Better support for multi project story maps

You can now use multi-select custom fields, sync releases across projects and assign issues to more than one custom swim-lane.

  • The app now supports custom field swimlanes of type "Multi select list"
  • If you have a board consisting of issues from multiple projects, you can use releases with the same name in a unified swim-lane. This is especially useful if you have a version sync app installed.
  • Custom swimlanes are now unique for each story map. This means that issues can be in different custom swimlanes on different maps. Be aware that this only applies to newly created story maps.
  • Story maps with 500 issues or more will now load faster, we added better keyboard support and fixed an issue related to story point estimation.

Major updates and a new name

Story Mapping for Jira - Pro is now Advanced Story Maps for Jira!

We have added a significant new feature to this release: Dynamic maps. You can now load any agile board and manage epics, stories, tasks, and their issue links on the fly, and all changes will now reflect 100% into the agile board. Additionally, managing the app configuration has gotten much easier - use the new hierarchy button in the top right-hand corner to modify the map's issue hierarchy and link types. The changes will appear instantly in the map view.

Link types can now be configured in both directions, so you do not only have to work with the "outward" link Use custom field values as swim lanes, for example for cross-project release planning Ordering top-level elements and epics will not reflect back on their board rank
