Working in a project

A project in Jira Core is a collection of issues. Your team could use a project to coordinate the development of a product, track a project, manage a help desk, and more, depending on your requirements. A project can also be configured and customized to suit the needs of you and your team. 

This section of the documentation covers working in a project that's already been set up for you.
