Meet the new Figma for Jira app

We’re introducing a new version of the Figma for Jira app in open beta.

Reduce context switching and create a shared source of truth across Figma and Jira.

Hidden workspaces

Rolling out to Enterprise accounts over the next week: Org admins on enterprise accounts can now designate workspaces as “hidden” for more control over their sensitive content. Users who are not a member of the hidden workspace won’t be able to see it, but can still interact with individual documents they’ve been added to.

Billing groups

Rolling out to all Enterprise accounts over the next week, org admins can now sort users by cost center into a new container called billing groups. This allows them to track costs while using workspaces for content organization and collaboration.

As part of this roll out, license management will transition from workspace admins to billing group admins. Workspace admins will no longer upgrade and downgrade users in their workspace or participate in true up.

Retiring Community Remixes

Users will no longer be able to publish remixed versions of other Community files. Don’t worry, existing remix files will not be removed. We encourage you to continue sharing, collaborating, and iterating as a Community, while creating resources that are as unique as you are.
