Release Notes - Cloud

Discover our latest feature updates and improvements for JQL Search Extensions for Jira Cloud.

Oct 30, 2023

Deprecation of Subqueries feature

From October 30, 2023, the Subqueries feature is no longer available in JQL Search Extensions. This change affects customers with saved JQL subqueries who installed the app before April 2021.

The 6-month deprecation plan was communicated to these customers with recommendations to convert any subqueries through Extended Search before the feature was deprecated. Extended Search provides an equivalent function for every subquery JQL keyword with better performance and reliability.
