Pros

It is an outstanding platform easy to use, with a great UI design, and wide range of customization and con configuration.

LD

Luis D.

It is so easy to get started with Jira. They have awesome integrations into other atlassian products as well (we were using Trello before) so switching to Jira was almost seamless.

AA

Ameer A.

Perfect for resource management and issue tracking, good for project managers to find out where the team is spending maximum time and helps in bandwidth allocation, understanding team velocity.

DC

Debodirno C.

Pros

One of the best things I personally love about it is CI/CD. I will definitely encourage you to use it regardless of how you are working - as a team or an individual.

MM

Mayank M.

Incredibly intuitive, great features, great network effects, great education available, user friendly.

RL

Runbo L.

It's so important knowing what's going on and these notifications are perfect. It's really secure and the code review process is seamless with GitHub.

TS

Tori S.

Cons

It has limited number of software integrations. Error notifications can be annoying sometimes.

NG

Nitesh G.

If you accidentally click on the wrong name, the submitter gets a notification when it is assigned, and then another notification when you fix this by assigning it to the correct name.

MS

Mary S.

Sometimes Jira does not work for some time and that makes it hard to track work. It has server problems often.

Jenil D.

Cons

The only downside I found in git was that it had two levels of dependency support, the first two of which were very strict and the third one was very vague: most people are unaware of it.

FO

Fabricio O.

Github downtime is always a pain to developers. A bad merge is very difficult to revert.

Abhishek A.

It can be somewhat overwhelming and intimidating when you start using it. It appears much more difficult than it actually is.

Easy to use task tracker for software developers

Reviewed a year ago

Overall Jira has been a game changer. It allows our team to see exactly who is doing what and it makes it 100 times easier to track our progress.

Pros

Jira is such an simple and intuitive task tracker for software developers and product managers. What I love is its ability to organise tasks into stories. It makes it so much easy for our to team understand exactly what step we're on and how far away we are from completing a feature.

Cons

I wish there was an integration with GitHub were the tasks can be directly linked to the GitHub repository that I am working on.

JIRA review

Reviewed 10 months ago

I've MS planner, GitHub Project Boards, even MS Planner and if you combine all the features of those... You'll have JIRA.

Pros

JIRA is a full-featured Agile management solution. It supports almost all agile dev methods like kanban, scrum, etc.

Cons

I think if you nitpick, the price is the low point. It is more expensive than github and Ms Planner, but probably less than azure devops or trello.

Easy of use

Reviewed a year ago

It is part of may daily basis work tracking, the user experience in general is good, but I feel like some sections are not worth it to occupy that much space, like for example when looking at a particular ticket, the right section including Assignee, Reporter, etc, is very big and I like to focus more on the description of the ticket itself.

Pros

The integration with Github making it easy to track the associated Pull Requests a given Jira ticket has.

Cons

Tracking past tickets opened by myself is not so intuitive when I want to list them by Project, I basically would like to see the list of all my tickets with a different view like for example a table in full screen, and then sort, group or filter by Project.

Must need for any professional web company

Reviewed a year ago

Very useful in team project management in tracking progress work. You'll only be able to get the most usefulness out of Jira if you know how to use the results it provides.

Pros

The integrations from Jira with Github allow us to easily track what pull requests are related to a ticket.

Cons

The new UX enhancements have made it a bit difficult to use. There are somethings that you would think Jira would be able to do that it can't do.

A goto product for bug tracking in your companY

Reviewed a year ago

Worked with other bug tracking tools in several companies and nothing matches the experience of using Jira. Very straightforward and less time spent to update bugs/ features on Jira and easy to migrate from traditional to agile planning.

Pros

The ability to integrate with other development tools like github, vscode, codecollaborator etc Easy to share and create queries on dashboard.

Cons

lacks text editor feature while writing a comment or description. The code palette could do better text display formatting. Also, need more text formatting options to display highlighted words or specific sentences when quoted

One of the best DevOps tools

Reviewed 10 months ago

I used it in all companies i've worked in the past five years.

Pros

It's flexible to use with Scrum, KanBan, DevOps and offer integration with Slack, BitBucket, GitHub and more services to agile context.

Cons

The user interface is outdated and pages have a big delay to charge. The desktop app is simple and don't have many functions as the site.
