Welcome to the new Feature Release Summary hub

This new hub is designed to assist you in finding the ideal version to upgrade to, all while catching up on any enhancements you might have missed since your last update.

Create a UI Fragment directly from a fragment location

You now have the ability to create a Fragment directly from a specific location. Allowing for faster creation of new fragments when the Fragment locator is activated. As with all Fragments, we advise conducting tests in a development environment prior to deploying in your production environment.
Take a look at our Feature Release Summary for details on the latest updates we've implemented in Fragments.

Automating your Assets in Automation for Jira has just gotten easier (BETA)

We’ve recently developed a number of actions and triggers that let you easily monitor, create, and update Assets using Automation for Jira. In addition, with our new Lookup Asset actions, you can now easily retrieve objects and reference attributes in other actions.
Check out our documentation for more details on how to use these new actions and triggers.

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.

The new Example Scripts button is your go-to destination for finding basic and advanced example scripts in seconds, without having to leave the ScriptRunner app! Hundreds of scripts are right there, beside the editor, ready to adapt, combine, and customise.

New and noteworthy

Here are some of the most recent updates to ScriptRunner for Jira on-premise that we think you need to know about.
Remember you can always access the latest release notes in our documentation.

Fragments enhancements

  • New Duplicate feature for Fragments.
You can now duplicate a script fragment from a fragment's ellipsis menu. Check out the Script Fragments page for more information.
  • Fragments locator update
The fragment locator on the Script Fragments page has also been updated to a toggle button for better visibility. Previously the locator was a clickable link.

Vendors API

A new API which makes the custom fields from your favourite Atlassian Marketplace apps compatible with our Behaviours feature. This means that, as a Jira user, you can use Behaviours to perform the following actions on custom fields created by participating third-party Jira apps:
  • Set field values
  • Get field values
  • Make fields writable or read-only
  • Monitor fields for changes
  • Automatically update set list values when new options are added
You'll be able to manipulate these fields and incorporate them into your Behaviours setup as though they were standard Jira custom fields. Learn more.

Built-in Execution Failure Notifier

Get alerted about script execution failures with this new feature. Simply set it up once to listen for any failures in your instance, and get instant notifications if something goes wrong. Say goodbye to costly downtime and hello to efficient, effective script monitoring! How to set it up.

We're always improving HAPI

You can now update comments using HAPI. Check out the Work with Comments page to learn more about what you can do with comments.

We've also developed HAPI updates for creating an issue and Assets.

Keep up to date with the latest updates and enhancements to HAPI in our changelog. View the changelog here.

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?
