We have a requirements document in Confluence that is in the early stages. Our users are looking for a good way to discuss proposed requirements. Using comments on the Confluence page isn't ideal because there's no link from the text down to the comment. We thought there might be a good way to use JIRA to help with this stage of development, but I'm having trouble coming up with a best practice for how to do that. There doesn't seem to be a requirements workflow available on the marketplace. I did stumble across something from zagile, but we use OnDemand, so that won't work for us. I'm looking for suggestions on what a workflow might look like for requirements discussion (i.e., what issue types, statusus, and transitions are good to have). Thanks!
I'm relatively new to the company, but I think in the past they've used a wiki page to document requirements, but that page was pretty much the result of several group discussions, so there wasn't a lot of documentation along the way to get to those requirements.
We ended up creating a table in our Confluence page that has a "notes" column. To keep discussion on a particular requirement from taking over the entire page, we hide the discussion in an expand macro that contains a bulleted list. Users can comment there, using @mentions to say who the comment came from. A user can "reply" to that comment by putting in a sub-bullet, or he or she can add a new comment on the same level as the first one. Our users responded to this pretty well, though it's a bit clunky.
