Hi
Could anyone give me info on Jira insights asset management. I am interested to find out where Jira server should be located. I have multiple disconnected sites so I am unclear how the client connects back to the server and if I need to deploy beacon type servers to each site thanks

Hi,

I have been working as a Product Manager for a number of years now, and i've tried and use all of the below:

- Trello (probably the most user-friendly of them all, it is not essentially project management software for a software company)
- Jira (i find this clunky)
- Asana (Same as Trello but not as user friendly

My typical weekly tasks, with a team of 8:

- Report bugs: these are added to the Development team's 'weekly sprint list' in Trello, or added to an Urgent list if urgent
- New Feature: these are planned and added to the Development team's 'weekly sprint list' in Trello
- Ad Hoc Tasks: some of our sales teams will request various product requests that we need our Development team to look into, however we don't really add these to Trello, we discuss them... as they don't require development just yet.

So, as you can see we plan weekly sprints, but the 'Ad Hoc Tasks' can linger on there is no really process for the developers to work on, as they could be 2 months of discussions before anything happens so they don't fall into the weekly sprink tasks

QUESTIONS

01 - what Project Management software would you recommend based on the above

02 - how would you recommend approaching and managing the Ad Hoc Tasks

Thank you in advance for your help.

Since setting up jira with IIS using SSL JIRA can take up to five minutes to login. I cannot seem to find the issue. Once logged in everything works well and there are no delays.

Hi,

I have a JIRA instance that experienced problems recently and required a reinstall. Everything seems to be ok but jpeg images that were previously uploaded to projects are no longer showing. This is because images were previously on a different drive to JIRA installation. Now that I am on version 7 of JIRA I cannot change this location or it is not recommended. Is there any impact to simply copying the images to the new JIRA location in c:\porgram files? thanks

Hi

Sometimes when receiving an important mail, that might be relevant to a planner Project, it would be Nice to be able to add informaion directly to planner or make a New planner case.

Also a planner desktop app With Notifications would be awesome. Is there a desktop app for Microsoft Planner? Please share the link

I have a very big production server in a VM with lots of web pages and SQL database code.

I have 3 options:

1) DEV server with VisualSVN and Jira for bug tracking
PROD server

When code is tested on DEV, it is deployed to PROD.  


2) PROD / DEV server is the same machine with VisualSVN and Jira for bug tracking
When code is tested on DEV, it is deployed to PROD.

3) DEV server with VisualSVN
PROD server
JIRA server (hosted version for bug tracking)

When code is tested on DEV, it is deployed to PROD.  

-> Which option would you choose and why?

-> How do you track bugs and how do developers communicate in joint projects / code?

I have a very big production server in a VM with lots of web pages and SQL database code.

I want to set up VisualSVN so developers can work on the web and database code.

I have 2 options:
1) copy the production VM with all code, name this DEV-VM, and set up SVN on DEV VM
2) setup SVN on production VM so I don't have duplicate VMs that take up A LOT of space

Which option would you choose and why?

JIRA: Removing old sprints from migrated ticket to resolve a velocity chart issue
Ran into an interesting problem in JIRA that I managed to solve this morning. Figured it might help out others, so here goes!

It turns out that if you had a ticket that was part of a Sprint in one Project, but then either move it to another project or clone it, it'll still retain a history of the prior closed sprints it was in. At first, that doesn't seem like a big deal, but it means that the Project it's now part of will have messed up Velocity Charts, because it'll start including the Sprints from the other Project. And there's no obvious way to remove the old Sprints from the ticket (editing the ticket only lets you change the current Sprint assignment, not clear out prior ones.) No good!

Fortunately, the Bulk Edit feature provides a workaround and will let you clear out the old Sprint associations, which will then fix the Velocity Charts. And here's how to do it:
  1. Run a search that'll return the ticket you need to remove the sprints from.
  2. Choose the "Bulk Change" option from the "three-dot menu" in the upper right.
  3. Check only the ticket you want to change. Hit Next button.
  4. Choose "Edit Issues". Hit Next button.
  5. Check the "Change Sprint" option. Leave it blank. Hit Next button.
  6. Review the Confirmation screen. Hit Confirm button.
  7. Hit Acknowledge button when the progress meter is done.

