"Scheme" concept in JIRA


I'm configuring a new project in JIRA

I understand the concepts:

- Issue
- Workflow
- Screen
- Field

But I get lost with "scheme" concept. There are Issue/Workflow/Screen/Field schemes, and I don't know what exactly they are, and which function they do.

I don't know why I have to configure them and in which order.

Anybody can help me?

Hello Alexey,


I was looking for a diagram like that that is more worth than a thousand words.

I guess I can't ignore schemes. They are obligatory, ¿right?

I will read carefully the diagram for better understanding.

Many thanks!

You are most welcome!


The figure is very helpful. However, I'd like to know the order I should follow to configure my project properly.

¿Should I start defining Screen Schemes? ¿Fields?


¿Is there a guide on this?


Many thanks in advance!

It actually does not matter from which scheme to begin. You can begin with any scheme you like :)

Ok. But apart from schemes, should I start definig screens, then schemes and workflows in that order.


I mean, looking at the diagram, which is the right order, vertically and horizontally.
