Atlassian Open DevOps Release: New Code capabilities optimize development experience

Atlassian Open DevOps is enhancing developer collaboration and experiences by reducing friction in the development process, increasing visibility across the SDLC, and eliminating tedious status updates. This blog contains release details on the latest capabilities in Jira Software’s board view, issues, and Code tab. Read on to learn more.

Got questions or need help? Comment below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Lack of SDLC visibility is a top challenge in DevOps

From the ever increasing amount of code, to tool sprawl, to the adoption of microservices, it’s no wonder organizations are struggling to figure out what’s going on within their codebases.

Lack of visibility into the software lifecycle remains one of the top challenges for organizations. A 2019 SmartDraw survey revealed that 84% of respondents find DevOps visibility a somewhat to extremely important goal, with 100% of those respondents actively working to gain real-time visibility. This results in DevOps teams being held back from making data-driven decisions, improving the quality of software releases, and collaborating as a team.

Introducing new Code capabilities in Jira Software

Atlassian Open DevOps delivers visibility across the software development lifecycle (SDLC) by allowing teams to see work happening across projects, teams, and toolchains. With this latest update, developers can build branch name templates, view a feed of recent pull request (PR) activities, and get insights into development progress on Jira board view. See sections below for further technical details.

Build branch name templates

Code to issue linking is a best practice for information sharing across development teams. We’re reducing friction when code to issue linking, allowing developers to start coding quickly.



Within the issue view, developers are given pre-filled branch create commands, allowing them to start coding without the configuration fuss. Simply copy and paste into a terminal.

We recognize teams have configuration standards – different from those auto-generated by Jira Software – to maintain their branch architecture. So, we’ve added the capability for developers to create their own branch create configuration templates, allowing them to define how these branch create commands are auto-generated.

View PR activities in Code tab


Next, we’re providing developers with insight into how they can best direct their time and effort through a recent PR activities feed. This feed is a superset of pull requests (PRs) across a single project from the past 30 days. Visibility into what’s happening across teams and repositories allow developers and supervisors alike to compare data, identify anomalies, and make data-drive decisions. This feed can be filtered by author, reviewer, status, and repository, and also includes search capability.

View Code insights on Jira board view

The PR activity feed helps facilitate granular conversations at the PR- and issue-level. As a complement, we’ve added Code insights on the Jira board view to facilitate team- and project-level discussions.



With four new icon types – Branch, Commit, PR, and Deploy – the Jira board view visually and instantly communicates status to keep stand up conversations focused on the bigger picture. Code insights aim to facilitate productive conversations that enhance team collaboration.
