How do I create a RAID log within Jira? Do I need a parallel active sprint? If so, how can that be done? Thanks in advance!

Hi @Sharon Kaufman

There's no standard method of creating a RAID log - although there are apps to track Risks, such as Risk Register - you can find more on the Atlassian Marketplace.

You could create your own view also if you prefer - but there are lots of options. For example:

Visualising Risks:

  • Create an issue type "RAID" and have a custom field decipher what type it is
  • Create four issue types - Risk, Action, Issue and Dependency
  • Create Risk & Issue as issue types, track Actions as Tasks (to fix risks) and Dependencies through linked issues


  • Create these in a separate, central Jira project - or directly in each project
  • Link these to other issues using linked issues
  • Make these sub-task issue types and make them direct children of any issue type
  • Track these across their own board - or make them part of the main board (eg. use card colours to mark where a story has at least one open risk)
  • Visualise these in the RAID matrix using a Confluence Page and Issue Filters

^ Lots of options here, it just depends on what your team needs.

If some of the above appeals to you and you want more specific ideas, let me know :)


Thanks for mentioning our app, Stephen!

@Sharon Kaufman , while not a full RAID solution, hundreds of major companies are using Risk Register as a simple, usable, and cost-effective tool to manage their risks. If you want to check it out and need some help, feel free to contact us:

Hi @Sharon Kaufman !


For RAID implementation I would also go in depth with some risk apps. Important is traceability, overview and ease of use. For better overview just go through and
