About Jira

With Jira, there's no shortage of ways to stay in the loop. Whether you prefer to receive updates via email, chat, or by checking in on your mobile device, Jira has you covered. At your desk or on the go with the new mobile interface, Jira helps your team get the job done.

Issues are everywhere: Tasks, ideas, and requests are hiding in documents, people's heads, and deep in your inbox. Use Jira to capture and organize your team's issues, prioritize and take action on what's important, and stay up to date with what's going on around you. Jira makes all of this easy, so your team can spend less time managing the work and more time building great software.

Work the way you want: Your process is at the heart of everything you do. Don't shoehorn your team's work into the default workflow defined by your project tracker. Jira has workflows to match your existing processes, that you can easily adapt as your team evolves. Use the tool that fits your team, don't change your team to fit your tool.

Productive, powerful planning: Teams that need to be effective and efficient choose Jira to help them capture, assign, and prioritize their work. Ensure that everyone on your team knows exactly what needs to be done when, then watch the job get done flawlessly. And when you add the power of agile to Jira– with the Jira Agile add-on – you can even plan agile sprints!

Collaborate easily: On any team, it's important that people can easily share information and reach out for help when they need it. JIRA's simple, intuitive interface allows you to collaborate with teammates and get the job done more efficiently. If you think that's awesome, you'll love it even more when you combine JIRA's @mentions and assignment features with the power of Confluence and HipChat.

Visibility at the speed of light: Watch the issues that are most important to you, monitor activity streams, and share information with powerful dashboards, wallboards, and more. With Jira, you'll always know what's going on.

Collect, service, and report: With Jira Service Desk, the Jira platform becomes a modern, flexible service desk experience that streamlines customer requests and boosts your IT team's efficiency.

Agile project management: These days, just keeping track of your work isn't enough – you've got to be agile. Jira Agile adds agile project management to the power of JIRA.

    Jira for bug tracking and project management

    I highly recommend Jira for a bug tracking tool and especially for Agile software teams. For us it has really made a difference in terms of: team collaboration, Agile methodology adoption, decreased time to market of new projects/new features and on the overall teams' spirit. We have seen a wide adoption for the other departments as well, non software development.


    We used several bug tracking tools in the past but Jira is by far the best one. What I like most:
    - user friendly interface, provides a nice user experience
    - Agile SCRUM/Kanban support out of the box
    - extremely configurable on almost everything
    - extendable through custom scripting, either built-in or via addons
    - very collaborative
    - there are thousands of addons in the marketplace; you can even write your own


    Being so flexible to be configured, the learning curve for admins is a little steep.
    The price is based on the number of users and if you experience wide user adoption in a big company, you end up in paying more for upgrading to the next tier, than if you would pay for that tier first time.

    It is great! we use JIRA to manage projects (internal and external), customer services desk process, reporting, measure work efficiency, monitoring and work hour control.


    It is an outstanding platform easy to use, with a great UI design, and wide range of customization and con configuration.

    It has standard templates to manage projects according to current approach and new trends (Agile/scrum/PMI). It service desk offer everything you may need to control all of the process internal and external.

    It has a large number of app to aggregate, as well as REST full API, Webhooks, and the likes to extract data or make interfaces with company's systems.


    About the cloud service, is a litther pricy, and most of the time you need to contract (monthly fee) some apps to do basic things.

    On the other hand, support service has its opportunities. Response time is quite slow, and in some occasions -simply- not attended.

    More then you will ever need / Tool to handle thousands of problems one by one

    Reviewed on 21/05/2018



    The best feature of Jira is a huge number of integrations, massive amount of possibilities, statistics and tricks that you can you inside the platform.
    There is an integrated tracking, kanbans, lists, sorting direct contact with chat (stride) and feature to work with git right from every task or issue.

    * New UI

    Recently Jira got an update, a new chat (Stride, instead of Hipchat) and a new UI for the tasks. I can see that company goes in the right direction to adopt all of it's powers.


    Jira, being confusing at first hides a lot of it's features inside most of which you can change and adjust to your business needs. It is a great solution for a big corporation with dozens of departments, hundreds of employees and thousands of issues and tasks daily. However, in all other cases Jira can be a nightmare at this point.



    Out off all CRM platforms and tools to handle tasks and issues Jira is the slowest by far. Is it initial problem or has it appeared after adopting so many technologies under one roof - I can't be sure. But one thing is clear - Jira is awfully slow.

    *To many features

    Yes, it is a disadvantage when it comes to Jira. When a new customer comes to Jira I believe, he is most definitely confused. Especially, if he/she tried ANYTHING else before. Of course, I see that company does a lot to make it easier and more comfortable, but as it is now, Jira is a terrible solution for fast adoption, scary for a small or middle sized team and most definitely not a great choice for personal use.

    Jira is Huge. If you are huge - great features, customizing, different apps and plugins will help you solve a lot with Jira. If you are just starting or don't have that many tasks and issues and people in your company - you should probable check other options.

    The best option available, and a great value

    Reviewed on 19/04/2021


    This software is so great, that you really don't need to train people on how to use it. Project managers will be familiar within a day, and users will understand it quickly because Atlassian put a lot of work into an intuitive user interface.

    This is the best option on the market if you want something that scales across your company without draining your energy. Not only will you run projects through here, but you can also setup all your standard business processes to run through here.

    Using the marketplace, there are some great extensions for Jira. We built our entire accounting team into Jira, and used it to know we were following through with our key daily, weekly, monthly processes. Using a scheduler plugin, we were able to create tasks, with subtasks, delegate them, follow up with progress, and print a custom summary report at month end outlining completion, completion date, user, and notes.


    You will likely want confluence or google sheets to keep overall big picture notes.

    Overall we switched to JIRA from ProdPad which opened up a whole new way of managing feature requests and gaining visibility into what is being worked on and bugs.


    The Kanban board, export features and workflows are all features which stand out to me from my experience with JIRA.


    There can be some confusion on finding settings within the admin section. So a bit of a learning curve to the software in my opinion.
