What's new in Jira Service Management Server and Data Center 4.16

Hi Atlassian Community,

Emily here from the Product Marketing team at Atlassian writing to you with the latest from our most recent release, Jira Service Management Server and Data Center 4.16 (full release notes here). Here are the highlights, all of which are shared with Jira Software Server and Data Center 8.16:

  • Get more insights into the usage of custom fields: Every custom field now includes data about its usage so you can identify the important ones and part ways with the rest.

  • Delete many custom fields at once: We’ve also added a way to select and delete multiple custom fields at once.

  • Configure default values for system fields: We're introducing a possibility to configure a default value for the Description field. Admins can now add and apply contexts with a default value to multiple issue types and projects.

  • Let users log in with multiple identity providers: Admins can now configure multiple Identity Providers (IdPs) in SAML and OpenID Connect configuration, and let users choose the right one for them as they log in.

  • Check the status of your data pipeline exports: The data pipeline allows you to export current state data from Jira, then feed it into your favorite business intelligence platform (such as Tableau or PowerBI) for analysis. You can now check the status of the latest export from Jira.

  • Keep Jira safe by disabling basic authentication: We’ve included a way to disable basic authentication on the login page and in API calls.

Please read the release notes to learn more. 


Thanks for reading,
