Here you will find all the posts related to my work done on Atlassian tools. As of 2017 I have been working primarily as Atlassian consultant where I help companies in rolling out Atlassian tools like Jira, Jira Service Desk and Jira Software. I am loving this work as I get to work with many companies and travel a lot. Currently I live in London but I am from Delhi originally. I self taught myself to work on Jira and I gained expertise on it after doing several implementations. I also wrote couple of books, the latest one is Mastering JIRA 7 which is quite popular. Enjoy the posts, have fun :)

Project Managers love complicating workflows in Jira because they are not experienced or skilled. In majority of cases a simple workflow with three statuses like To Do, In Progress and Done is all you need.

Too many #Jira integrations?

It is great that Jira can be integrated with other tools using REST API but you should always monitor the usage of these integrations because too many integrations can cause performance issues.

You should regularly monitor the usage of various apps in your instances and get rid of the apps that are not needed. Saving money is also your responsibility.

It is not possible to change custom field type in Jira but you can always create a new custom field with the same name and migrate the data.

Not many Jira admins utilise the security schemes in Jira to hide certain issues from users.

Make projects hidden by default in #jira

Submitted by ravisagar on Mon, 06/10/2024 - 07:22

It is a good idea to ensure that new project created in Jira is hidden by default and only people added to that project can access it.
