Version 3.1.1

Bug fixes

  • This release fixes a bug where no new projects could be created when one of the original Jira statuses (Open, In Progress, Reopened, Resolved or Closed) had been renamed prior to the app's installation.
  • Agile Hive workflows were not created due to missing statuses, so project creation failed with an error message. Agile Hive now ensures that all needed statuses are created instead on relying on them being present on the Jira system.
  • The plugin has to be deactivated and reactivated after upgrading for the workflows to be created.


Version 3.1.0

  • Migration Wizard
    • Easy Agile Programs is no longer needed (the costs of Agile Hive are therefore lowered up to 50%)

Version 2.28.0

Bug fixes

  • Fix treatment of Objectives with no "Uncommitted" Field on the Screen
  • Fix Problem with exporting the Business Value Custom-Fields to the Jira-Macro in Confluence


Version 2.27.0

AgileHive 1.10.0-bundle

Bug fixes

  • Fixed wrong calculation of “Days passed” when viewing future PIs in the Agile Hive Reports view
  • Fixed a massive Heap-Memory consumption bug in the Agile Hive Context Panel, caused by Jira issues, which are linked incorrectly in the hierarchy and formed an endless loop. In general the Agile Hive Link-Validation prevents such situations, but they can still occur by migrating or importing Data or by using the REST-API
  • Fixed an StackOverflow error in the Portfolio Report, caused by Jira issues, which are linked incorrectly in the hierarchy and formed an endless loop.


Improvements

  • Several minor visual improvements in the Agile Hive Reports & in the Project Hierarchies

Project configuration improvements (only affects new installations)

  • The issue type Enabler is added to the context of the Story Point field and is now capable of using Story Points
  • Agile Hive fields are now being created without a description to avoid a bug where Jira adds unexpected <p> tags
  • Improved sorting order of all WSJF fields in Agile Hive screens
  • The field “User business Value” has been removed from all objective screens

AutoPage 2.9.0-bundle

Bug fixes

  • Accessing an Issue which does not participate in an AutoPage rule sends an unnecessary HTTP request to the the Jira-Server which results in an HTTP-Error 400

InstaPrinta 2.6.0-bundle

New templates (existing templates are not affected)

  • The new template "Agile Hive" combines the old "Agile Hive - Story" and "Agile Hive - Feature” template into one template, which shows different information based on the issue type.


Version 2.26.2

Bugfixes

  • Fixes a bug in the new Portfolio level Reports


Version 2.25.0

Bugfixes

  • In rare cases, incorrect sprints were shown in the Agile Hive reports.


Version 2.24.1

Bugfixes

  • Reduce Logging in Case of missing or expired License
  • Fix (harmless but annoying) Exceptions during Installation


Version 2.22.0

Bugfixes

  • The status of the Risks is now correct in the reports' Risk Panel
  • A problem during installation was fixed that occurred when Jira already had a status that only diverged from the statuses that ship with Agile Hive by casing.

Improvements

  • The tooltip text in the PI-Progress widget is now more descriptive
  • JQL-Search can now search for all Agile Hive CustomFields

Known Problems

  • If you upgrade from an older Agile Hive release, the Custom-Fields "Actual Business Value" and "Planned Business Value" are still text fields and can't be searched for. In the next release they will be converted to Fibonacci-Sequence Number-Dropdown fields and this problem will be resolved.
  • If you can't view Issues after the update and instead see error messages similar to `Error rendering '…'. Please contact your Jira administrators`, please restart your Jira-Instance to resolve the bug. It originates from Jiras inability to accept changes in CustomField types' signature between Plugin Updates.
