Excellent service and project management tool

Reviewed a year ago

For the past five years, I've been using Jira, and during that time I've noticed a big improvement just about every time. It has been easy for us to keep track of the work that other teams have completed by logging it and adding service level agreements. You can use it to delegate tasks within your team, track progress on common goals, and share updates with your colleagues in real time or behind closed doors. Because of this, it is an incredible instrument.

Pros

The default settings for Jira Service Management allow you to maximize its potential right away, with nothing in the way of setup. It is possible to personalize it with a wide variety of settings so that it functions just how one would like it to.

Cons

Because our SSO implementation needs it, in order for a user to sign into the customer portal, they will first need to sign into the parent Jira site.

A great option for on-site ICT service desk management

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall we are very happy with Jira Service Desk; it has allowed us to provide a higher level of support to users than our previous service desk, and non-profit pricing was very beneficial for us. The software is usable in its default setup but we have found that there is still plenty of customisation that can be done if needed to suit more complex requirements.

Pros

I find the UI of Jira Service Desk very clean and modern compared to other service desks software on the market. Included with the service desk is a customisable user-facing portal for users to raise tickets in, which proved very popular with staff when raising tickets alongside traditional email tickets. Due to the way Jira splits service desks into different projects, we were able to create service...

Cons

For a service desk technician using Jira Service Desk the back-end UI for managing tickets can be a little overwhelming, however this can be fixed by editing the default workflows for tickets to hide not required information and details. The administration settings are somewhat unintuitively set out for system administrators, but once you get to grips with the layout it becomes easy enough to find what you need from the settings page. We found the instructions on the Atlassian website for setting up an external redirect with a custom URL in IIS a little sparse on detail, but a quick trip to the Atlassian forums cleared up any queries we had with the process.

Jira is a good tool but need to know the limitation

Reviewed 2 months ago

The ITSM offers a high-quality service and a competitive price compared to other tools. However, it requires a skilled implementation partner for a successful deployment. This tool also needs ongoing support and maintenance to ensure optimal performance. It is not advisable to rely on a short-term professional service during deployment without continuous support/improvement.

Pros

Jira's ITSM module is user-friendly and intuitive. You don't need much training to master it. One of the features I appreciate most is the ability to mention other people with @ in the comment section and keep them updated on the ticket status.

Cons

The IT asset management module is very complex and requires a lot of configuration to enable the basic features. The out of box feature in this module was not useful for my purposes. I had to set up the IT asset classes from the schema level, which was time-consuming and tedious.

A great tool that brings visibility, productivity and collaboration to the team

Reviewed a year ago

You can take so much value from Jira is used correctly and if the team is well aware on how to use it. We use it on our daily standups and it helps a lot see what other team members are doing and their progress. You can easily spot who has more buffer and who needs a hand. The history feature is also a big plus to see what was changed in the description of the cards. I see this tool is a perfect fit for big companies.

Pros

Estimating the team's velocity can be pretty accurate when the users fill in their Story Points and the time to completion. Cards also provide a lot of information, team members can collaborate in the comments section and the ability to create sub-tasks is a big plus.

Cons

Jira can become overwhelming for newcomers, specially if there are no explicit policies on how to use it. Also, when marking tasks as Done, it feels the completion time fields are a bit redundant.

Powerful and Capable, but easy to over complicate things

Reviewed 3 years ago

Initial setup can be complex but it can also be super powerful if you are able to configure it properly. It's visual scripting and workflow tool is really capable and easy to learn

Pros

Its flexibility. It's a simple statement, I agree, and you're probably reading this wondering why I'm being so vague. But JIRA software is a bit hard to summarize simply because it's just so flexible. There's no "correct" way to use it. It's rest API is pretty powerful too and very easy to extend Jira to "integrate" with 3rd party applications that doesn't have an official Jira integration.

Cons

Creating workflows can easily become very confusing and you can easily break how your projects in Jira work if you aren't careful. With every Jira production license you also get a free dev license so that you can set up an isolated dev/staging environment. This is invaluable and highly recommended. The downside is that there is no easy way to migrate any of your changes from dev to production. But there are 3rd party plugins for that.

I hate Jira and think the only reason everyone uses it is that they're just used to suffer.Here's an article about it:[SENSITIVE CONTENT]

Pros

After latest update the visuals are quite pleasant.You can really construct complex filters if you know what you're looking for.Task IDs unfurl into links.Permissions are very granular (although complex and you won't understand how to use them).

Jira is The Best Project Management tool

Reviewed 9 months ago

A powerful tool for service management and ticket tracking that has made a difference in my work. It has many values. JIRA Service Management is generally seen as a powerful tool for service management and ticket tracking, with many features, including customization options, automation capabilities, and detailed reporting and analytics. It can also be integrated with other Atlassian tools like Confluence to provide a comprehensive project management and service management solution.

