JIRA Project Management

JIRA is one of the most popular project management tools on the market. And though it was originally designed as an agile methodology tool for software developers, people who do all kinds of work use JIRA today.

According to Atlassian, Jira is used for issue tracking and project management by over 170,000 customers in 190 countries. Some of the organizations that have used Jira at some point in time for bug-tracking and project management include Fedora Commons,Hibernate,and the Apache Software Foundation, which uses both Jira and Bugzilla. Jira includes tools allowing migration from competitor Bugzilla.

Jira contains four packages

  • Jira Core is intended as generic project management
  • Jira Software includes the base software, including agile project management features (previously a separate product: Jira Agile)
  • Jira Service Desk is intended for use by IT or business service desks
  • Jira Ops is intended as incident management


Jira is written in Java and uses the Pico inversion of control container, Apache OFBiz entity engine, and WebWork 1 technology stack. For remote procedure calls (RPC), Jira supports REST, SOAP, and XML-RPC. Jira integrates with source control programs such as Clearcase, Concurrent Versions System (CVS), Git, Mercurial, Perforce,Subversion,and Team Foundation Server. It ships with various translations including English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

Jira supports the Networked Help Desk API for sharing customer support tickets with other issue tracking systems.
