Hub 2017.3 Help

What's New

We deliver updates and improvements to Hub on a continuous basis. Here's an overview of changes that are available in Hub 2017.3.

New Features

Authentication ThrottlingThe Hub authentication module now has the capability to apply rate limits to login requests, also known as throttling. Throttling helps protect the application from brute-force attacks.

When you enable this feature, the Hub authentication module applies rate limits to logins and requests to verify credentials.
Experimental FeaturesWith the release of Hub 2017.3, we introduce experimental features. In 2017, Hub switched to shorter release cycles. We plan to include features that are in early stages of development in each release. This lets us collect feedback and fine-tune features before they’re fully implemented. Get a taste of things to come and share your thoughts with us.

Updates and Enhancements

Redefined Project TeamsIn preparation for an upcoming change to project teams, the project team is simply defined as the list of users and groups who are assigned to the project. Users and members of these groups inherit the Developer role in a project. The option to designate specific roles as team roles has been removed.

This change affects which users are presented as members of the project team on the project profile page. For a list of changes that are associated with this update, see Redefined Project Teams.
OAuth 2.0 Presets for GitLab and Bitbucket CloudTwo new pre-configured authentication modules let your users sign in to YouTrack with their accounts in GitLab or Bitbucket Cloud.

All of the endpoints and mappings that are required for setup have been configured for you. All you have to do is register Hub in the connected authorization service and enable the authentication module.

Experimental Features

Custom WidgetsYou can now upload custom widgets and add them to your dashboards. Extend the functionality of your dashboards to grab content from external sources or present data from connected services in a unique format.

Manage the status of each widget in a central location on the Custom Widgets page. We've even built a playground where you can preview and test your widgets.
