JIRA Image / Worklflow / Setup Diagram

I have 'happily' been left with the task of explaining JIRA to a large audience and unfortunately I am not the most technically minded individual. I was wondering if there was a good diagram that explained how Screen Schemes / Issue Types / Workflows etc all fit together. I have been trying to build one but it's beyond my skillset :)

Any help is much appreciated

Have you tried Google? Just kidding, that's what helped me in the first place. It's a nice gliffiy diagram with links embedded:




A great reference for sure but If I were presenting I'd probably lead with something more... consumer oriented, like https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/What+is+Workflow, once people get that as the ground floor knowledge, hanging more on to it regarding IssueTypes (and workflow), projects (and workflow), referring to Schemes can be referred but not gone into in depth (unless you are unlucky enough to have an audience entirely of engineers, in which case that may not hold!)

Thanks heaps guys, this is perfect. I had to laugh about the Google comment, it was my first instinct and I googled all over. I searched JIRA documentation but couldn't figure out the right search terms - Workflow brings up Workflows, but not the config stuff. Anyway, thanks heaps!

I found some months ago a nice concept-overview from Communardo, an Atlassian Partner in Germany.


The included PDF is really amazing and shows the complexity of administrating Jira :-)
