Hi @Ania Bodeit 

I am an Atlassian consultant and also the product owner for Jira Snapshots for Confluence .

I work extensively with organisations who manage requirements and traceability in Jira and Conflunece. As @Jarosław Solecki said, Jira- out of the box- is not ready for it. One approach would be to use the app he mentioned. Another approach involves leveraging more of what Jira provides (customer issue types and links) and a set of Apps from the marketplace.
Here is a link to few articles from me on how to achieve it: RadBee blog: requirements management in Jira & Confluence ,
And here is a webinar on the topic: How to manage traceability in Jira & Confluence 


I hope this helps,


Hi Rina,

Thanks.  I will definitely check out the webinar topic (as well as the other things you mention).  Thank you,

Hi @Ania Bodeit ,

there are a few problems you will face managing Requirements in Jira:
- Baselines (currently only workaround available for that)
- Structuring requirements

- Traceability 

- Reporting

- Approval Process (if you work in some regulated industry)

You can check plugins for requirements that are already solving some of that problems. 
I can suggest checking Requirements and Test Management for Jira which is developed by my team. 

In case of any questions let me know. 

Best regards, 

Hi Jarek,

Thanks heaps.  That's a great answer - helps me a lot.

Thank you,
