A Reminder: Discontinuing Support for Internet Explorer

Dear users,

Last February, we announced that we will discontinue support for Internet Explorer 11 starting from YouTrack 2019.2. The release is planned for July 2019, so we kindly remind you to switch to one of the other supported web browsers before the release.

What does this mean?

In earlier versions of YouTrack, we have only supported versions of Internet Explorer earlier than Internet Explorer 11. Starting with YouTrack 2019.2, we will no longer guarantee the stability of YouTrack functionality in any version of IE and will no longer fix bugs that only affect this web browser.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions or difficulties – we are here to help!

Make public! The advantages and disadvantages of public issue trackers


We as users have to deal with different tools every day. The tools may have bugs or be missing a feature we desperately want to have in it. There are different ways users can report these issues.

Sometimes we need to send the companies an email, other times we should fill out a form on their website, or if we want to report an issue a little less privately, we can always use social media, which we might scare the developers of the application into getting our issue solved a little bit quicker? But is there a better way? In our opinion, there is. They are what’s known as Public issue trackers. But for some reason, very few companies use them. Today I want to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of having a public issue tracker and share some tips on how we handle the one we use at JetBrains.

Make It Workflow — Part 12: Storing Data between Workflow Runs

Every now and then the question as to whether it is possible to store data between workflow executions comes up. For example, when a team lead wants to show an informational message to the entire team, once to each person. The most straightforward way to achieve this would be to add a flag “hasSeenTheMessage” to each user account. However, YouTrack doesn’t allow you to define properties like this via the workflow, though we are planning to support such use-cases in some form or another in the future.


In the meantime, I want to show you how to work around this problem using the existing workflow capabilities. OK, so before we dive into the code, let me first briefly explain how different types of workflow-accessible data are stored in YouTrack.
