      Atlassian Status as of November 2023

      Hi everyone, 

      Thanks for your feedback on the latest update regarding Components in Team Managed Projects. I wanted to give a new update and clarify some information about Compass. 

      We are currently in the process of adding Compass functionality to the existing Components field in Company-Managed Jira Software projects. This will be an optional feature (i.e. you can still use Jira Components as normal if you prefer) and will improve the functionality of the field, while bringing information about your component catalog in-context into Jira Software. 

      Compass' catalog is free, and will remain so for the future. Even if you move to a paid plan for some users, you have the ability to add an unlimited number of Basic (Free) Users who will have access to view the catalog and use Compass Components in JSW. 

      We hope you'll give this new, native functionality a try when we release this sometime in January. We do plan to add support for Compass in the Components field in Team Managed Projects as a follow up, so I will update this ticket when that's on the way. 

      Thank you,


      Compass Product Manager 

      Update from July 2023

      Hi everyone,

      Thank you for your continued interest in this feature. Bringing the existing Components feature into team-managed projects is still not something that we will be focusing on in the next year.

      Aside from utilising Company-managed projects to use Components in your projects as a workaround, we have now added support for Compass, our developer experience platform, to team-managed projects.

      Compass offers the ability to manage a catalog of software components which can be added to issues to both your company and team-managed project types. This catalog is free for anyone using Jira - once you have signed up for Compass, you can add the field to your team-managed projects by searching for the “Compass” field through Project Settings > Issue Types. See further details here.

      Within Compass, you have a single catalog to manage the components of your software architecture, from services to libraries to APIs and more. Any Compass component can be added to any issue, even across multiple projects. If you try it out, please share your feedback with us on https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Compass/ct-p/compass or through our in-product feedback.

      Carol & the team at Atlassian

      Update from May 2021

      Hello all,

      Thank you for watching, voting, and commenting on this issue.

      We use this data as well as many other inputs to feed into our prioritisation process. Bringing Components into team-managed project/board is not something that we will be focusing on in the next year. We want to share this with you to ensure you can plan out your use of projects within Jira Software effectively.

      In the short term we recommend teams use company-managed projects when you need to use Components. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you.

      Please continue to vote and in particular please continue to add comments on how your teams find value when using Components. This contextual information of what you are doing and why you are doing is invaluable for us in providing you with a product that will grow with your needs.

      Thank you,
      Product Manager
