Using JIRA

Overview JIRA

What is a Board ?

A board displays issues from one or more projects, giving you a flexible way of viewing, managing, and reporting on work in progress. There are two types of boards in Jira Software:

  • Scrum board: For teams that plan their work in sprints. Includes a backlog.
  • Kanban board: For teams that focus on managing and constraining their work-in-progress. Includes the option of a Kanban backlog.

What is a Epic ?

An epic captures a large body of work. It is essentially a large user story that can be broken down into a number of smaller stories. It may take several sprints to complete an epic.

What is a Sprint ?

A sprint — also known as an iteration — is a short (ideally two to four week) period in which the development team implements and delivers a discrete product increment, e.g. a working milestone version.
