'Epic Link' was not shown as a link in 'group by', fixed ! 🐛

There was a bug due to which the ‘Epic Link’ field when added as ‘group by’ field in JQL section, was not properly shown in the template as a link (even when ‘display as a link’ is enabled). This is now fixed.

Bug

Insert page break in PDF templates 📑

Ability to insert page breaks in PDF template is now added so that, you can format the PDF output in a better way.

Story

Support for second level 'group by' field is here ! 👏

Now, you can add up to two fields in ‘group by’ configuration of JQL section. When two ‘group by’ fields are added, issues returned by JQL will be grouped by second ‘group by’ field within each group created by first 'group by' field. Read here more about this.

Story

New & improved JQL suggestions 👏

JQL suggestions are now more relevant & appear in logical groups. You will also get suggestions for the ARN specific variables which makes template creation lot more easier.

Multiple line breaks were getting ignored

Multiple line breaks included in the multiline field were getting ignored when transporting them to ARN. For the presentation nerds out there, we have corrected this behaviour 🙂

Bug

Font size of 'Custom field' was not getting updated 🧐

There was a bug which would not allow change of font size when one or more ‘Custom Fields’ were included in the JQL section. This is now fixed.

Bug

POSTing the Markdown template 📑

ARN now supports the possibility of POSTing the Markdown to a pre-defined URL. This works especially well if you want to post the content to MS Teams.

Story

Adding more permissions for granular control ⚙️

Jira admins now have more control over the sensitive features of ARN to protect the organization's data from being released in public domain. Read more about this here.

Hyperlinks from Scriptrunner's custom field were not rendered properly 🥺

To prevent XSRF, we had sanitised some special characters earlier. That caused some legitimate hyperlinks from Scriptrunner’s custom fields to not render properly. This is now addressed.

Bug

Date time was auto added to headers in PDF templates

There was a bug that inserted date time into headers of PDF release notes generated via ARN. This is now fixed 🐞

Bug

ARN evaluation license can now be extended beyond 3 months 🥳

ARN server/DC variant supports evaluation up to 3 months. Now it is possible to extend it beyond by deleting all your existing data and starting fresh simply by confirming so within the app.

Story

Welcome custom styling of 'Group by' fields 😻

The way ARN rendered Group by fields in release notes was hardcoded. Now it is possible to apply custom styling to the label & value of Group by field.

Story

Dynamically include issue users as release notes email recipients 📧

Don’t limit release notes communication to pre-defined set of users, add issue users dynamically to the list. e.g. reporters, creators, assignees, watchers or any other multi-user custom fields.

Story

'Run rule as' parameter to honour existing Jira project permissions 🔐

In Jira cloud, an app has a peculiar user called ‘App user’. This user has access to all Jira projects.
Before this, if anyone tried to use a JQL query (in ARN templates) that pulled data from projects they don’t have access to - they will see the data. But with this change, we are running every rule in the capacity of rule creator and allowing additional configuration of changing this behaviour - by turning on the ‘App user’ configuration.

Custom fields in release notes were returning values inconsistently 😟

In order to improve performance, we used a wrong API. ARN was fetching historical values for Custom fields included in the templates. This now stands corrected.
