About our help resources

Atlassian Support 

Our support team handles support requests that are raised in our support system. You need to log in using your Atlassian account before you can raise support requests. 

For information on our general support policies, including support availability, SLAs, bugfixes, and more, see Atlassian Support Offerings. Note, you'll find anything security-related at Security @ Atlassian.

Atlassian Community 

Atlassian Community is our official application forum. Atlassian staff and Atlassian users contribute questions and answers to this site.

You may be able to find an answer immediately on Atlassian Community, instead of having to raise a support request. This is also your best avenue for help if:

  • you are using an unsupported Jira instance or an unsupported Jira platform,  
  • you are trying to perform an unsupported operation, or 
  • you are developing an plugin for Jira Software.

Jira Software knowledge base 

If there are known issues with a version after it has been released, the problems will be documented as articles in our knowledge base

Atlassian issue tracker 

Our official issue tracker records our backlog of bugs, suggestions, and other changes. This is open for the public to see. If you log in with your Atlassian account, you will be able to create issues, comment on issues, vote on issues, watch issues, and more.

Tip: Before you create an issue, search the existing issues to see if a similar issue has already been created.
