Multi project management with JIRA

Hi guys,

I'm searching for a function or plugin for multi project management with JIRA. Is it possible at all?

Thanks and regards

Hi guys,

multi project management can be done in JIRA basically via five different ways:

* Using GreenHopper Scrum Board: (my favorite)
- Here you can use a single scrum board to show all issues of all your projects including the different project versions and the versions's progress.
- The sprints may be used for the planning. Many of my customers are happy with sprints like: "KW 1-2", "KW-2-3", "February", "March", "Q2", "Q3", "Q4".
- The quick-filters can be used to generate several views.

* Using GreenHopper Kanban Board:
- You can use a Kanban-Board to show all issues with the issuetype "Project". The columns represent the project's status.

* Structure Plugin:
- The structure plugin can be used for multi project management as described here:

* Gantt-Chart Plugins (
- These plugins use dates of jira issues and versions as well es issue links to create a gantt-chart.
- Unfortunately my experience with these plugins is a lack of usability.

* Confluence TeamCalendar
- You can use Confluence TeamCalendar to show JIRA dates from issues and versions based on a jira filter.
- i.e. you can build a jira filter for all issues of the type project to show their start and end date in TeamCalendar.
- alternativly or in addition you can show the version dates of selected jira projects.

I believe Portfolio solves this ask.

Could you please elaborate? JIRA is a project management tool and it supports multiple projects. What exactly are you looking for?

Are you looking to administer multiple projects in JIRA at the same time? I don't think this is possible.

That's what I'm searching for, a possibility to manage many projects at the same time, in "1" view. There should be an overwiev:

- all ressources I have

- all ressources in process

- alert system for a disadvantage allocation

You are looking for Project Management Software, not Issue Tracking. I think there are some plugins trying to accomplish that in some degree, but they are different, you know ...

I searched yet but could not find an adequate. Did I overlook anyone or di you have a tip?

I think the issue is not the number of projects but resource management if you have shared resources.

Epicflow plugin helps with that in a multi-project environment.
