If I am doing some customizations in JIRA, like testing a new plugin or adding a new scheme, as an administrator and I dont want to make the system live to my end users before I test it thoroughly, what is the best practice that I should follow?
I cannot take the system down every time I try something new in JIRA. Please comment. Thanks in advance.
I would recommend you follow the same procedures you would use if you lost your primary system and needed to recover. Restore DB and home directory from backups into a new install. Apply your other customizations however those are documented.
GINT - Groovy Integration Test Framework has some JIRA specific enablers. You can use it to test against a test or production instance. You can do better testing against a test instance as Thomas suggest since you can easily create and delete issues, progress issues, and make configuration changes you would not want to do on a production instance. In a production environment, you need some test projects that can be created and deleted. You should also be careful about suppressing notifications for any testing - How to limit notifications for automation actions
