In this chapter, we'll understand how to get start started with using Jira for your project. We'll start by spending time on planning our Jira installation by asking ourselves relevant questions. We'll set up a Jira cloud instance and a project of the Jira Core type. We'll, of course, start by understanding how to work on a project as a user and we'll cover various aspects of the project interface.
We'll also learn how a new project is created by a Jira Administrator and, as a project manager, how you can ensure that the scheme used in the project is correct and relevant for your requirements. We'll spend some time understanding how to create an issue, work on it, and close it.
Topics covered in this chapter include the following:
- Getting started with Jira
- Using Jira Core for business teams
