Jira Ops Early Access Program Update #10: Why we added two more severity level options

Welcome to your weekly Jira Ops Early Access program update, where we’re sharing news and updates on Jira Ops progress as we work toward our 1.0 release. If you ever want to drop us feedback or ideas, you can leave a comment on this post or shoot us an email:

New severity level options

We’ve added two new options for severity levels in Jira Ops.

Now, when you select a severity level you’ll see five different options to chose from.

1 - Critical
2 - High
3 - Moderate
4 - Low
5 - Informational


The change comes from user feedback. We want to give you options to manage an incident process that works for you. Previously only three severity levels were available, but you can certainly continue to use fewer levels if you prefer.

We’ve put a lot of thought into severity levels and how we use them at Atlassian. You can check out our incident handbook to learn exactly how we manage sev levels for major incidents.

Coming soon: Raise incidents directly from Slack

We’ve gotten a lot of feedback from users that being able to raise incidents directly from Slack would be helpful.

We definitely agree, and we wanted to let you know that this is something we’re currently exploring. If you have suggestions on how this should work or what you’d like this feature to include, send us a note and we’ll have a chat.

Let’s chat

See you in 2019!

With the holidays coming up, we know a lot of folks are taking time off. So are we! We’re going to take a holiday break from these weekly updates for the next two weeks. We hope you enjoy a relaxing, incident-free holiday and a happy new year. If you’re on call, Godspeed.
