MAY 22

Fixed ! Rule actions triggered multiple times for version release trigger ๐Ÿž

There was a bug due to which rules with version release trigger were getting executed multiple times. This has been fixed now.


Customization of 'Group by' fields layout is now completely flexible ๐Ÿ‘

'Group by' field WYSWYG editor is here. As opposed to the earlier 'custom CSS' approach, we now have released a full-fledged WYSWYG editor to tackle the group by formatting.

Note: This change is applicable only for the new templates and existing templates will continue to show earlier 'custom CSS' approach.

Support for sprint variables is here ๐Ÿฅณ

If you use 'sprints' in your agile software development, you can generate release notes for your sprints created in Jira through ARN. Just like version variables, ARN now supports sprint variables in the templates and JQL sections. Plus, we have added ability to trigger a rule automatically when a sprint is marked completed in Jira. Read more.

โ€œExpandโ€™ macro is one of the Confluence's most popular macros. ARN confluence template now supports ability to include expand macro. Read more.

APR 22

Remote pdf generation service introduced as a backup ๐Ÿž

A couple of customers are facing problems while generating release notes in pdf format. While the behavior is very peculiar, we are still not able to reproduce it and thus fix it. Thus, a temporary remote service is being allowed to be used for PDF generation. This service will be used for a couple of months until we release a new version of the app that includes a different library for pdf generation.


Fixed a bug preventing users to view logs in a certain scenario ๐Ÿ“

A bug where logs were not accessible when the rule creator was deleted from Jira is fixed

MAR 22

PDF library upgrade โฌ†๏ธ

Library used to generate the documents in PDF format is now upgraded to the latest available version.

MAR 22

Improvement in rule execution logs !

When a rule is triggered, entry for individual rule actions which are queued for execution, shall be seen in the logs immediately. This will give quick confirmation to the user that rule is triggered successfully. Status of individual rule actions shall get updated when they get executed one by one.


Notification to admin while disabling 'run rule as' setting โš ๏ธ

Admins shall be notified with list of projects which have active rules with rule actor โ€˜App userโ€™ when they disable โ€˜run rule asโ€™ setting. This will help admins to identify and disable such rules if required. Read here more about โ€˜run rule asโ€™ setting and its impact.


Now, create and execute rules from cross project ARN screen ๐Ÿ“ข

Ability to create rules and publish release notes from cross project ARN screen is here. You can create rules for email, confluence, POST action and JSD announcement actions with manual trigger. You can also see rule execution logs within cross project ARN screen.