Pros

JIRA Service Management is a powerful tool that enables teams to customize workflows, processes, and reports according to their unique requirements. It seamlessly integrates with JIRA, allowing teams to easily switch between project and service management workflows while sharing information. The collaboration capabilities of JIRA Service Management are exceptional, as teams can use comments, usernames,...

Cons

Limited Mobile App Functionality: While JIRA Service Management offers a mobile app, some users have reported its limited functionality compared to the desktop version. This limitation can make it difficult for teams to manage service requests on the go.

About Jira - Project Planning

Reviewed 3 years ago

The initial setup was quite a challenge but, here we are. It's an awesome system for tracking project issues, especially for new clients during onboarding.

Pros

It's a good platform to track issues that are being handled by each individual in a project. It also has the option for notification being sent out when an item has been resolved, closed, or has gone overdue. If it's configured correctly to have a backup, the team members involved can always learn from the past incidences reported. This will ensure that the team leader will be able to identify recurring items, timelines it took for resolution, and the team member assigned to resolve such items. This ensures that such items are priority issues that need in-depth understanding for them to be resolved permanently.

Cons

As an organization, we have not been able to integrate Jira with osTicket, which our customer Experience team uses. This means we have two Systems, and at times this can be overwhelming to track issues on both Jira and osTicket.

Great Project Management Tool that enables teams to cross collaborate and become efficient

Reviewed 6 months ago

It is very user friendly, once the adoption and the knowledge of what is trying to be achieved, Tasks become a huge help on a daily project lifecycle

Pros

The most important part of the Jira functionality is the availability to enable teams to create, update, comment, assign, and establish a clear channel, and expectations that are required to complete a project in an organized and efficient fashion, the feasibility of documenting and creating a project status report based on tasks, pre-defined or project tailored tasks.

Cons

I believe that graphical interface dashboards would help to be robust, meaning, more detailed information, and the availability to generate clear reports is always useful for clients that don't want to access Jira, and just want an insight dashboard or the Project Lifecycle.

Dig Deep Before Buying

Reviewed 5 years ago

It has solved some of our immediate business needs out-of-the-box or with moderate configuration effort. But as a full solution it is missing a handful of simple, but crucial, features. It definitely "feels" like a second version. It needs a third.

Pros

JSD is relatively intuitive and easy to learn without needing tons of documentation. Initial pricing is attractive. A decent plugin community fills some gaps, but be expected to pay on top of the initial JSD pricing.

Cons

Many "obvious" features are either missing or do not work as expected. For example: in many cases, once an internal user is added to an issue, they no longer receive notification about internal comments. This is completely unintuitive, unexpected, and has caused many people frustration: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDSERVER-3410 Another example: Email traffic about an issue is *always* public....

What I did like the most about JSD is the fact that you have a customer portal, a way to track and view your tickets at any time. You can customize the product to at very last detail without too much trouble.

Cons

The stability of the software can be a sensitive balance after you reach 500.000 issues created on your instance.

Excellent project management tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been working with JIRA Service Management for 4 years now and I found out that every process connected to software development can be easily described and tracked using this tool. I have also used the ticketing system a lot and found it very intuitive and always found what I needed.

Pros

It's the best tool for project management I have worked with. It's best at tracking progress of user stories and tasks, but works well also as a ticketing system and time tracking application. It is easy to track multiple projects at once thank to a possibility to create dashboards and groups for each of them. It can also be integrated with confluence in order implement an integrated knowledge base.

Cons

The text editor could be improved, as well as some features could be implemented to make the user stories and filtering management a bit more user-friendly and provide better user experience.

Jira Service Management a Powerful Ticket System

Reviewed 8 months ago

Overall when the software works it does the job, it's a bit of a nightmare to configure and the costings are not the cheapest but not as expensive as competitor products, i.e. zendesk, freshdesk etc.

Pros

Works very well as a ticket system, it's very customisable and uses JQL for custom queries if you're inclined towards detailed reporting. Third Party Addins available online in their marketplace and bountyful automation features.

Cons

It's very difficult to setup requires alot of time and effort and the software is not userfriendly so if you're implenting for a team that isn't IT literate then perhaps include some extra training days.

We're using Jira to manage our tickets and it works well. There are solid alternatives and competitors in the field, so I'm not sure for how long we'll keep using jira.

Probably the top program for managing projects

Reviewed a year ago

Jira is a sophisticated and flexible project management solution with a wide range of applications. Jira's strengths lie in the depth of its task management features, the breadth of its integrations, and the depth of its reporting and analytics tools, all of which contribute to the program's capacity to help you better understand your projects and teams.

Pros

To accommodate the fact that various people have different ways of doing things, this user interface may be easily altered to fit individual needs. Jira makes it simple and quick to design and implement unique workflows and rules. One way to break down large projects into manageable chunks is to keep everyone in the loop on how things are shaping up.

Cons

Jira's flexibility allows for personalization, but more in-depth modifications may call for specialized skillsets.Performance difficulties: Some users may have performance issues, especially when working with larger projects or those that include complicated procedures.
