit

Create issues rapidly using the new Create Issue dialog. Simply select the 'Create another' check box to create a series of similar issues - JIRA automatically re-populates the field values you just filled in! 

The new Edit Issue dialog box remembers your last set of field choices, giving you a personally customized set of the fields you use most.

Connecting Development to the Rest of the Business

Want to connect your application with JIRA 5? With our new and improved Stable and REST APIs the sky is the limit.

Check out how Minecraft – the incredibly addictive game about placing blocks to build almost anything you can imagine – connects to JIRA 5, to ensure that you never lose track of the things you are building ever again!

You can find JIRA add-ons for test management software, time tracking, project management, and hundreds of other uses. Discover JIRA add-ons in the Atlassian Marketplace or from the Administration console of JIRA.

JIRA’s REST API has undergone significant changes and improvements with JIRA 5 – including all the possible ways to search for and work with issues and their related objects.

This means external developers can integrate with JIRA OnDemand completely remotely. Search for and work with issues, insert events into JIRA Activity Streams, and tie objects in an external application to JIRA issues directly with Remote Issue Links.

JIRA 5 Deep Dive - Remote Integrations

Users, administrators, and plugin developers will all rest assured that any JIRA 5.0 compatible plugins that use the new Stable API will continue to work as expected with JIRA 5.x releases. You won't need to wait for action from a plugin developer before you can upgrade to JIRA 5.1 and beyond.

JIRA applications enhance the functionality of JIRA 5 by providing powerful solutions built directly on top of the JIRA platform.

Add agile project management to your JIRA projects with Greenhopper. Explore real-time test case management and dynamic test results with Zephyr. Browse hierarchical issue lists and a rich user interface for sub-tasks with Structure. Connect your organization's activities and report on them with Tempo

Whatever your need, JIRA applications give you the power and ease to manage your workload from within the interface you know and love: JIRA.
