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.

Accessing the Jira Work Management Administration components

Although we will go into the administration details more fully Chapter 7, Managing Fields, Screens, and Issue Layouts, and Chapter 8, Configuring Permissions and Simple Administration, at this point, it is helpful to be able to find simple administration information. However, to do that, you need to know where to look and what to look for.

To gain access to administrative tools and information, you must be a project administrator. This means that the user must have an administrator project role and that role should be linked to the administer projects permission in the permission scheme attached to the project. We will discuss this in more detail in Chapter 8, Configuring Permissions and Simple Administration. As a side note, just because the user is a Jira administrator or system administrator, that does not automatically give the user access to administer projects.
