I can help. I was thinking of creating this page or blog or whatever you want to call it where I will list all the necessary resources to help your become a Jira expert.</p> <h2>How to use this page?</h2> <p>I will try to categorise my resources with tags and this page will have things in order starting from beginner level to advanced. So you may want to bookmark this page and come back here from time to time. Although my site is built on Drupal with new things updated automatically on the home page and there are separate sections for everything but this page can be your starting point.</p> <p>Most of the resource as I mentioned before will be on this site with embedded videos so it will be easier to keep track of things. P</p> <p>Ready, good. Let us start.</p> <h2>There are primarily 2 type of skills</h2> <p>1. Jira user</p> <p>You have to use Jira as a developer, tester, helpdesk agent. If your organisation is using Jira for non technical projects even then you can learn to use Jira. You could also be a project manager and I would treat them as users as well although they can do few additional things like managing their own projects. </p> <p>2. Jira Admin</p> <p>You already know how to use Jira but now wants to learn the Administration. This could be because you are expected to learn it for a new job or role or may be you are looking to start your career as a Jira admin or consultant. </p> <p>We will start with of course the usage of the tool but majority of my resources will focus on making you an expert. </p> <p>All the resources are created by me alone. I may from time to time give reference to external sites but you will find links to either my blogs or videos. </p> <p>It will be free. Although I do have books and videos courses but I won't be promoting them or ask you to buy so be assured that I am trying to help here. J am doing this because first of all I like it, I like learning new things and keeping myself updated so I would also take this opportunity to learn and share it at the same time. </p> <h2>Can you contact me?</h2> <p>Of course, I am on all social sites and the best way to get further help is to comment to my post. You can comment on this site but I received lot of spam so most likely your comment will get lost. You can comment on my youtube videos directly or reply to my posts on twitter or on linkedin. If you use the contact form on this site, I may be able to respond soon but again I have my life as well and I can certainly not help your personally but I will try my best whenever I can. As I said earlier I like learning and sharing. Simple.</p> <h2>Ok how do I get started? - Beginner to Advanced</h2> <p>1. Go to <a href="https://atlassian.com" target="_blank">Atlassian</a> website and learn about various products. Yes this is very important step.</p> <p>2. I know you are on this page because you want to learn Jira. So get yourself access to a Jira instance. On this site most of the resources are based on the Jira Server version, however wherever applicable I will mention if I use the cloud version.</p> <p>3. Keep an eye on my blog, I write mostly about Atlassian tools and Jira.</p> <p>4. Subscribe to my <a href="https://youtube.com/ravisagar1">youtube channel</a>. Again 90% of my videos are on Atlassian tools.</p> <p>5. Subscribe to my <a href="https://open.spotify.com/show/7zGIwq6wTBjncOtkHVe8LM">Spotify Podcast</a>, yes I write, make videos and also do podcasting. 90% of my content probably a bit more is around Atlassian. So the more information you can consume, the more you will learn.</p> <p>6. The best up to date resource to learn any Atlassian tool is the official documentation and you should refer to it regularly and bookmark it.</p> <p>7. Learn about various deployment options. This is important because you want to decide early whether the Jira you want to setup or manage is hosted by Atlassian called as Cloud or on premise version called Server which again has one more version called Data Center.</p> <p>- Podcast: <a hreg="https://open.spotify.com/episode/1ucxn17ItIZaDT0bM5L62r">Learning Jira Administration on cloud vs server</a></p> <p>8. Feature wise all deployment options have 90% of the things common but may be 70% depending upon how much you want to customise it but if you want to get a quick idea about how Jira looks like you can always do a 1 week evaluation of Jira on Atlassian Cloud and then decided later if you want to use it or not. Also the server version can be evaluated for at least a month. So long story short just sign up for the cloud evaluation version.</p> <p>More to come. There will probably be hundreds of steps here. So hang on and check this page again from time to time.</p> </div> <span><span lang="" about="/users/ravisagar" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">ravisagar</span></span> <span>Fri, 07/05/2019 - 15:50</span> <div class="field field--name-taxonomy-vocabulary-1 field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/jira" hreflang="en">Jira</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/atlassian" hreflang="en">Atlassian</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/787" hreflang="en">Ultimate Guide</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/788" hreflang="en">Jira Tutorial</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/789" hreflang="en">Free Jira Book</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/790" hreflang="en">Best Jira learning resource</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-featured-blog field--type-boolean field--label-hidden field--item">Off</div> <ul class="links inline list-inline"><li class="statistics-counter">33 views</li></ul><section> <h2>Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=851&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="QKZmv8vGlokW936YxJtZX2qhkjaKyeHiZZlMsBeGbYQ"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Fri, 05 Jul 2019 14:50:44 +0000 ravisagar 851 at https://www.ravisagar.in How to give read only access to a project? #JiraTips https://www.ravisagar.in/notes/how-give-read-only-access-project-jiratips <span>How to give read only access to a project? #JiraTips</span> <span><span lang="" about="/users/ravisagar" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">ravisagar</span></span> <span>Fri, 06/28/2019 - 07:51</span> <ul class="links inline list-inline"><li class="statistics-counter">33 views</li></ul> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2019-06/IMG_20190626_084914.jpg" width="4000" height="2000" alt="Barbican London" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Very common question people ask, how do we give someone just the read only access to the project.

