Hello Jira Admins,
I need to create 3 different Jira projects that use "issues" differently.
Project 1 - uses issues to track new user stories/enhancement requests
Project 2 - uses issues to track bugs
Project 3 - uses issues to track new features
Leadership will want to see trends across all 3 projects. Would I be creating a monster if I were to just create a parent project and link all 3 with automation and make a (Kanban/Scrum) board?
Thank you in advance, Olga
My first question would be why would you need three separate projects? If these issues are somehow related it seems to me that a single project would be the way to go. But then again I don’t pretend to understand your full requirements and needs. With that said you certainly could have separate projects and you certainly can link issues but I’m not sure it’s necessary here.
Hi Jack, and thank you for such a quick reply!
Why 3 separate projects - b/c my groups works on 3 different software products. Leadership wants to see the full picture, while individual product teams need their own projects to manage the work. Trouble is, they want to use Jira in different ways and I'm worried that I am going to create a monster if I give in to their whims.
Judging from your answer, maybe it won't be so bad if were to do this?
Hi Olga, well that certainly makes sense. And reporting on all three projects at a higher level for the executive should not be a problem. In fact what I would do is create a dashboard for these individuals and give them a nice pretty set of charts and high-level perspective. If you are not familiar with dashboards here is some documentation that might be helpful - what-is-a-jira-dashboard . There are a number of related articles that might be of use in that link.
