In this series of articles I will show you how the same task can be solved in many different ways in Atlassian Jira Server/Data Center.
I will solve this task with different skillsets and understanding of Atlassian Jira. I will start with the lowest quality solution and move to higher quality solutions.
After reading this series of articles you will be able to understand what is the quality of solutions you have in your Atlassian Jira.
I will not produce the complete code of the task for each solution. My goal is to show techniques which can be used to configure Atlassian Jira and let you understand the quality of each of the techniques.
We need to create an Approval process for our company. It will be a very simple process but enough to create all types of solutions.
Here is the workflow for our issues:
Here is the business process:
How would I approach this task if I knew nothing about Atlassian Jira?
If we want to set the manager of the reporter as the approver of an issue automatically, then we need a lookup table where we would find information about the manager for each user. How to have this lookup table? Of course, we can create a table in our Jira database. And I will create one. I use Postgres for my Jira instance that is why I will take my favourite GUI for managing Postgres database and create a table:
I provided user_managers as the name of the table and added two columns: user and manager.
Now we need to let our lookup user to edit this table. We can not grant access to the database to the lookup user. We need somehow to create a UI in Jira to let the lookup user edit this table.
How to do that?
