Our Product team is happy to release the following product improvements this month. JSU is available from the Atlassian Marketplace.

What’s New


1. Permission scope change - manual update required

We have introduced a permission scope change to JSU Cloud as part of an email opt-in feature to help us communicate better with our customers. This change requires a manual update of JSU Cloud.


The permission scope change enables us to access the email address associated with your Atlassian account. This is required for the email opt-in option feature included in this release. Please be assured that you will not receive email communication without your deliberate consent. Email contact is a privacy option for our customers that you can enable or disable on the Settings page in JSU.

What do you need to do?

This latest release requires a manual update. Updating will also ensure you receive future product improvements and new features. In your Jira instance, go to Apps > Manage your apps > JSU then click Update. Once you update JSU, you can opt-in to email notifications from our Product team.

2. Email opt-in feature

This release includes the email notification opt-in feature. Once you update the app manually, an in-app message displays the option to receive emails from our Product team with the latest news, security notifications, and occasional feedback requests. Choose Notify me to grant permissions to JSU and enable the option, or, Not now to dismiss the notification without enabling the option.

By opting in to email notifications, you agree to Appfire's Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement (EULA). Our EULA provides more information on how we keep your data secure, including compliance with Atlassian Marketplace security and privacy requirements.

What if you change your mind

You can change your opt-in preference anytime using the Email Notifications toggle on the Settings page in JSU.
