I'm starting out with Jira, and I'll be collecting issues by repository from GitHub. How can I view all projects in Jira, rather than one at a time? This is for Project Management purposes, so I can organise a team across several projects.
OK, some basics first;
A project is a collection of issues (see here for more: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira064/what-is-a-project-720416135.html) that can be based on applications, teams, system component groups, etc.
A Team will use a "Board" to see the status of the issues assigned to the team - Kanban and/or Sprint - Agile. The board is based on the filter that is applied to determine what issues should be displayed. (see here for more info: https://confluence.atlassian.com/agile/jira-agile-user-s-guide/creating-a-board and https://confluence.atlassian.com/agile/jira-agile-user-s-guide/configuring-a-board)
Soooo.... when you create your board (Kanban or AGILE) you can include as many "Projects" as you want in your filter. If necessary, you might create a "Management Board" that includes all your projects while the teams use boards with smaller scopes. If you go with a "Management Board" you might want to use Quick filters to manipulate how much info you see.
Hope this helps! Oh, and "Welcome aboard"!
