Using the classic Scrum and Kanban projects? You're in the right place!

Using an Agility project/featured project as part of the new Jira Software? Check out these pages instead.

If you're unsure, check your project menu. If it has the Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're on an Agility project (aka featured project) and this page isn't for you.

If you're a team member working with Jira Software, you're in the right place! These pages will be useful to you if you're a developer, designer, QA expert, technical writer, or anyone else that uses (but does not configure) Jira Software. The topics in this chapter will help you use Jira Software to manage your work.

Where do I start?

  • If this is the first time you're using Jira Software, check out I work in a software team before you start reading other topics.
  • If you're already familiar with Jira Software, use the search box below to find the topic you need.

Search the topics in 'Working as a team member in an agile project':

The topics in this chapter cover the activities that you will need to do at any given time when you start using Jira Software.

Note: You will be working with boards in an agile project, and it may be worth knowing how to use the project sidebar in Jira Software. See Using the project sidebar for more information.

Searching for issues

While you're doing development work in Jira Software, there will come a time when you'll have to search for issues. The issue you're currently working on may be related to an issue your team worked on before, and you'll want to find that issue. There are many ways for you to search for issues in Jira Software.
