Rachel's Presentation: Best Practices for Managing and Maintaining Your Jira Application
You know if you don’t maintain your Jira application that it can quickly grow out of control. But where do you start? How do you make small improvements without impacting daily business? What should you do if your application is already a bit of a mess? In this presentation, we’ll address:
how to set standards so you don’t have more schemes to maintain than necessary,
how to clean up schemes and custom fields when you have too many,
how to archive old projects and unneeded issues,
and how to track changes and customization requests so you have a record and an audit trail.
Peter's Presentation: The Future of Jira Administration with Power Admin: Configure & optimize Jira faster with full understanding of usage & change impact
Power Admin - an advanced Jira tool enables administrators to configure and optimize their Jira more efficiently, quickly and confidently. Use cases:
Understanding dependencies and usage of configuration elements prevents unnecessary impact when implementing change requests
Optimizing configuration by deleting, merging or renaming custom fields and other objects by understanding if there were used and how often
Increase productivity when configuring JIRA using Power Admin advanced UI
