Announcer 3.0 release notes

What's new in this release

Integrate with Statuspage

In this release, the Announcer Series is integrated with Atlassian Statuspage - a communication tool that's integral to the incident management process. With this integration, notifications about incident statuses can be displayed to your Confluence, Jira, or Bitbucket teams. You can configure how you want the users to view this important information about the incidents. For example, you can display the incident status as a banner.

Two new configuration options, integration and Active incidents, are now available.

  • integration: Use this option to connect to StatuspageTo configure the integration, you need the base URL and API token from Statuspage. You can further configure the announcements to display notifications from specific Statuspage pages.
  • Active incidents: View all active Statuspage incidents here. Depending on the specified End Of Life (EOL) for announcements, these incidents are shown as enabled or disabled.

For more information on how to integrate Announcer with Statuspage and configure a Statuspage announcement, refer to the Admin guide.

Identify Statuspage notifications

You can now easily find Statuspage active notifications in the Announcer Configuration page as these have an  icon beside them. These notifications cannot be edited or deleted as these reflect the statuses directly from Statuspage.

You can upgrade the app by navigating to > Manage apps. Please see the User Guide for usability information.
