Project Creation Process

Markos Stefanou March 8, 2018

I was asked to describe to the upper management why it takes so long to create a new project.

(Took me a couple of days to deliver my last project- had to mess with groovy scripts)


The answer I think that I will provide them is that I have to carefully go through the following steps:
-Selecting project name, key, project leader
-setting/selecting up issue types
-setting up issue type scheme
-setting up screens (create/edit/resolve etc)
-setting up workflows per issue type
-setting up workflow scheme
-setting up Custom Fields
-tying up Custom Fields with Screens
-setting up Field Configuration
-Setting up Custom Field Configuration
-Setting up User Roles (creating users if needed)
-Adjusting Permission Schemes
-Adjusting workflows based on screens and project roles
-Internal testing
-Error checking
-Open Testing
-Bug fixing
-Dashboard / Board creation
-Filter generation
-Dashboard Setup
-Board Setup

What am I missing / What could I add?
What would you answer if you were in my shoes?

I had a hard time explaining that you can't duplicate a project in Jira as if it was a template ~

My answer would be a lot shorter:

Your users are not using standards.  They are all asking for different setups and configurations away from the standards.  If they had a proper set of standards, then project creation would be:

  • Admin creates project, using shared standard schemes or the default templates - Name, Key and Leader.
  • Project Lead adds users, and components if needed

er, that's it.