It is a great utility in Jira but it takes time to do proper mapping of fields and process the data in Excel. Even after testing everything on a test project in a test instance I used to still miss something in the CSV. I even wrote macros to process the sheet but still it never always worked perfectly. </p> <p>So to revert the incorrect import I had to delete or modify those issues and to do that I had to find them using JQL first. </p> <p>To easily find the recently imported issues I always used a unique label in the CSV file or update any field uniquely to segregate those issue when needed. </p> <p>This was a little tip. I hope it was helpful. Enjoy. </p> <p>By the way I recently restarted podcasting, feel free to follow if you want.

I don't think the existing books (including mine) were written with a purpose of providing a guide to clear the exam. We are anyways not allowed to share sample questions asked :)</p> <p>Each book is based on experiences of author when they were working as Jira Administrators. You will learn something different from each book. Comparing them is probably not a good idea. </p> <p>Someone who is already a Jira admin and wants to clear the exam. Here are my tips.</p> <p>1. Some preparation before you start a proper preparation</p> <p>Do sample exam, it is short but will help in assessing where you are.<br /> Make sure you already know Jira customisations, if not delay your exam.</p> <p>2. Based on features of the tool (You don't want to loose marks just because you forgot something).</p> <p>Get a test instance of Jira Server. No add-ons.<br /> Download the exam topics and print them.<br /> Open Atlassian documentation and read those topics word by word (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT). Everything asked will be somewhere in the documentation.<br /> While you are reading those topics, practice on Jira instance (VERY IMPORTANT). You want to remember different things on the UI. The questions will try to confuse you but if you recently did a hands on then you will remember what you practiced.<br /> Make plenty of notes on paper for each topics (VERY IMPORTANT). This is just to fill your brain with terms, keywords, possible options that appear on the UI. This worked for me, If I write something, most likely I remember it for the next few days.<br /> Before the exam, I prefer reading my notes.<br /> I prefer going to the centre hour in advance, nervousness of the exam, going to the centre helps in keeping my focus.</p> <p>3. Based on your experience</p> <p>If you have been working as a Jira admin then you probably know when not to create another set of configurations or better ways of doing things to save time and optimising existing configurations.<br /> Just use your best judgement</p> <p>4. For exam</p> <p>Round 1: Spend one hour answering simple questions, that requires no further thinking. That you can answer straightaway. Less than 1-2 mins per question max.<br /> Round 2: Answer questions that requires some thinking, in those cases reading answers will give you some clue.<br /> Round 3: Review<br /> Answer everything (last time I checked there was no negative marking)<br /> Bonus tips: Don't drink too much water before/during the exam ;), wear relaxed clothes and be your best to feel confident.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-taxonomy-vocabulary-1 field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/category/topic/atlassian-certified-jira-administrator" hreflang="en">Atlassian Certified JIRA Administrator</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/jira" hreflang="en">Jira</a></div> </div> <div class="empty-geofield"></div> Thu, 20 Jun 2019 20:50:27 +0000 ravisagar 843 at https://www.ravisagar.in ScriptRunner for Jira tutorial for beginners https://www.ravisagar.in/blog/scriptrunner-jira-tutorial-beginners <span>ScriptRunner for Jira tutorial for beginners</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>I have been using ScriptRunner for Jira for many years but I never bothered to learn it properly.
