JIRA Workflow in every corner of your business

Atlassian tools were famously built for development teams. The Atlassian approach to creating products has always begun with a desire to improve the lives of developers, testers and software development project managers. JIRA Workflow gives dev teams better ways to plan, collaborate, communicate and ultimately, deliver.

Over time – and sometimes hardly any time at all – tools like JIRA Workflow that were originally marketed to the development teams in organisations, have been adopted by other teams within businesses. Teams like Human Resources, for example.

Results? No kidding.

The anatomy of JIRA Workflow

Two key concepts for Workflow in JIRA are ‘status’ and ‘transition’. In fact they’re names for something you already understand intuitively.

  • A status is the state an issue is in at a particular point in a process or workflow. It might be in development, development complete, in review, closed, etc. Other words you might use for what JIRA calls an issue might be ‘task’ or ‘deliverable’. A workflow is, after all, a way of representing real work that’s on a journey to completion.
  • A transition is a link between two statuses, for example ‘send to review’, ‘start development’, etc.


Atlassian Stash or BitBucket for Git integration?

Atlassian Stash Bitbucket

It’s a common enough question and at Design Industries, we’ve heard it more than once. It goes something like this:

“We love working with Atlassian tools; JIRA is central to what we do here. Now I’m evaluating Git repository management options and looking at Atlassian’s Stash and BitBucket. Which one is right for my team?”

For starters, you’re not comparing apples with apples. While the two products share a range of features, they are not interchangeable.

Let’s take a look at what functionality they share, what makes each of them unique and what you should consider when making your choice.


Atlassian OnDemand or installed? What’s right for your organisation?

Atlassian Ondemand Vs Installed

If you’re just getting to know Atlassian tools and want to see how they can change the way you develop and release products, Atlassian OnDemand is a great way to start. No special setup required, easy to configure options for what you use and what you don’t – and all at a very affordable price.

But the cloud hosted OnDemand is not the only option available. You can opt to install Atlassian products on your own servers – and if you’re set up to do that, there can be benefits in speed, storage and other options.
