If you're using the JIRA integration, here's a small change you should know about. We're updating how reporter and assignee fields get populated when a productboard feature is pushed to JIRA.

Previously it worked like this:

  • The user who pushed the feature became the issue reporter
  • The feature owner became the issue assignee

Now it works like this:

  • The feature owner will become the issue reporter
  • The issue assignee field will be left blank

We made the change after learning that most of you consider the feature owner to be the product manager, whereas the JIRA assignee is the person actually developing the feature.

While you can't yet assign a feature to a developer right from productboard, at least it will be easier to see which issues still need to be assigned to someone in JIRA.
