Compass: Interactive map view for your dependencies!

If you're using Compas Alpha you can enjoy a newly released feature - Component dependency map. In the addition to the list view of component dependencies, you can now use this visual dependency map of your component with key component information like description, when it was last deployed, and so on.

Atlassian is looking for feedback on this view to see how to improve it further so go give it a try and let them know in the comments on the post.

Security transparency between Marketplace app developers and customers

To help customers and partners streamline sharing of security information and build trust, Atlassian enables customers to request the self-assessment answers developer submitted for their apps.  

This post invites any Marketplace partner to consent for Atlassian to share their self-assessment submission with customers evaluating their apps. The questionnaire answers will be sent to customers who ask for them as they are, and customers will be able to contact the partner for further clarifications.

Forge apps in JSM

Forge developers are finally able to create apps for Jira Service Management. This latest upgrade in Forge brings JSM specific API endpoints and eight new modules dedicated to tickets, queues, portals, and so on.  

In the post, you'll find a couple of examples of the modules shown on tickets but I'm honestly excited at the thought that we'll be able to add modules on the portal. There are also examples and use cases of what you could build with these new JSM features.
