Use case: After reading this brief tutorial, you will be able to access the configuration settings for your board, change or add administrators, and update basic board information.
Configuring different aspects of your board, such as columns, swimlanes, or quick filters, will help you to create a customized board layout and a successful workflow. Follow the sections below for some initial configuration settings.
Note: The board administrator is the user with permissions to change configuration settings. For any board, the default administrator is the board creator.
Jira provides the flexibility to use either a Kanban or Scrum agile workflow. This tutorial is specific to Classic projects for either board type. See “Kanban or Scrum?” below for a quick summary on the different Agile environments.
Kanban or Scrum?
Agile work environments rely on a set of principles to provide organization for product management and development. Two popular Agile workflow methods for software development are Kanban and Scrum. Jira inherently provides support for your board to be based on either method. The following table highlights some of the basic features of Kanban and Scrum:
|Philosophy||Change happens in fixed intervals.||Change happens continuously.|
|Metrics||Velocity.||Lead time and cycle time.|
|Release||At the end of each sprint.||Continuous.|
