Product Details

What is Jira Software?

Jira Software is a project management tool software used by agile teams and supports any agile methodology, be it scrum, kanban, or a team's own unique flavor. From agile boards to reports, users can plan, track, and manage agile software development projects. And since not every team works the same way, Jira Software allows teams to customize workflows, permissions, and schemes to match the unique needs of each team.


Jira templates also support use cases in enterprise marketing management, and projects to support operations, design HR, and enterprise marketing management.


With Jira Software, teams are able to:

  • Track versions, features, and progress at a glance
  • Re-prioritize user stories and bugs
  • Estimate stories, adjust sprint scope, check velocity, and re-prioritize issues
  • Estimate, track and report on story points; become more accurate
  • Report on agile metrics to provide real-time, actionable data on team efficiency, quality, and overall performance
  • Integrate with all the tools their dev team is already using, from the rest of the Atlassian suite (Bitbucket, Bamboo, Fisheye, and Crucible) to other popular developer tools on-premise or cloud (e.g., GitHub and Jenkins).
  • Provide greater flexibility to curate which teams have access to which information with sprint and project-level permissions
  • Flexibly tailor Jira tasks and their workflows to a specific team's use case
  • Extend Jira with over 1,800 apps from the Atlassian Marketplace to fit any capability not provided by default

They are very responsive to any blocker I have, and resolution comes in real-time. In an application like Jira, customer support is quite crucial for better customer experience. One cannot wait if the application is having trouble as people start using it from the beginning of the development. All the project planning, backlog creation, etc. happens in the beginning.

The biggest plus that Jira offers is the way it allows you to customize everything. I love the mobile app too, it allows you to keep track even if you are away from desktop. You can easily integrate other software (Slack, GitHub) with Jira and search within it easily.

Support is fair for a service of this size with consistently earnest responses over the whole nearly 10y of our use of Jira, an impressive streak of non-variance. Our requests are namely reporting frontend bugs and quirks which are often resolved over time, usually a feature is deployed within a year of our suggesting, likely not as a direct result thereof but shows investment in the product, and bugs are sooner, within weeks which is fair given the immense global user base. We're pleased with the essentially included-in-price support.

Overall, there were very few problems and the response was quick and to the point. The issues were solved by the support team in the estimated timelines without any delays. The service desk team looked into the ticket logged and followed up for any details they require to investigate the issue to provide the solution.

The organization is very responsive to customer inquiries and provides standard templates to initiate set up. I would suggest working closely with their team to align your business, product management, and R&D processes. Once set up, the software runs effectively without much need for support calls or on-site visits.

I have not personally tried to get support from JIRA. I have seen that their user forums seems to be well updated and populated. This would allow for users to get self help from the system when you need it. Most of the time my needs are met by an in house super person.

I haven't had to interact with their support team, outside of maybe reading some online help or blog articles. So I can't really comment on their support team, but the fact that I haven't needed to use them says quite a lot about the quality and ease of use of this system.

Jira's support provides the most appropriate answers to all the requirements and concerns that our team needed. In addition, there is enough information for the proper management of this excellent project management tool.

Atlassian's support is lake any other support of a big company, slow and demanding. Initial consultant assigned to look at your issue doesn't have too much knowledge and he/she may waste your time until it is escalated and people with more knowledge about the system will take a look at the problem and provide a fix/workaround.

I have not had a chance to contact JIRA's customer support. It does offer extensive documentation, although it often feels too technical for me. There is also a JIRA training app that lets you take little lessons and quizzes on different areas (e.g., JIRA basics, agile). I did find it a helpful way to teach myself.

JIRA gives us easy access to experts in the fields we need who have knowledge of JIRA. All of our vendors, as well as most of our internal hires, have already been exposed to JIRA, making onboarding swift and clean. We support ourselves, so we do not have a lot of interactions with JIRA as a troubleshooting service, but they have always been there when we did need them. It’s just easy to implement option in a crowded space of project management software.

Our JIRA support is handled internally by members of our Product Support team. It is not supported by a 3rd party. Our internal support will always sent out notifications for downtime which is usually done on the weekend unless it is required to fix a bug/issue that is affecting the entire company. Downtime is typically 3-4 hours and then once the maintenance is complete, another broadcast email is sent out informing the user community that the system is now available for use.

Whenever I contact the support staff at JIRA I find the interaction to be typical to support interactions. Quite a few of the staff are very friendly and always seem to want to help. I have given them a couple tough situations that they've had to take back but all-in-all it seems like they try very hard to get to the root of the problem in a timely manner.