For reference:

One word of caution: be careful when doing this! Bulk Change is quite powerful and if you're not watching out, you could accidentally change a lot more than what you really want to. I imagine this is why Bulk Change has so many steps to it... Sometimes I'm glad when a task is a bit difficult and cumbersome to do :-)

Dears,

I am about to embark in the management of my company using JIRA tools.
I have been using trello, Smartsheets,Axosoft , Todoist.Assembla and toodledo.
So I do have some experience with Agile/Kanban.
I have set up JIRA yet I am faced with some "organizational dilemma".
My setup is as follows :
we are 4Developers.
2 fully dedicated to developing
1-Developing + managing the company (tasks/prioirities)
1 Developing + help desk

We are now managing around 30 Customers and we also have our own project (a New software to be launched in 2019)
I got JIRA software + confluence +Service Desk +Tempo Planner.
My question is how to configure JIRA.
1-Do I create a project per customer ? and if yes how to aggregate them later on ?
2-How to link the Service Desk to my project (s) - If I allow 1 customer to post on JIRA Desk shouldn't that ticket be also showing in the project

As you see my problems are related to "business" configuration. And I am expecting to need some help with this.
Where can I get that help ? Coz reading the JIRA help won't be enough. It helps me understand how the tool work , but not what is the best way to configure it !
Thanks

Hello

I'm reading a lot about devops and the new culture behind it.

I m yet puzzled at few issues that I would appreciate some experienced in that field to help me out with.

1-most of the posts and documents I am reading are for a big part emphasizing on testing and how to conduct all types of testings. Is that correct? I mean is really testing the cornerstone of the devops?
2-In my company we are using a web development platform called alphaanywhere and planning to also use instantdeveloper who both are RAD tools.
All the tools that are being advocated by for devops seem to me to work ONLY under Java python rubis and the likes..
I hear a lot of Jenkins / bamboo / git / chef / puppet...
It seems to me that all those tools do not work under the platforms I am using. (Alphaanywhere and instantdeveloper).
I'm a right? If yes then Devops can not be applied in my company? It doesn't make sense to me.
I'm certainly missing something... Please help me understand...

Thanks

Hi Experts

Does any one know a good and inexpensive program for project management, where I can:

- specify milestones  by project.
- for each milestone, specify tasks.
- for each task, specify hours, % completed, cost, assigned to, add Rich Text notes and attachments.

- combine tasks that I will do this week from multiple projects (Color coded), with running totals of time and cost.


 - for each project, milestone see a summary

Thank you

A quantity surveyor recieves a .mpp file from the architect.

QS is on Project 2016
Architect is on 2013

The file opens but the dates are completely wrong.

Calendar options and date formats look to be set the same on both systems.

Attached files show how it should look, and how it looks on QS PC.

If QS saves the project and sends it back, the wrong dates now show if the architect opens it.

What could the problem be?

Thanks

I am rewriting a MS project audit program for MS project 2016.  I have to have both projects with the same custom view.  I use
    OrganizerMoveItem Type:=0, FileName:=pName, ToFileName:=mName, Name:="Audit1"
        ViewApply Name:="&Audit1"
where the first project is made available the custom view.  If I stop it there and look at the project, it has the view.  I repeat the process for the second project and it has the audit1 view, but the first project reverts back to the view it had upon opening.

How can I get both projects to have the same view?

Hi,

Tried finding a link for MS Project 2016 trial but could not get. I teach MS Project, but my students find it difficult to learn it because they cannot purchase it. I purchased MS Project 2007 earlier to teach, but that is old now.

Is there any way I can purchase a cheap student edition type version for myself, and can somehow give some link to my students (who change every year) for learning MS Project but economically?

I am losing data after a baselining.  A week ago I baselined two projects.  Today, I am seeing that the Baseline Set Date (from the Project Ribbon, Set Baseline) is now reading as if I never baselined, and all tasks in the project are reading 0 days duration in the Baseline Duration field.  The Baseline Start, Baseline Finish and Baseline Work Fields are all behaving as they should.

Any ideas?  I have already checked the usual offenders and am using the correct earned value method.
