Book Description

Atlassian JIRA is an enterprise issue tracker system. One of its key strengths is its ability to adapt to the needs of the organization, ranging from building Atlassian application interfaces to providing a platform for add-ons to extend JIRA's capabilities.

JIRA Essentials, Third Edition provides a comprehensive explanation covering all major features of Atlassian JIRA, broken down and organized in logical order. The book starts by showing you how to set up your own JIRA instance before introducing you to key features and concepts such as business processes, workflows, e-mails, and notifications. This book will show you how to develop software more efficiently by planning, designing, and customizing your own JIRA implementation. At the end of each chapter, you will have the opportunity to put your newly acquired knowledge into practice by following a step-by-step, hands-on project that you will build throughout the book.
