Next-gen also for business projects or only for software projects?

Will Jira Next-gen also be available for business projects or is this only intended for software projects?

Hi @Sascha ,

I have forwarded your question to the Next-Gen team. However, since they are in a different time-zone, I can take couple of days before I will get an answer. Please bear with me.



6 months later... 😂. Any news?

Hi @Matias Arranz Garcia ,

Apologies for late reply, I couldn't find this thread anymore.

At the time, I had asked the next-gen team about their plans for the future and, even if they were discussing the matter, there was nothing concrete about next-gen business projects (nothing related on the official road-map for the close future).

This is also because the whole idea of next-gen projects is to have simplified, easy to setup (and not so customizable) kind of projects available for non-advanced users that want to start quickly, without having to configure too many things.

This is therefore mostly needed for Jira Software and Service Desk projects that are the ones that, in their classic version, might require a lot of time to setup. While, usually, business projects are already simple enough by default. See below page for details:


Once this has been said, I have opened a feature request for this on your behalf:

Also, @Sascha @Matias Arranz Garcia ,

You may want to get in touch with the Next-Gen PM and share your feedback with him. See below article for the details:

Have a nice weekend.

Hey y’all. I’m curious to understand — what’s stopping your business teams from creating a Next-gen software project?

The next-gen projects are great. Huge improvement. But what it's missing is a way to create an structured workflow the way is has been implemented in the next-gen service desk. It makes sense to stay away from workflows in software projects but it's necessary in a business project when you don't want issues transitioning freely to any state. 

One alternative could be using a Service Desk next-gen project without customers but one drawback I can think of is pricing.

Let me know if I'm missing something.
