Did you ever wonder how to share components in Jira projects? By default, components are attributed to a single project. But for a lot of us, that is often a significant limitation.
We use many components across projects. For example, a Login APIs component is affecting both Mobile and Web app projects.
One of the solutions is to create a component with the same name in all the projects you need. But if you need to do any changes to them it becomes too much manual effort. And let’s not forget, manual tasks are always error-prone.
That’s why we created Octo - Component Management app for Jira that allows you to:
See and manage all the components from one place
The app gives you an overview of all components in your Jira instance. You can filter by projects to get a view you need quickly and also access details of the component where you find the issue progress insights.
Share one component between projects
You can merge your existing components together or create a new one to share across multiple projects. You will be able to see them in the app but also the native Jira Components screen at a project level. And of course, all changes are synchronized.
Octo provides the ability to create Components for next-gen projects and link issues to them as you're used to in Classic projects.
