I am business analyst but never worked with Agile methodology , Jira tools or any other . I had only worked with those project which were already design but now i want to learn something new in Jira software .How can I learn? How to use ?I have not studied Java ,.net ,Mysql and SDLC .
I am Electronics and Communication Engineer but worked with IT company as Busuness Analyst post.
You don't need to know about software development to understand Agile (though SDLC is a good primer). The Atlassian website is a great resource, I would recommend it even if this wasn't a Jira forum. I have come from software development and I have still found the Agile articles a great reference.
Check out https://www.atlassian.com/agile and https://www.atlassian.com/agile/project-management and then move on to more specific Scrum and Kanban 'flavours', e.g.
Atlassian has some free trainings in the Atlassian University.
you can check this one to start using Jira. The training starts from scratch, very good if you are a newbye in Atlassian tools:
You may start a trial Jira for free and test in for 30 days. Most functionality is covered by wizards and you will be able to form your opinion with no difficulties.
I think the best option for you is Jira cloud. When you get used to it you may have Jira server on your hardware. The benefit is that you can change virtually anything because Jira is an open source software.
Another thing to keep in mind is that while Jira has out of the box support for an Agile process you do not need to use it that way.
We have a number of Jira Projects as just a task management tool.
In a couple cases the projects are managed in a traditional waterfall method. Mainly because those projects are not writing code. They are for the deployment, configuration, maintenance and periodic upgrading of third party software.
The key is finding the management method that works for a particular effort and then using Jira in a way that supports that process.
When it comes to Agile you are talking about a wide variety of different methodologies that can be used in various combinations to improve the adaptability and responsiveness of a groups software development process. basically there is no one "Agile Method".
I would start with the original "Agile Manifesto" from 2001, to get an understanding of the original vision.
Next look through sites like the Agile Alliance and the educational resources that others have already mentioned.
If you are going to be in a project management type of role you may want to even check out the PMI Agile certification stuff,
