We’ve also added support for action rules. This type of script lets you extend YouTrack with actions that can be applied as commands or accessed directly from the issue toolbar. The new workflows also support custom scripts, which let you better organize and structure your code. Define your own functions and objects and use them in other rules and workflows.
Check out a short video to learn more about the built-in workflow editor.
Improved Kanban Support
It is now possible to disable sprints on Agile Board. This means that teams who follow a Kanban methodology and other users who just don’t want to use sprints can disable them completely. It is also possible to add an optional query to filter the cards on the board.
Personal Board Template
YouTrack 2017.3 comes with a personal board template that is preconfigured to be used for personal purposes. The template recognizes all of the projects where you are a team member for quick and easy configuration. The template also uses a query to filter cards on the board and show only issues that are assigned to you.
You can now use projects to identify the swimlanes on an agile board. This feature is very helpful for those who track activities from various projects on one board. You can enable this option to identify swimlanes by values from the project field in the board settings.
It is now possible to set up throttling for login attempts and verification of user credentials to prevent brute-force attacks and increase data security. Learn more about how it works in the documentation.
