Configuring projects

JIRA projects are a way of grouping issues together and a way of applying the same sets of configurations to issues. These configurations, such as workflow, issue types and screens, can be changed on a per project basis, so that each project can have a different set of configurations. Setting up a JIRA project effectively will enable your users to manage and complete their work quicker and more efficiently. This section of the documentation will take you through all the technical aspects of setting up your project, and give you information and tips on how to get the most out of your project.
