  • Where are you in the process of adopting Jira? Only considering it or already implemented and looking for some extension?

  • Do you have any funny stories connected to Jira?

Thank you!

I started using Jira and Confluence in 2004 or 2005, don't remember for sure, on a consulting gig.  Since then I have been using it ever since wherever I go to stay organized and get work done.  Can't wait to answer questions, provide insights and learn from others.

First time I heard about JIRA was around 2016 (I know a bit late to the party). We have implemented JIRA Data Center and use it along with many other tools in our company. I am here to learn new things from the community.

I am fairly new to Jira, since I'm using it for about 2-3 years now. I heard it through my manager at that time, you told me to use it in order to keep track of our ongoing project offers. That was enough for me, since a whole new world opened up!

I'm in the process of giving the ACP-120 exams which will be a nice addition next to my ACP-620 certification! :D

My Jira situation started 3 years ago and is now fully implemented and always in search of extensions. We live, sleep and breathe Jira but there's always something else to learn so any topic is a good topic to me 😃

Hi everyone!

I have been using Jira since 2009, started out using it as part of the Dragon Slayer quest. Starting in 2012 I led a migration from IBM Rational tools to Jira and ever since then I have been working with Jira and other Atlassian tools.

Hi @Hana Kučerová nice initiative with this post.

  • When did you first time find out about Jira?

>> In 2016 I heard about Jira and Atlassian Confluence.

  • Where are you in the process of adopting Jira? Only considering it or already implemented and looking for some extension?

>> Started as an end user with very very limited access, now working at the "Jira project permissions" level. And our organizations are fully scaled with the Jira utilization.

  • Which topics about Jira are you interested the most and what would you help you?

>> This one area is driving me nuts and crazy till date, the "JQL". So, I'm interested to be skilled up in that topic. Going through self learnings is not helping me and hence I'm looking at instructor lead courses.

  • Do you have any funny stories connected to Jira?

Not at the moment.

Hello Everyone,

The very first time I started using Jira was in the year 2017. The first impression was "What is this", "What are the workflows", "What is issue types", "Where are different types of issue types" etc... lol... 

Initially, it took some time to understand the application being the Jira Administrator later it was easy to use. Thanks to Atlassian for creating such a good application and helpful & useful for various different teams. 


Thanks

Hello Community!

I have been using Jira for the past 8 years when we started off with Product development. Our founder was very keen in using the best in class tools and it was really cheap  :)  We were less than 10 users way back then.. 

Workflow & Screen configurations were the ones which took time to get a grasp.. but once you mastered it ... it was easy to customize any new Jira Projects.. Right now we use the entire suite of Atlassian products for our CI & CD process...

Hey, this is a fantastic thread.

Recently, I've been raising several questions regarding my Jira learning path. I want to reinforce my technical knowledge regarding this fantastic tool, and this comes great (I know Jira from a "business point of view"). Here I go:

  • When did you first time find out about Jira?
    I got to know Jira (and the whole Atlassian universe) when I started working in the marketing area for this Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner. I still am. 

  • Where are you in the process of adopting Jira?
    It's my day-to-day, given I administrate our marketing tasks and projects with it, but I also want to get deeper into my technical knowledge and configuration aspects.

  • Which topics about Jira are you interested in the most, and what would you help you with?
    As stated before, I'm interested in the configuration./administration aspects of the tool.

  • Do you have any funny stories connected to Jira?
    I don't think so, sorry :(

Hello! I'm not new to Jira but I'm still introducing myself :-)

Atlassian and its third party app developers are continuously adding features so some part of Jira is always new for anyone. Even with years of experience.

I discovered Jira 8 years ago on my first job as a QA engineer. 2 years later I became an Atlassian consultant and still glad I did.

Welcome everyone!

Not necessarily new to Jira because I know the tool for a long time and have worked with it before, but im I'm currently learning for administering projects and later on administering a Jira site.

I have the feeling that I'm at the beginning of exploring Jira and all it's features, advantages and particularities.

Can't wait to get to know Jira in every detail!

Hello everyone,

I am Fadoua I started supporting Atlassian Applications 7 years ago. When I first started I hated Jira so much because every time I made a change, users started reporting an issue with their workflow or permissions. To make the story short every time I could avoid working on a Jira Ticket reported to the Help Desk I did. Well today I can tell you that my favourite application is Jira (I feel there is still a lot to learn about it and achieve with it).

I really enjoy helping people who struggle and need guidance step by step. It doesn't;t bother me at all.

Feel free to reach out to me if needed.

Best,

Fadoua

My name if Fabian and started using jira since 2005 to track issues in our projects. In my current organization we have adopted Jira fully in a data center environment with 10K users.  We use it for agile/waterfall development, process management, service desk, inventory control (insight) and customized applications.

I'm relatively new to the community, but like many been using jira for "quite some time"... some vague time in the distant past that I can only vaguely remember. Funny stories not so much, but horror stories ... bombarding the email server type things. 🙄

while we have used JSM for 3 years now, we haven't done much with it beyond basic ticketing.  We use Jira software extensively, and have so for 8+ years, and will be looking into better usage of JSM.  Interesting to hear how other got some inital quick wins with JSM.
