A workflow is a set of statuses and transitions that an issue goes through during its lifecycle. Jira Software makes it easy to create and edit workflows that fit your team's needs. Click here for more information on creating and editing workflows.

Sample workflow.

Development panel

Jira Software can be connected to a range of development tools, such as repository managers, code review applications, and build and deployment managers. These tools can help you keep your project tracking in sync with your development work. Click here for more information on integrating development tools.

Email other Jira users a link to an issue either by sharing the issue with them, or by mentioning them in an issue's Description or  Comment field. See Editing and collaborating on issues for more information on notifications in Jira Software.

Sharing an issue with other users.

Custom cards

Customize issue cards for your boards to bring the right information to your team's attention at a glance. You can change the card colors to help people quickly identify cards on your board as being of a particular issue type, priority, assignee, or any JQL that you want. Click here for more information on custom cards.    

Issue cards on the board with an extra red stripe.

Confluence integration

You can link your Jira Software instance to a Confluence instance to create and link Confluence pages to your sprints and epics. For example, you can link your sprint meeting notes in Confluence directly to the relevant sprint. This makes it easy for your team to quickly share information about the sprint. Click on sprints or epics for more information on linking your project to Confluence. 

Linked pages dialog.


A wallboard runs on a wall display and is used to monitor vital data about a project's progress. You can use wallboards to share information with your team during stand-ups. You can also add gadgets to a wallboard – make sure to add gadgets that are useful to your team, such as a gadget that displays the status of a sprint, including issue status, time remaining, and build status. Click here for more information on creating wallboards and setting up other gadgets for Jira Software.
