i am always interestet in opportunitys to shorten our QA-Work. We are devloping mobile Apps, so its important to have a powerfull QA. For the developers it is important to have all the informations of the device with it the bug was found. Because of that our QA-Team is typing the Mobile Informations Bug per Bug in the Jira-Tickets. This is time-consuming ...
2 Weeks ago i saw the Atlassian Roadtrip (30 Minutes). At the end they showed a Codescanner and Barcodes, which are printed on the back of the device. Is there a way to combine the Barcodes with Jira .. so i could scan the device and all the device-informations are imported to the Jira-Ticket.

Does anyone have experiences with it?

Your main problem here is getting Jira to react to the scanner.
The system I wrote didn't need a direct interface - you scanned stuff and it created a Jira issue from the data the scanner driver provided. The main problem was the proprietary and bloody awful software for the scanner, we had to bludgeon that into writing a text file which our program polled for, read and converted into a Jira SOAP call (I'd do it over REST nowadays).
We didnt need anything that dynamic - the users scanned objects in and then went into Jira to add stuff to the records it was creating/updating. They had to search for it (which wasn't bad when you've got a saved filter for "scanned by handset X in the last 20 minutes). If you're expecting a "scan things and it appears on the Jira screen next to you", you'll need to be a bit more clever.
We're looking for participants for a workshop at Atlassian! We need Jira admins who have interesting custom workflows, issue views, or boards. Think you have a story to sha...
