I know I’m not the only Jira Admin to inherit a messy configuration. The goal of the "Jira Admin Mistakes" presentation is to keep others out of what I call the “Jira swamp.” Or, if you’re already in it, help dig you out. This session is different – it’s about strategy. It’s recommendations from years of cleaning up horrible Jira configurations! It’s about what you should do, what you shouldn’t do, and why. Hear the mistakes I made as a Jira administrator and real examples of problems to avoid. Would you rather your application be an organized, tidy, and trimmed garden or a foggy, contaminated, overgrown swamp?
