Team ‘23: Guide to Atlassian’s newest announcements for Compass

As part of Team '23, Compass is announcing a ton of new features that enable platform engineering teams and developers to break down information siloes, reduce cognitive load to improve the developer experience, and intuitively share ops readiness and security standards across their organization.

From creating golden paths for your developers with software templates to new integrations with the tools you love, check out all of the latest enhancements for Compass:

  • New! Free catalog for all + pricing details: We believe every engineer in every organization should have access—without barriers—to the data they need to build and operate software. With that in mind, we’ve provided initial details about our pricing model, including a free software component catalog for all.

  • Coming soon! Software templates to empower your developers to create new components with pre-configured repositories, best-practice CI/CD workflows, boilerplate code, and all of your default Compass scorecards and metrics in one place.

  • New! Slack integration with Compass to make it easier for you to share software component details with your teammates directly in your Slack workspace.

  • New! Jira Software integration to make it easier than ever to get started with populating your software catalog, linking your services to issues, and managing the technical debt and dependencies impacting your team’s sprints.

  • New! Jira Service Management integration with Compass to help your teams get critical details about their services, reduce mean time to resolution in an incident, and understand how incidents are impacting their developer experience.

  • New! Integrations with technology partners like LaunchDarkly, CircleCI, Sonar, StatSig, Slack, New Relic, Swimm, Tidelift, Utoolity, Move Work Forward, Azure DevOps, Polymetis Apps, PagerDuty, Sentry (coming soon), and more.

Reducing cognitive load

Coming Soon! Software Templates

Empower your developers to create new components, pre-configured repositories, best-practice CI/CD workflows, boilerplate code, and all of the default Compass scorecards and metrics in one place.

With Compass Templates, you can:
✅ Seamlessly create new components and projects from Compass that adhere to your organization's standards
Fork/clone the template git repository and catalog the newly created component in one shot
✅ Share best practices and use common tech stacks to help developers deliver faster and safer with less overhead

Easily import linked repositories from Jira Software projects

Atlassian Cloud users can now quickly import Bitbucket repositories linked to Jira Software projects directly into Compass, enabling you to rapidly populate your catalog and start seeing metrics and scorecards

Jira Software and Compass enable engineers to reduce cognitive load by:

  • Clarifying technical debt to prioritize during sprint planning.

  • Revealing dependencies that impact sprint completion.

  • Tracking DevOps health associated with Jira issues.


Get started by logging in or signing up for Compass and follow the instructions below:

  1. Click “Create” in the top nav, then select “Import.”

  2. Scroll down to Jira Software, then click “Import” next to it.

  3. This will open up an import wizard that walks you through the steps to pull in linked Bitbucket repositories from Jira Software into Compass. After only a few minutes, you’ll have a Compass catalog ready to go!

Slack for Compass integration

As Compass moves toward general availability soon, we've made it easier for you to share software component details with your teammates directly in your Slack workspace.

The new Slack integration for Compass enables you to:

✅ Easily share context on dependencies impacting your sprints.

✅ Tag teammates to take ownership of their software components to fully populate your catalog.

✅ Reduce steps to improve component readiness scores with direct paths.



Get started by logging in or signing up for Compass, navigate to Slack from the App UI in the navigation bar, and follow the instructions to configure.

Improving ops readiness


Coming soon! Jira service management integration

Bring your IT and DevOps practices together! Get a whole view of your services by connecting and syncing service objects across Compass and Jira Service Management, making it easier to connect incidents to services across JSM and Compass.

✅ Help your teams see critical details and navigate between their services in JSM and Compass via a simple link/field for each.

✅ Use the native UI for each product’s schema with minimal friction

✅ Understand how incidents are impacting their developer experience by easily switching back and forth between Compass and JSM.



New configuration-as-code enhancements for Compass

Configuration-as-code (CaC) enables you to improve governance, scalability, and traceability with how you create and manage your software components within Compass. Using CaC helps you create, update, and maintain config files from a single centralized location while leveraging a consistent deployment approach to keep the data in your software component catalog up to date.

Our customers asked for it, and we’re proud to announce that you can now manage and support the following features by updating a YAML configuration file directly within your source code management tool:

✅ Manage component labels
✅ Update custom field values
✅ Manage the lifecycle attribute
✅ Declare and change the component type

Learn more about these enhancements here. If you aren’t already managing your components through config-as-code, learn more about it today!

Besides popular integrations with CircleCI, GitHub, GitLab, New Relic, Sentry, Swimm, Swagger UI, Kratix, and more, platform engineers and developers can directly integrate their favorite tools into Compass to improve visibility into their distributed architecture and reduce the cognitive load of building on microservices.
