Atlassian announces new updates for Opsgenie, AgileCraft, and Confluence

Atlassian on Wednesday (April.10th) announced several new features to its products at its 2019 Summit in Las Vegas, according to an SDTimes report.

Atlassian also revealed that it has rebranded the AgileCraft business planning application that it acquired last month to ‘Jira Agile’.


The software company also updated Opsgenie, the incident management solution it acquired in September, with new features, including a new incident timeline for tracking key events and response activities and post-mortem to help discover root causes and track remediation activities.

Opsgenie is also getting a new interface that aligns with the rest of Atlassian products so that user can easily work across Bitbucket, Jira and Jira Service Desk, using the same Atlassian identity system. A direct integration with Jira allows incidents to automatically trigger Jira tickets.

Atlassian’s Confluence Cloud collaboration software has also been revamped, with new features for creating visuals and better-organised content.
