Share your experiences with JIRA Federation

Stefan Broda Atlassian Team Nov 08, 2012

Thousands of Atlassian customers run more than one JIRA instance in their organization. This is one of the reasons why in the JIRA State of the Union 2012, Federation was mentioned as a key part of the JIRA product strategy!

In line with that announcement, we have released the Federating JIRA Enterprise Guide to centralize best practices in administering, managing and running JIRA federations.

Do you run multiple JIRAs in your organization?

Which reasons to federate were most relevant to you?

How do you connect them? Application links? Any custom interfaces you developed?

Looking forward to comments, shared best practices and also questions!

We have an internal and external Jira.

One for employees and one for partners.

The partners could be devs or customers

We currently have no connection but need it!

Fedreation,

Issue linking and common dashboarding is great but what we want to see is

  1. Issue searching (JQL) - Searching issues from the comfort of my exising instance
  2. Issue creation - creating issues in the other system

Is there any possibility of this?

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem so, as of Jira 8.4.

We are federting for perfmance reasons and feel that it is an incredibly lack luster solution.

It seems like an "Unlimited" license should cover functionality up to and including a Single monolithic Jira instnace.

Hi, unfortunately I don't have access to the mentioned link @Stefan Broda  :(

Can you or anyone from Atlassian please review the permissions on the page?
