I'm working on a global project that is delivering an application to multiple countries (not all at the same time) so require Release backlogs per country and have multiple scrum teams working accross each of the releases.
Based on this, I'm trying to assess how best to setup JIRA under the following scenario points:
I am thinking that JIRA Portfolio is going to be an absolute necessity in order to manage this, but I would welcome any feedback that anyone has on structuring large complex projects with multiple releases across multiple scrum teams.
By way of background, we are assessing JIRA after using RTC for a number of years, where setting up hierarchies such as this are possible.
You will probably want to look at filters for this.
You could create a custom field for Country and show this on the backlog by configuring the board and its card layout.
You could create boards for each country and the filter for these boards would only show stories for that country.
You could also create boards for each scrum team that will combine all stories across countries that are allocated to that team.
Portfolio for JIRA might also help here. I don't really know how acceptance criteria could be managed.
I recommend taking a look at our Structure plugin (disclosure: I work for the company that develops it).
From your description of the task in hand, I can venture that Structure could help in the following ways:
Sorry if that sounded too much like a sales pitch. I hope it makes sense (it's less complicated than I make it sound) and meets your needs in some way. Feel free to drop me a line on email@example.com if you'd like to discuss in more detail.
