Discontinuing the Old Workflow Editor Starting from YouTrack 2018.3

If you are working with YouTrack workflows in a separate workflow editor that supports a domain-specific language instead of JavaScript, we are here to inform you that we will discontinue supporting it starting from 2018.3. YouTrack 2018.3 will require all new workflows to be written in JavaScript.

YouTrack 2018 Q3 & Q4 Roadmap

We’ve got some exciting features lined up for development in the second half of the year. As usual, our roadmap is just a projection. We can’t promise that we will deliver everything you see here — or that we won’t build other features. In our agile practice, we reassess our priorities on a regular basis.

Case Study: YouTrack, Warhorse, and the Deliverance of gamedev agile processes

Hi everyone!

As you know, YouTrack is used by development teams across lots of different kinds of industries: software, retail, marketing, and game development, among others. The process of using an issue tracker in these industries is pretty similar, although everybody has their own idea of how to use it best. Today I am happy to share the experience of using YouTrack by Warhorse Studios, a Czech game development studio famous for its game – Kingdom Come: Deliverance.


There are more than 100 people currently working in the company. We were lucky enough to have a little Q&A session with Martin Klima, Warhorse studios’ Executive Producer.

Discontinued Support for Slack Integrations over XMPP

If you’ve been working with our Slack integration that uses XMPP, we’re sorry to inform you that its days are numbered. Slack has already started to phase out support for connections through XMPP gateways.

  • In early April, they removed these connections from workspaces where they were no longer in use.
  • On May 15, Slack is closing these gateways for all remaining workspaces. As a result, integrations between YouTrack and Slack that use the XMPP protocol will stop working.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t integrate YouTrack and Slack anymore. We have another type of integration that you can use to post notifications to your workspaces in Slack. This integration uses the YouTrack Workflow API, which means that you have the power to customize its behavior and can configure the integration on a per-project basis. To learn how to set up and use this integration, please refer to the YouTrack documentation.

Unfortunately, the workflow-based integration doesn’t support the Jabber Bot. With this feature, you were able to apply commands to issues by chatting with the Jabber Bot account. We’re currently developing an app for Slack that supports commands plus a whole lot more. For updates regarding its availability, watch this space!
