We deliver updates and improvements to YouTrack on a continuous basis. Here's an overview of the changes that are available in this version.
The 2020.5 release is specifically dedicated to upgrading our workflow engine and officially discontinuing support for legacy workflows. This release version doesn't include any new features or other major updates.
Updates and Enhancements
|Field Value Consistency Checks|
We've added a tool that lets you check for inconsistent sets of values for custom fields in your projects. This tool can help you resolve problems with missing issues in search queries and errors when applying commands.
We're currently working on an interface that lets you import issues and articles from external sources. When finished, this feature will replace our preconfigured import scripts that rely on Python.
In YouTrack 2020.5, the logic that supported legacy workflows has been removed completely. As a result, any legacy workflow that is still attached to a project in YouTrack will stop working.
|Old YouTrack REST API|
We have provided documentation for all of the public endpoints in our new YouTrack REST API. The old REST API is officially deprecated. We will discontinue support for the old REST API later this year.
If you have an existing application or integration that uses the old API, we encourage you to migrate your applications to the new API. The new OpenAPI Specification (OAS) is a great tool to help you get started. If you have any questions or require additional support, join our YouTrack Community in Slack.
