What is an issue?

Different organizations use JIRA applications to track different kinds of issues, which can represent anything from a software bug, a project task, to a leave request form.

In JIRA Core, an issue is essentially a packet of work. It could be a small task like "Remember to order pizza for charity night", or a large chunk of hard work like "Build bridging wall between house and garage"! It all depends on your project, and how you and your team decide to break down your work into issues.

An issue is broken down into several key areas. Here's an example of an issue to build a wall, and we've pointed out the key areas for you.
