Automation power to the people: Introducing AutoBlocks for Jira

AutoBlocks for Jira is Adaptavist’s visual, low code tool, based
on Google’s open-source Blockly technology, that allows all users of
Atlassian tools (business or technical) to create complex automations
and customisations to mold Jira to meet their needs.

“Automation is critical to modern IT success so we’re thrilled
AutoBlocks now makes it easy for both technical and non-technical users
to tap into the power of automation and enable agile workflows across
the entire company running on Atlassian,” says Joff Redfern, VP of
Product at Atlassian. “It’s great to see top Marketplace vendors team
up, think customer-first, and solve challenges together. This open and
collaborative approach shows how Atlassian’s culture transcends into its
thriving ecosystem.”

In the spirit of DevOps and continuous integration, Adaptavist has
partnered with leading Atlassian Marketplace vendors, ALM Works, Tempo
and Riada to enable the use of this powerful technology with other apps
that have a presence across Atlassian’s customer base.

“We are happy to support our long-time partner, Adaptavist, in their
effort to make automation simpler and accessible to a larger audience,”
says Igor Sereda, CEO, ALM Works. “Our app, Structure for Jira, is
perfectly fit for integration with AutoBlocks. The combination should
provide greater flexibility for users and enable a wider range of
solutions for our customers.”

“When it comes to providing better customer experience and remaining on
the forefront of innovation, we at Tempo are glad to have Adaptavist as
partners to spearhead that movement,” adds Ingi Brown, Project
Management Lead at Tempo.

“We are always aiming to make things easier for our customers and
Autoblocks can provide an easier way for our customers to tailor the
Insight automation framework. We’re therefore looking forward to work
with Adaptavist to enable Autoblocks for Insight,” says Tommy Nordahl,
CEO at Riada.

Disruptive digital transformation offerings to be showcased at
Atlassian Summit

VisualScript Studio launches to provide data visualisation for
Jira and Confluence. Now development teams can track and create visual
reports and dashboards to see complex relationships and create
transparency across departments. And customers are already finding
value. “We have always used a physical whiteboard to visualize Sprint
dependencies, features and relevant milestones during our PI Planning.
VisualScript Studio has provided us with a real-time dashboard in Jira
to visualize this data. As a result, we have started to see improvement
in collaboration and efficiency across globally distributed
implementation teams” says Rob Negus, Director of IT Product Delivery,
Agile and Delivery Management Office, Arm IT.

Introducing best practice-as-a-service to the Atlassian ecosystem

Assist is Adaptavist’s on-demand Atlassian administration
