I'm new in JIRA environnements and I would like to manage our inventory with one of this JIRA or Confluence. Anyone now how can I do it? Is there an add-on for that? What's the cost?
Thank you for your help
I've not seen a proper "how to" on using Jira as an inventory system, but the usual starting point is to decide exactly what you want to track, and map that on to an issue.
I've used it a few times to track "assets", the usual one being servers. Each server is a single issue, usually with the host name as the summary. Information such as which test environment it's in, cpu, memory, datacentre, owner(s) and so-on are logged as fields. Upgrades and moves are logged as subtasks. The workflow is simplified down to "requested -> active -> decommissioned"
Deployments of software are logged separately and linked to the servers.
In one particularly advanced setup, we wrote a field that was a multi-select list populated directly from the list of servers.
There are loads of ways of doing some form of inventory management, but the first thing is always to define your data set - you might decide Jira isn't the place to do it.
You probably don't need an addon for it. Creating custom issuetype, workflows, screens etc should cover most of it. It is difficult to walk you through everything but your JIRA admin will probably know about this already.
Nic basicaly gave you the first few steps, but if you need help doing this you can request it from an Atlassian Expert :
I've already got quiet some experience with customizing Jira to track all kind of different things, I'm sure there are other experts who would be able to help you too.
Do you have more detail on what you want to manage in this inventory.
Some of the table grid editor customers are using the add-on exactly for asset management, tracking inventory changes with 'transaction issues',
If you want, I can show you how it works.
