Overview of this book

Agile methodologies like Scrum focus on customer values in an incremental way. Regular planning, tracking, reporting, and improving can become equally challenging from a project management perspective. GreenHopper is a tooling support for JIRA that offers easy adoption of agile practices through rich interfaces for effective team collaboration and project management. Agile Project Management with GreenHopper 6 Blueprints is a step-by-step guide that teaches you how to manage agile projects using the GreenHopper tooling system. With easy adoption using pre-sets for Scrum & Kanban, the rich interface focuses on the work at hand, increasing team productivity. Executing sprints, tracking sprints, and reporting on agile projects has never been so easy. The integration with different development environments helps teams to focus on collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. This book covers agile project management concepts using GreenHopper. You will learn about backlog management for your agile team, how to create projects and boards for your agile team, and how to create new backlog items, prioritize items, estimate backlog items, create sprints, and update technical task status and report on the same. You will learn everything you need to know about managing an agile project using GreenHopper and how to achieve the best value for your team.

Updating an issue status on the task board

Each column on the task board represents a single or multiple status. GreenHopper allows drag-and-drop functionality to update issue status. Based on your workflow selection, you can move an issue around different statuses on the task board.

As in the preceding example, transition between different statuses is possible. You can mark an issue from the Verify state to the To Do state with a possible status option of Open or Reopened.

While drag-and-drop in case of possibility of multiple statuses for a column, you can select to one of the available statuses. The color visualization of different issue statuses while dragging makes it much easier to update the status on the task board.

As shown in following screenshot, you can move this particular issue either to an Open state or a Reopened state based on your requirements:

You can also update an issue status in Jira view and the status will automatically be updated on the task board.
