JIRA – Agile Project

Agile methodology for software development has gained immense popularity in the recent years.

Agile Projects follow an incremental approach to development of the requirements.

The highlights of an Agile/Scrum Project are:

  1. The requirements are created/agreed upon and the grouped together into a Product Backlog
  2. The requirements (User stories) are ranked in the order of priority and business importance
  3. Once ranked, the stories are assigned developmental cycles (Sprints) that last for approx. 4-6 weeks.
  4. The detailed documentation is avoided. Instead, a scrum board is maintained that will show the status and progress.

JIRA successfully supports all the activities listed above for projects following an Agile Methodology. In this article, we will see how.

Note – Firstly, you will need JIRA Agile add-on if you have not gotten it already.

JIRA Tutorial 5

JIRA Administration: 

We are going to learn all about JIRA administration today. This is a unique opportunity to learn the admin aspects of a Project/Incident/Test Management tool.

This is the 5th tutorial in our JIRA learning series. Check all the tutorials in this series on this JIRA Tutorials page.

Not all of them are as effective (and simple) and as accessible from the UI as it is for JIRA. So, as always, concepts are more important than the tool specific details – look out for the operations and their importance- that will help you to estimate what you can expect from the “Admin” module of any tool.

JIRA User Module – Conclusion

We have seen the different kinds of issues and how to create them in our previous JIRA Tutorials. This is a next JIRA tutorial in this series where we will learn how to use them, the workflow progress and the reporting feature of JIRA.

The issue once created can be accessed by searching the ID, browsing the “Issues” menu item or going to the project details and checking the issues tab.

When you access an issue and click on its link, the details will be displayed. All the actions that can be performed on the particular issue are available on the header of an issue details screen:

JIRA – Tutorial 3

Written by

A sub-task is nothing but a division of a parent issue (task) into chunks of work that can be assigned and tracked individually.

Example 1: A QA related example could be of the task of Test documentation. Test documentation by itself is an activity that might take a week to finish.  Say, it involves the following aspects: Test plan documentation which takes 2 days. Test case documentation – 2 days, Test plan review – ½ day and Test case review – 1 day.  Also assume that there are 2 resources.

In this case we can create a JIRA issue of the type task for “Test documentation” and have the following four sub tasks under it:

  1. Test plan documentation – assigned to resource 1
  2. Test case documentation – assigned to resource 2
  3. Test plan review- assigned to resource 2
  4. Test case review- assigned to resource 1

By doing so, it is easier to have a better insight into the progress task wise and resource wise by breaking a sizeable parent task into sub-tasks.

Working with JIRA issues

JIRA – we are in the midst of self-learning this tool. In the last JIRA tutorial, we talked about the underlying JIRA process – the Incident Management and a few high-level details of the tool itself.

Today we move on to yet another interesting topic – How are issues handled in JIRA?

Before we get into more details let us reiterate what an issue is:

An issue is anything that you would track to completion. Some examples specific to QA can be – a document to be created, a document to be reviewed, a bug or an environmental issue.
