Environment: JIRA v7, Confluence, Bitbucket, Crucible
NEEDS TO RECREATE: On a self hosted legacy site, we have a checklist form of software Compliancy questions that need to be filled out by our developers before every delivery. The current legacy questionnaire form has Pass/Fail options for each Compliancy checklist item as well as spaces for related comments. The form's results are linked to each individual software name + delivery version (we have JIRA Issues for tracking each software delivery in the new system) and kept for historical purposes.
SO, have any of you created anything like this before or even if not, how would you suggest to do it in these Atlassian tools?
Looks like you want to have a predictable and repeatable process of release and delivery. Before I answer a few questions which will help me understand better your use case.
Overall I am an expert in Release and compliance processes and have experience managing such in JIRA.
This legacy requirement may actually be deprecated, but I'll still answer in case there are similar future requirements:
We have the Xray plugin that we will start configuring soon for test cases, and likely this is how any future checklists like this will be run as test sets will be run in regression with each delivery. I'm not sure how Xray helps with that if that keeps track of status too ... we will see. So really my question now is what is the best process to repeat some procedure on JIRA that documents past procedure results and doesn't require cloning to create the next set to repeat?
OK, so here what I think will work for you. Besides the ability to have repeatable checklist process it will give you other release management benefits.
I suggest you use our Program and Release Management tool - Cycle Control, you can create a release for each of yours product deliveries and create a check-list for a given date prior to the official release date. For the checklist you can create multiple check-list tasks which one of it with its own owner.
If not all checklist tasks are completed at the due-date, the tool will change the status of the delivery to red. You can also define metrics for the delivery as well as create reports and notifications. Publish the status on Confluence and a lot more features which are very useful if you like to the repeatable process.
If this sounds interesting I will be happy to continue the discussion on online meeting. Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can try using Smart Checklist Jira plugin:
It provides you with exactly what you were looking for:
If you have any additional questions about the plugin, please let me know!
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 ...
