Abstract: Microflares are small transient brightenings in the corona observed in X-ray and EUV. Although the scale is different, they share common characteristics with ordinary flares in active regions. We review the properties of microflares captured by X-ray and EUV observations, and discuss the relationship with eruptive events such as X-ray jets and macrospicules. Recent observations show that the lightcurves at different temperature can be interpreted as a cooling of a small flare loop. Coronal jets or dimmings associated with the bright points reflects magnetic field configurations in the surrounding.
