Example scripts are now available in-app: no new tabs required!

You can now access the entire contents of the library website directly from any script editor. The examples are pre-filtered to match the feature you’re working on, so you’ll only see Behaviour scripts in Behaviours.

You no longer need to open a new browser tab to find a starter script: hundreds of scripts are right there, beside the editor, ready to adapt, combine, and customise.

Your feedback in action

One of our awesome users gave us a wish-list feature to save time when switching users. We’re delighted to share that Administrators can now quickly switch user when hovering over a user profile within an issue or in the User management space. Previously admins could only switch user through the Switch User built-in script. Could your wish be granted next?
