Jira Core and BigPicture

1. Does anybody know any well-written article, guidelines or tutorial about Big Picture? I'm having troubles understanding some things in it.


2. If I start a task in Big Picture, it will not be shown in the section projects on Jira. Why is that?


3. What is the difference between Scope, Board and Roadmap? Of course, if there is a comprehensive guide on the Big Picture, please share it here.


Thanks in advance,

Hi Andrea,

I'm glad that you ask about that. We have our Wiki and I personally recommend starting from this page.

I also would like to invite you to one of the open webinars that take place every Wednesday at 6 PM CET (and every Friday at 1 PM CET). The webinars include a 1h product demo followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. You can join a webinar using one of the links available on this page (no registration required).
On the same page, you will find the video recording of a webinar. You can watch it and, if necessary, join just the Q&A session.

To be honest, I'm not sure if I understand your second question properly. A program in BigPicture is based on a JIRA project. You can either use an existing project or create a new JIRA project during BigPicture program creation (not available on JIRA Cloud).

Answering your second question, on our Wiki you cand find every module nicely explained.

Here are direct links to the modules that you are interested in:

I hope you find it useful as I did :)




I am watching it at the moment :)

I have a question - how do I create a board? I don't have anything when filling the part ''scope''.




Do you mean the 'Scope data' in Program Wizard?



This is a Jira Board and you can find a guide right here on the Atlassian Documentation.

Jira Board is not necessary for creating a program in BigPicture. You can build your program based on one of the following:

  • Jira Project
  • Filter
  • Jira Board

or if you don't want to use an existing program you can create a brand new Jira project along with your BigPicture program (on the server only).

You can find more about creating a new program in this article.

I hope that you find it useful.



Thank you so much! :)

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 ...
