Hi, I'm Leo Díaz, from DEISER (Solution and Marketplace Partner). I want to share which project properties useful for tracking projects in Jira. If you think some of them are not needed, or others are missing, I would love to read your comments!
What is a Jira project property?
Jira incorporates some properties at the project level that, although they aren't intended for monitoring, serve to catalog projects and provide automation of management actions at issue-level (for example, the automatic assignment to the project leader) part of the project details. Other types of properties can be added through the API. To do this, you have to know how to Develop. This can be useful for apps intended to store data, although not so much to monitor projects.
What are the fields to track projects in Jira?
The fields to track projects in Jira are the ones Profields offers, and still, the answer to this question is not definitive, given there are more fields to monitor projects within Profields and your needs, of course.
As we already have located what fields in Jira will lead us to achieve an optimal project monitoring; now, we're going through each of the ten (10) fields Profields predetermined offers. These fields will help you focus on the mere activity of tracking Jira projects and spend less time in the configuration process.
If you didn't know about the possibility of having properties or fields at the project level, the ones I just showed will grant the ease to track your projects in Jira effectively.
These project properties are found by default when access Profields 8, which allows you to spend less time configuring, and more time monitoring projects in Jira.
Over time you may need other fields or values, and one of the advantages of Profields and Jira is their flexibility to provide this and decide which fields to use at any time. If you want to know more, in this document, you will find a complete guide on how to design your Profields layout with the project fields you need.
