Jira Work Management for Business Teams

By: John Funk

Overview of this book

Jira Work Management (JWM) is the newest project management tool from Atlassian, replacing Atlassian's previous product, Jira Core Cloud. While Jira Software focuses on development groups, JWM is specifically targeted toward business teams in your organization, such as human resources, accounting, legal, and marketing, enabling these functional groups to manage and enhance their work, as well as stay connected with their company's developers and other technical groups. This book helps you to explore Jira project templates and work creation and guides you in modifying a board, workflow, and associated schemes. Jira Work Management for Business Teams takes a hands-on approach to JWM implementation and associated processes that will help you get up and running with Jira and make you productive in no time. As you explore the toolset, you'll find out how to create reports, forms, and dashboards. The book also shows you how to manage screens, field layouts, and administer your JWM projects effectively. Finally, you'll get to grips with the basics of creating automation rules and the most popular use cases. By the end of this Jira book, you'll be able to build and manage your own Jira Work Management projects and make basic project-related adjustments to achieve optimal productivity.

Jira administrators can make changes to shared schemes (workflows, screens, and issue types), create custom fields, edit the permission scheme, change ownership of shared dashboards and filters, and other system-level functions.

For JWM, project administrators can make changes to non-shared objects and project roles on the project, but not the permission scheme used by the project. Figure 8.26 shows a very brief table of permissions available for Jira administrators and project administrators. In a nutshell, Jira administrators can make changes globally within your Jira instance and project administrators can only make changes on the projects where they have the project administrator...
