Downloading JIRA

If you have not done so already the latest version of JIRA can always be downloaded here. There are three separate downloads for Windows, Mac and Linux users.


The best way to install JIRA is to follow the install guide. You can also watch our installer videos for Windows and Mac.

Setting Up

You may wish to start by viewing the Add Project video(.mov file) to get an idea on where to start. The next step would be the JIRA Quick Start Guide. It contains information on how to add users, customise workflow, custom field/screen configurations and more.

For more detailed information you can refer to the Administration Guide, User Guide and the 101 Guide.

Migrating Issues From Other Systems

When migrating from other issue trackers or systems, you may wish to take your data with you. Depending on what issue tracker you are migrating from, you are recommended to use one of the methods listed here to import data into JIRA.

Video Demonstrations

We also have some short video tutorials which you can watch. Each file is a .mov file which can be played in Quicktime (free).
