descriptionChoose when products get changes and new features. Learn more about release tracks for Jira and Confluence.



This feature is available for Jira Software, Jira Service Management, and Confluence with Premium or Enterprise plans.

Release tracks determine when you and your users get changes and new features for Jira Software, Jira Service Management, and Confluence.

Track options

Description

Changes included

Continuous

Products receive changes and features as soon as they become available. Products are on the continuous release track by default.

All changes.

Bundled

Products receive changes as a group on the second Tuesday of each month.

Visible changes that require people to adjust the way they are working, but do not cause significant impact to the organization. For example:

  • moving a button

  • a new task the user needs to complete

  • a new setting

  • a new step in a Jira workflow

There are visible changes that aren’t included in the bundled track because they roll out over a longer period of time. These changes could be the deprecation of a product or feature, or a large, significant change. Examples of large, significant changes include moving to:

  • the new issue experience in Jira

  • the fabric editor in Confluence

Bug fixes and security and performance updates will always be rolled out as soon as they are available.

Currently, Jira Service Management features powered by Opsgenie aren’t included in the bundled track.

When you switch your product to the bundled track, we stop all in-scope changes rolling out and hold them until the next bundle rolls out.

When your product switches from the bundled track to the continuous track, your product starts receiving changes within a few minutes.

View all your product changes from the Release tracks page or from your email.

To view your product changes through the Release tracks page:

  1. Select the name of your organization at admin.atlassian.com to access your

    Administration overview.

  • For a product on the bundled track, select the release under Next release or Last release in the release tracks table

  • For a product on the continuous track, go to our Cloud release blog

When a product is on the bundled track, we email you the product every month with the future product changes and the date your product will receive them.

Your bundled release can take up to 3 days to roll out.

Configure release tracks for your sandbox

With sandboxes, you can create an environment to test and experiment with changes. You can choose to have your sandbox on the same release schedule as your production environment or configure the track combinations to get changes earlier than your production environment. Learn more about sandboxes

You may want to experiment with changes in your sandbox before they roll out to production. You can choose the bundled track for your production environment and choose the continuous or preview track for your linked sandbox.
