Does Jira support budgeting?

We are looking for a project management tool that provides for accompanying our issues with planned and actual budget. And we want to get reports on how good we performed in regard to time and budget.

We also want to have an initial workflow for the controlling department to evaluate and acknowledge/reject launching to develop on an issue.

Moreover, we have branches around the globe and we might want to have separate tenants.

Is this all possible with Jira?

I believe what your looking to do is supported by Portfolio. Here is a link to an overview - Portfolio. Otherwise there are add ons that manage budgets - Tempo comes to mind. 

Portfolio handles resourcing and planning but not quite the money behind them.

Tempo Books is probably closer to a budgetary tool, as it lets you put monetary costs on resources.

Thanks to both of you for your brilliant help! I'll have a look at Tempo Books then.

Hi, what tool are you using today for manage the budget? Thanks.

Also interested in this discussion?  Any success with Tempo Books?  Tried Portfolio - didn't really see anything in there for budget tracking... TIA

Tempo was a waste of time and resources...we are actively looking for a budget management solution now 

Nothing concrete yet. We have a tool called Smartsheets which is like Excel that allows the PMs to atleast pulls numbers for their reports to the Exec teams. My company may look into assigning a Dev resource to building an in house tool for this. All the alternative budgeting tools want you to have Jira in conjunction with some confusing website portal that requires immense amounts of configuration. 

This thread has tons of views, I think budgeting is the pain for Jira users. What about to do something more than the just in-house program? :)

Is it possible to integrate tempo with portfolio for jira?

for example synchronize teams and roles between the two add ons; 

You can to an extent but not for budgeting purposes. Portfolio is more about capacity/road map planning ...atleast from what I've seen in our instance; if you happen to come across this sort of use case definitely let me know! 

Hello, I can not find tempo books, only tempo budget. But to my understanding this only works together with the tempo PM suite.

We are looking for a budget planning tool that works together with Big Picture.

No budget planning tool means basically no use of jira in terms of project planning.

I would advise something like accello ...Tempo is one of the WORST vendors for Atlassian products Ive encountered. 

@Shawn: I understand your comment as to not use JIRA, but instead acello. We have several competitors of JIRA on our list we want to check. However we still want to learn if JIRA is able to perform reasonable enough in Project Management requirements.


Side note: Why is this question 'solved' ??? I do not see a solution in this thread.

I would like to be able to tracking spending related to  projects and annual renewals.  Perhaps confluence is a better option if it was just myself needing to view the information but i would like to also track spending related to helpdesk requests in Service Desk so the requester can see their receipts for the purchase being made for them in their portal.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
