Hi Joy! Hmm that's a very vast topic to cover. However, in a nutshell, JIRA can be used for bug, issue tracking and project management.

I assume you would be more interested in using JIRA for managing projects and this would be a good starting point: https://confluence.atlassian.com/get-started-with-jira-software/get-started-with-jira-software-937185118.html

For timeboxed product development projects, scrum boards are recommended since you can manage your backlog and plan sprints by moving the prioritized tickets into the spring backlog.

For support projects where you have a team of SMEs involved in resolving and fixing issues KANBAN would be the the recommended option.

Hope this helps!
