New forum functionalities


I don't understand why there is no a dedicated forum for each application (JIRA, CONFLUENCE, ...) like it was before this new forum?

Today, everything is mixed and it's not easy to treat only JIRA posts.

Or maybe there's a trick or another forum, per products?

Thank you.

Hi François,

Answers has the concepts of "tags", which correspond to the old individual forums but also allow you to put a question in more than one category if needed. Clicking on a tag or searching for [tag] in the yellow search box will show you only the questions with that tag.

For example, to see only JIRA questions, you can go to or type [jira] into the search field.

And hopefully one day you will be able to subscribe to tags such that you actually get all the mails from the tag!

Jamie, you already can unless I misunderstand you. There is a mail preference to get notifications to your favourite tags.

You can, but I only get around ~50% of the mails that I should do for the tags I'm following.

Also, see this already asked question
