ScriptRunner Behaviours for Jira Cloud is here

There’s almost nothing more exciting for a product team than being able to deliver the number one most-requested feature for your users, but we’ve been able to top that excitement. How? By delivering our most-requested feature leveraging a newly-launched API, using forward-looking technology, and with the help of our friends at Atlassian.

If you’re in a rush right now, here’s what you need to know:

Want to know more about what you can do with the first release and what we’re looking at next? Let’s take a look!

Behaviours is live on ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the Adaptavist blog, you might have been waiting for this news to drop, and the day has arrived. ScriptRunner Behaviours for Jira Cloud is available right now.

Forge-ing a path ahead

Behaviours is the first of its kind: the release of a feature for an Atlassian Connect app to be built and delivered via an Atlassian Forge app. We’ve worked hard, collaborating with Atlassian, to make sure that installation and navigation are straightforward and familiar.

Those who already have ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud will now see Behaviours in their administrative menu. On your first visit to this screen, you’ll see a link to the Atlassian Marketplace to install the supplementary app.

Once installed, you can access Behaviours through this same menu item, right alongside all of the other features of ScriptRunner for Jira. We wanted to create a seamless experience which allowed admins to continue accessing all of their ScriptRunner superpowers from a single place.

(Note: If you try to install Behaviours on an instance which doesn’t yet have ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud installed, you’ll be invited to install the main app. The Behaviours app cannot be used standalone!)

What’s included in the first release?

The feature debuts with the following:

  • The ability to create Behaviours on five of the most popular system fields in Jira:
    • Priority
    • Summary
    • Assignee
    • Labels
    • Description
  • The ability to perform these actions for the five supported system fields:
    • Hide and/or show fields
    • Change field names
    • Change field descriptions
    • Set default field values

We could not be happier to announce this launch. There’s more information available about initial use cases and what comes next on the Adaptavist website, but if you want to get stuck in: go grab the app!

What comes next?

This is just the beginning for Behaviours, and our attention turns next to adding support for custom fields!

The final thing we want to say is thank you to all of those who have been invested in this journey with us. To our customers, your enthusiasm for what we’re trying to do has kept us going and your feedback has been invaluable. To our colleagues here at Adaptavist; the flexibility and persistence make us proud to claim you as our own, and of course our collaborators at Atlassian without whom this simply wouldn’t have been achievable.

We hope you’re as excited as we are!
