How do you manage requirements with Jira?


Managing requirements is one of the key challenges and if managed properly, can be one of the biggest reason for success of a project/ product.

I would like to know how everyone here in the community manage requirements in their respective organisations?

Whether you work in a software development project which requires minimal features to manage requirements or you work in a complex project like defence/ aerospace/ hi-tech/ manufacturing where more features are required (like baselining) and compliance also comes into play, how do you manage your requirements in Jira?

Do you use any addon/ application available in the marketplace?

Hi Deepanshu,

Personally I like to start documenting requirements in a table in Confluence and then identifying corresponding tasks or stories that will also be in the table. Then you can select the text from the table and create Jira tickets (if done correctly, in just one click :-)). The best thing is that the status of the Jira tickets will show up in the Confluence table, giving you an idea on the progress for the requirements.

 Thanks for sharing.

When you create Jira issues from Confluence text, does the Jira issue has a pointer to the Confluence page from which it was created?

Yes, there is a section in the JIRA issue that contains references to other linked JIRA issues as well as the Confluence pages where the issue is mentioned.
