If you are a Jira system administrator, you have a number of additional support tools available. These include the ability to raise a support request from within your Jira applications, create zip files of key Jira application information, and more. For details, see the Administering Jira Applications documentation.

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 the Atlassian Community, instead of having to raise a support request. This is also your best avenue for help if:

  • you are using an unsupported instance or an unsupported platform,  
  • you are trying to perform an unsupported operation, or 
  • you are developing an app for Jira Service Management.

You can also have a look at the most popular Jira Service Management answers and the most popular Jira answers.
