Welcome Wednesday: Storytime - Preparing for vacation!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Around Christmas time (and I believe possibly in the spring), we built a story one line at a time with the next person adding an additional line building on the previous story that has been created so far. People seemed to enjoy that so I thought we’d do it again.

The ironic part of this is that I’m technically on vacation right now (I just never leave the community :wink:), but I thought we’d build a story about preparing to go on vacation. If you are like me, preparing to go on vacation is an event on it’s own.

Let’s get things started:

It’s Friday afternoon, and I have all of my Jira tickets closed (just pretend this is possible). I’m just about to logout for the day but then….

What happens next? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a great rest of the week!

The boss comes to my desk with an URGENT JIRA configuration request that absolutely MUST BE done before I leave for vacation.  The problem is...

... suddenly I hear nothing, I see nothing. What else do you think? About letting my boss ruin my moment? I am collecting good moments, not last-minute pain😊

It's too complex with many projects involved and many conditions... But I remember Atlassian community and university to the rescue...

... Suddenly, my empty Jira request queue started piling up with new issues from the Jira users, making me feel that my vacation planning is ruined.

steigt wieder in mir die alte Frage auf;

Sie drängt sich jäh in deinem Lebenslauf.

Mal naht sie leise, manchmal mit Gepoch.

Schiebst du sie weg, so plagt sie dich dann doch.

Es ist die Frage, die sich jedem Menschen stellt:

Wo geht es hin?

Worauf kommt`s an?

Was zählt? .....

... 

I take a deep breath and dive into the first request, hoping I can solve it quickly. As I work on it, I realize it's a familiar issue, something I've encountered before. My fingers dance across the keyboard, and I manage to resolve it faster than I expected.

Just as I'm about to mark it as "Done," another urgent issue arrives in the queue ...

... but inspiration hits me based on how the last issue was really something we encountered before. I quickly head over to Confluence and find the documentation on 75% of the tickets just assigned to me and quickly link the issues to tickets and re-assign them. But just as I am about to close my laptop for the last time I hear a series of pings coming from Slack...

...it's a post in the #atlassian-status thread and everyone is freaking out because Jira Cloud is down and no one can access Jira. Customers are going crazy and no one knows what to do. I think to myself...
