JIRA USER

2019-04-12

We migrated from Redmine which has very limited issue tracking functionality.

Pros

First and foremost is project team can track issues over the whole development life cycle. Best for Agile based software development. Supports Scrum, Kanban etc for workflow. Easy to use interface for creating user stories/epic etc.

Cons

There's some learning curve for a novice user.

A complete project management tool

2019-04-03

I have been using JIRA from last years , I have also used other project management tools like REDMINE, but I would prefer JIRA now, there is lot of functions which I like in JIRA, as I have mentioned in pros, dashboard view, customization of tickets, progress tracking .

Pros

1. Dashboard view of project lifetime, its progress, parent tickets 2. Ability to customize fields in Jira tickets 3. Graphical view of goals achieved and remaining

Cons

Sometimes downtime irks me, I get emails that JIRA will be down for this timeperiod which I beleive should be taken care of.

Expensive but extremely effective for project management

2019-01-11

In the end, I should probably add that I've been using all kinds of bug tracking systems for about 15 years (starting with ancient tools like redmine going through PivotalTracker or VersionOne or JIRA) and almost all of them were either missing features that I deemed important or "spartan" usage/layouts that constraint the usage.

Pros

- Overviews & quick access to information - Possibility to integrate with most commonly used systems (it integrates with pretty much all mainstream tools, nut just the ones from Atlassian) - you can integrate it even with continuous integration tools or test management tools (e.g. TestRails) - Security control (everything is fine grained, tools to configure fine-grain access are already integrated - Comes out of the box with the most common work scenarios (client onside/offsite, development only/development + product management, etc) - Reporting (easy to extract the things that matter (whether this is worked hours or development velocity) - Version management (easy to manage what features are grouped in a release, or what fixtures were done for which version) - Workflows can be customized to match just about any real-life usage scenario - Allows for both on-premises (self-hosted) installation and cloud usage. - Configurable dashboards

Cons

- Pricing - it is prohibitively expensive for small companies, although they are making steps to minimize this with the new pricing models (e.g.: a few years ago they started allowing up to 5 accounts per project and unlimited projects, for a fixed yearly fee).
