Atlassian news 23/5/2022 👇

Let's start this week's news with the small but handy improvement that was announced in the Confluence search.

When you search for content in Confluence you'll be able to see the breadcrumbs in the advance search result.  This is great because it gives you a context of where the page is located which is especially handy if you have similar page titles.  

The Confluence breadcrumbs feature is currently being rolled out and you should see it in your Confluence soon!

New safe customer notifications in Jira Service Management

Atlassian just announced launching a new feature for Jira Service Management to help customers with tighter security compliance requirements. Specifically controlling the level of potentially sensitive data that you send through email notifications about tickets.  

You can now find a toggle in Products Settings for JSM that allows you to hide the information like issue summary, description, comments and attachments from being sent via email to the customer. This means the customer will need to follow the link to their raised ticket and see the updated information on the service desk platform instead.

📚Article of the week: State of the Developer report

Atlassian run research to see how developers prefer to work and what they want to work on.  They interviewed 2,000 developers across Australia, Germany, India, and the US and collected their answers and thoughts in the State of developer report.  

You can check the report in the detail, but here are fur interesting highlights 👇  

1. Research shows that greater autonomy makes developers happier at work, despite more frequent context switching and increased job complexity.  

2. "You build it You run it" approach is an increasingly common practice, with almost 60% of teams currently working this way.  

3. You build it You run it teams are more likely to continue growing in size than traditional development teams.  

4. And last, Developers think that coding and reading code are both valuable skills, but this doesn’t mean that those skills can never be replaced by tools.  

If you're managing a team of developers or you're a developer yourself it's definitely worth having a look at the report, or if you don't have as much time have a look at the article that sums up the important points.
