I am looking at improving the way that we do thing on the PM front - we are already using JIRA and confluence, and am looking at what else we can utilise and lay over the top, from a resourcing, planning and risk and reporting perspective.
Ive previously used MS Project Server (back in about 2008) which worked ok, but things have moved on. Do I need to look at Server for centralised resource management, and if so, how does that work with jira? I dont want to be importing/exporting...I want a real time api/plug in to what ever we use. The aim is to see what everyone is working on at any 1 time, and when they become free, so that we can plan in MSP and execute in Jira.
You may be able to get away with juts a shared resource pool file: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Create-and-share-a-resource-pool-64a2416e-b811-4ddf-b039-e0347e233581?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1
MS Project Server will be a comprehensive, but much more expensive solution.
As for Ceptrah Bridge (I can see it in the tag), you can set up synchronisation as required, but you will still need to press the Synchronise button from time to time and import new issues. That can be done on a schedule using the command-line utility that comes with the package: http://www.ceptah.com/Bridge/Help/scr/Command_line_mode.htm
