GitHub Issues & Projects – July 13th update

Today's Changelog brings you sorting improvements, the ability to select a template or form when creating a new issue from your project and adding a new option to a single select field from the side panel!

🗄 Improvements to sorting fields

You can now sort items in a view using two different fields. Select Sort by in the view menu and select a primary sort field, and then hold down Alt (Option on MacOS) to select the secondary sort field.

Accessing issue templates in Projects

When creating a new issue directly from a project, you can now choose an issue template or form to apply.

Simply use the + button in the project omnibar and select Create new issue to get started.

Adding a new single-select field option from the side panel

We've updated the side panel so that you can add a new option when editing a single-select field. Start typing and you'll be prompted to add a new option if the text doesn't match an existing option.

GitHub Actions – OpenId Connect (OIDC) integration with AWS is now optimized to avoid pinning any intermediary certificate thumbprints.

While configuring GitHub as an OIDC IdP (ID Provider), AWS now secures communication by trusting GitHub Actions’s trusted root certificate authorities (CAs) instead of using a certificate thumbprint to verify GitHub’s IdP server certificate.
This will address and avoid any issues caused due to pinning certificate thumbprints while authenticating from GitHub to AWS using OIDC. No action is needed for GitHub customers.
