Jira software and it's interaction with other tools like Confluence, Crucible/FE, Jama, etc is excelent to build Requirements v/s Development, Test Traceability.

Pros

Jira software is very flexible and collaborates well with other tools used in our product management. Helping us to get the overall project management view sprint on sprint at both Scrum team level and project management teams level.

Cons

Some tools like XRay, etc are integrated inside Jira software instead of keeping it as separate server and forcing us to buy the add-on tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on our instance, as Test team size and development team size varies in any organization and simply doubles the number of users in a license cost even though same number of users using both Jira and Xray.

Easy to use, could use more straightforward analytics and Kanban features

Ease-of-use

Functionality

N/A
Pros

Jira is, more or less, a straightforward product. You can create tickets, move tickets across a Kanban board, and do a variety of things with tickets such as add comments, photos, link tickets to other tickets, change the "status" or "priority" of tickets, and so on.

Cons

It can be a bit clunky at times. I would like more detailed Lean and Kanban analytics such as, "What's my Average Time in Queue?", "What's my Average Cycle Time?" etc. Have a few other ideas but very related to Product Development Flow-type thinking, so perhaps not suitable for main product. Jira does a good job at presenting some of these things (e.g. burndown rate) but a more powerful analytics suite would improve the product greatly.

Overall pretty good

Pros

We use Jira to handle our bugs and it works pretty well, easy to use and no bugs detected so far. It's ok for our small 25 people team

Cons

UI could be more exciting, we're not aware of new features - there is no integration with Slack and reports are really not good and clear enough

JIRA allows you to edit tickets, stories and boards in such a way that you never have to worry about losing a single piece of information.
Its integration with BitBucket and Confluence is amazing.

Cons

JIRA can do so much for you, but it ends up being very complex because of it. When I make a new ticket in Kanban View, I need several more clicks to be able to move it from "Backlog" into "In Progress". In the same way it allows you to make tasks into sub-tasks of a larger story, but the option is hidden far away in the actions menu.

Our project included the creation of many digital 3D assets, and it was extremely easy for the team member to keep me up to date with the status of each task. This product made being a project manager a breeze.

Pros

Within a few minutes of testing this software I knew it would be the product our team would use. Even for those not familiar with Agile methodology, the Jira project site intuitively guides the manager through the process of planning a project. Users love dragging their tasks from Not Started to In Progress to Completed, and the burndown chart auto-generates to show if everyone is on track. I will definitely be using Jira for our next project.

Cons

While it was simple to create tasks, it was a bit difficult and time-consuming to update many tasks at once. There were bulk change tools, but there were harder to find and not as user-friendly.

Pros

I like how full-featured this software is, if you need to extend the functionality, there is a high chance someone has made an extension for it.

Cons

Sometimes the software (if you run it locally) fails and is difficult to fix (not a fan that it required Java to run as well.

Once you get the hang of it, it has some very useful functionality. We love using it to create sprints for our company. People that have had training on it, find it very helpful in keeping track of bugs and next steps. Helpful in prioritization.

Being able to track and follow bugs is the best part of the software. I can ask the developers when a ticket will be completed and see how long it has been open.

I like the ticketing system the best because you are able to track, comment and set the priority of a bug

Cons

I find that sometimes hard to find the functions you need and I am searching around to locate simple things. I also think that some of the words do describe buttons aren't correct and end up clicking on something that is not what I want.
