This is cluttering the screen on issue types and projects that have nothing to do with code. I tried customizing the view and it doesn't appear in the list of fields like "Development" does. Any ideas on how to remove it from the screen/scheme for certain issue types and projects?
Hi everyone, I'm a developer at Atlassian.
We are working on an update that will change the initial glance to be more generic and will allow opting out of seeing the glance at all.
Thanks for your patience!
I got a reaction on my support ticket...
Thanks for contacting us. My name is -----, and I'll be assisting you with this case.
That is not an ad, we just let customers know about Bitbucket and Jira integration with MS VS code. This is an official integration described in Jira and Bitbucket (Official) - Visual Studio Marketplace and Use the Atlassian for VS Code extension documents. This integration actually exists for some time, recently we just decided to give more visibility to it. Currently we do not have plans to remove that link from the issue view.
We are sorry if that link distracts you from your work. I will make sure to inform the management about your feedback.
Ok, they admit they made a mistake and it will be undone.
It turned out - after some internal research - that this change was introduced as part of an experiment in relation to our VS Code integration and was mistakenly rolled out to all users. We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion that we've caused. The change has been rolled back and the VS Code field will no longer appear on your issue view.
Sorry for the incomplete or misleading info I sent you earlier, since it was not intentional, we were not informed about it.
On my test instance I do not see that field anymore, please let us know if you still have that field in your issue view.
For people confused on terminology here, "glance" is the technical term developers use for the items on the right side bar. See: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/software/modules/issue-glance/
To be completely fair, the thing is useful in relevant projects/issue types/teams. That said, it's not relevant to a majority of our issues.
With the proposed solution, are the only options opt-in or opt-out? Is that preference stored by project (or some other combination of factors) or is it global? IMHO it should be configurable just like most of the other aspects of the sidebar.
Frankly, this feature should be rolled back and better thought out before being reintroduced. Spend the time to make it useful without being obtrusive instead of a cheap plug at the expense of your users' experience.
You install the Adblock plugin, right click on this, however over Adblock, and select "block this ad." I'm still not positive about this - since I also lose my ability to adjust the due date then...
I also suggest providing Atlassian with feedback, since they do try and listen.
We don't want to install Adblock for 1000+ users in out company. We want a vendor that does not abuse our well paid trust in Jira cloud products and undermine their own product strategy by such misplaced, unintelligent advertising SPAM.
