YouTrack Harmony EAP

It is important to distinguish EAP from pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be far below even usual beta standards.

Features Already Available for Evaluation

  • New Reports
  • Alternative Geeky UI
  • Ability to use AND in search queries
  • Shortcuts Customization
  • Canvas Image Tool

New Reports:

  • In the current EAP only new types of reports are available, not yet the Dashboard.
  • To use new reports, you must switch to the new UI: open 'Reports' section in YouTrack UI, and click 'Try New Interface' link in the top-right corner. New reports are not available in the current UI ('Regular Interface').

More Information

YouTrack InCloud Harmony EAP

If you prefer to try all the fresh goodies without any installation and configuration, simply create a user account in our YouTrack Harmony InCloud EAP instance. We'll be updating it to the latest build as soon as we can deliver.

What you need to know about this server

  • By default, all currently available features are enabled for all users.
  • This is Early Access Program, and we reserve the right to update the server as often as we see fit, without any additional announcement, and thus you might encounter a brief periods of downtime. Please be patient.
  • We might update the build, which runs on the hosted EAP instance, more often than we publish stand-alone EAP builds (e.g. for testing purposes), and thus the number of build on hosted instance and the number of the latest published stand-alone EAP build might be different.

YouTrack Harmony Stand-Alone EAP Builds

With this EAP we introduce a new approach to evaluation of new features in EAP builds. By default, visibility (hence, availability) of new features in EAP builds are controlled by so called 'Feature Flags'. That is, you can enable and disable these features at your will.

Enabling New Features in Stand-Alone Builds

Basically, a feature-flag is a JVM '-D' start parameter that you must provide when you start your YouTrack Standalone EAP Build. You can provide these parameters either in the starting command (thus features will be enabled for the current session only) or in the configuration file of your JVM (thus you don't need to control constantly whether you have enabled the feature or not).

Feature-flags are divided in two types:

  • General. These feature-flags are binary, and allow only switching a feature on/off for your YouTrack Standalone server. That is, when such 'general' feature in enabled, it is available for all users on your server ('All Users' group).
  • Per User Group. These feature flags allow enabling features for both all users and specific user groups only. To enable a feature with such flag, you can use two methods: binary 'true' value and with a list of user groups, to which the feature should be available. For example:

Currently Available Feature-Flags

If a parameter supports customizing user groups, then you should provide a comma-separated list of groups.

Feature Java Start Parameter Custom User Groups
New 'Geeky' UI -Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.newUi=true Yes
New Reports Screen -Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.newReports=true Yes
Canvas Image Tool -Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.canvasImageTool=true Yes
Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts -Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.customShortcuts=true No
Multiple Drafts -Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.multipleDrafts=true Yes
Dashboard with Widgets -Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.dashboard=true Yes
UI Redesign:FSI & create/edit issue mode Djetbrains.youtrack.feature.regularUiUpdate=true Yes

Attention!

  • The new 'AND' operator in search queries is enabled, by default, and is not controlled by any feature-flag.

In any other regard, installation/running procedures are similar to those of the released builds.

Important Upgrade Notice!
1. We strongly recommend that you evaluate YouTrack 'Harmony' EAP builds in a test environment, since you will not be able to revert to YouTrack 5.x other than by rolling back to a pre-upgrade backup of your database and losing your progress along the way!

2. Please upgrade your environment to Java 1.7 before running YouTrack 6.0 EAP. Starting from build #11415, earlier Java versions are not supported
