Iot Product management in JIRA

Wondering if anyone has used JIRA asset to manage their IoT products.  What I'm really wondering is how customizable is JIRA asset-can I add different types of assets (like Mobile apps as opposed to Software) and different customizable fields for the assets.  Thanks!

Hi Cassandra,

Are you looking for a solution on Jira Cloud or Jira Server?

What do you mean by "Jira Asset"? Do you want to manage the assets within Jira? An easy approach would be to treat your assets like other tasks - simply as Jira issues. Then you can add custom fields to the assets and define a workflow for them.

Best regards,

I've played with the idea of using Jira to manage state of things having nothing at all to do with projects, tasks, and team collaboration.

You could use an issue to manage IOT devices, if that's what you're asking.  For example, you could create a "Switch" issue type with a simple ON-OFF workflow.  When an ON or OFF transition is triggered, you fire a REST message to the appropriate webhook on the physical device via scriptrunner.

Imagine automating these.  Using settings in subissues to automate environmental settings of temperature, humidity, etc.  Of being able to use Jira standard tooling to automate these.  And best of all, you already have a well-defined dashboard and way to search amidst tons and tons of these switches and settings and who knows what.

The possibilities are endless ...

It breaks my heart sometimes to see Jira, an incredibly powerful tool conceptually, limited to only one possible niche where it could excel at so many other things with only changes in end-user configurations.  Even in the limited Cloud version!
