Describe how Syracuse uses Atlassian tools in day-to-day work
We have three environments: Dev, Test, and Production.
Currently, the university uses Confluence (server) for documentation and collaboration. Confluence has about 180 total spaces using about 220,00 content pages. We also use Jira (server) for tracking issues and tickets across many departments on campus. We have a few plugins, which include: Team Calendars and Zen Foundation.
Jira currently has about 700,000 issues across 207 projects. We have a number of Jira plugins, which include: Email This Issue, ScriptRunner, Jira Agile, Tempo Timesheets, and a few from Bob Swift.
Both systems are available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and external non-university customers. This total user count is about 150,000. We are developing a roadmap to bring Service Desk into the campus in the future.
