Setting direction is one of the most important things you’ll do when building a product and company. You can now organize your projects under milestones by enabling Roadmap in your workspace settings
. Once enabled, you can create milestones that are shared by all teams in the workspace and associate projects with these milestones, essentially creating a prioritized roadmap of projects.
Additionally, we’ve redesigned the team projects views as lists to make it more glanceable and consistent with the rest of the application. You can define the project lead and members of a project now as well, to communicate project ownership to the rest of the company.
Linear Method: Roadmap
We design Linear based on the principles and practices we use in product development. Today, we’re sharing our first in-depth post on the Linear Method
which is, unsurprisingly, about roadmaps: what they are, how you can use them, and why they’re so helpful for building high quality products. People often ask us how we use Linear at Linear, so we explain how we use roadmaps, too. Read it here
OAuth2 authentication for API
To make it easier to build integrations on Linear’s GraphQL API, we added a new authentication method, OAuth2. Unlike previous personal API keys, OAuth2 makes it easier for your users to authenticate with your application and Linear. We also added more fine-grained scopes to the API so that you can only get the access you need. Several companies have already built their integrations on OAuth2, including Jam
, and our Zapier integration
is using it as well.
To start developing a new Linear OAuth application, head to your API settings
and create a new application. To view applications that you have authorized to access your account, go to your application settings.
