I am attempting to create an automation in Jira (Atlassian) service desk software.
Having created a front end form, with relevant fields and check box lists.
Which is working mostly as it should.
The automation creates and allocates the information correctly....
with the automation picks up all of the fields (check-boxes) selected and creates sub-tasks for all the check-box fields, however it does not differentiate between the ones that have been selected, and ignoring the ones that have not.

Therefore still presents all of the sub-tasks on the form (as tasks) - including as I say the ones that have not been selected.

As a total newbie to this I am sure it is in the if / then / else part of the automation....but am scratching my head wondering what I am not seeing.

Could be that I have to create some additional JQL statements to fulfil?
Not sure.
Still investigating

Any assistance or pointers gratefully received.

in our company (1000 - 10000 employee) we are going to establish a new department for software development so what are the best tools to:

1- manage software versions.
2- manage team tasks.
3- manage the development processes.
another question:

what are the usual processes for stakeholder requests and changes?

Be informed that we are using Microsoft technologies for software development.

Best regards.
I have an interesting request to build or advise on an expert system, now known more commonly as a KBS or Knowledge Based System.

The reason is that this team are encountering many examples of same or similar problems, where they spend a lot of time re-inventing similar solutions. Ideally, they need a database that can intelligently and [semi]automatically connect the dots between hundreds of similar problems and solutions; in other words, an inference engine connected to a database.

1. Search results need a trust raking for the likelihood of a correct solution.
2. New information (problems and solutions) must be easy for a technician to enter, and in a structured format.
3. Database must be both machine and human readable.
4. Must be OS agnostic (web based).

So far, I have found a lot of technical and conceptual papers on this subject, but I haven't found a ready to use application. :(
FYI, here is an interesting document from AAAI:

1. Can this be accomplished, as an add-on, with the tools we already own?
2. What KBS systems are available that are either open-source, free, or relatively inexpensive?

We currently use Confluence, Confluence Questions, Jira, Bitbucket, Freshworks Freshservice, and Slack. I have reviewed many of the plugins available and none seem to offer KBS-like functionality. :(

Google Search?
Search results seem to be help desk …

I am looking for a simple and user-friendly project management web application/site that help me manage my projects and tasks.

Please note that I have third parties involved in my projects and not all are internal staffs.

Anyone have experience of Jira Software vs Workfront for project management?
What can Jira do that Workfront can't?
Why one or the other?
If using both, how is the integration between the two (I see there is an integration toolkit to connect the two).

I run an app and web development agency. We always have approx 25-35 projects (websites or apps) on the go at any one time. We have been using a mixture of different tools to manage our client’s projects over the last few years.

We’ve trialled and tested several different tools and software to manage each project but always end up back using Trello and Google Sheets.

We are now considering building our own software to manage all of our projects as we can’t find one piece of software to manage our entire process, HOWEVER I would like to explain our requirements to see if anyone here can recommend a tool / software that will facilitate our needs before we go building a bespoke web app to manage our client’s and projects.


01 - ability to add leads manually

02- ability to collect leads from your website (via contact form)

03 - ability to change ‘leads’ to ‘live’ to ‘completed’ etc

04 - ability to have a predefined set of tasks auto created each time you create a new lead or change the stage / status of a project (‘lead’ to ‘live’ etc)... every project and stage has common tasks that we do for each project so I’d like these common tasks to be auto created per project and stage

05 - ability to control who sees what tasks (don’t want developers seeing financial or client business tasks... and don’t want clients seeing internal dev snag lists that we create... at the moment we manage this via Trello but it means we have to create 2 separate…
Hello Experts,

I am new to atlassian/confluence. I am brainstorming some ideas to make a more reader friendly documentation available on our wiki, and I was wondering if a flow chart with links to different documents can be created on the wiki? So far, I have only found documents with links. I would like to have a flow chart with links in the shapes so the user can know which documents has the information needed. Thanks.

Our Organization offered an excellent opportunity and I would like to take advantage of the opportunity.   We have a project to develop web portal and other applications. Our Organization sells cloud service (B2B) and we have tens of customers and thousands of users. Our customers from the public and private sectors. Our Organization has contracted with a vendor to do all development tasks and I am a single point of contact with the vendor and I have experiences in Programming , IT support and Management. This position needs specific skills and knowledge so, I will be happy to receive your advices about :
-      Best practices of communication with vendor
-      Procedures of development web application and templates or other resources and tools I should use.
-      I do not want to let the vendor to build architecture of applications and DBs without get back to us.
-      improve Response time , traffic and web application performance.

Your help will open the future in front of me.

Thank you

I can not make SSO with crowd working. I have set up SSO, as desribed in the articles for Jira and Confluence, but can not make it work.

If I log in to Jira with a Crowd User and then change to Confluence I have to log in again.
I have checked the cookies. The Crowd Cookie seems to be there, like you can see here:
This cookie somehow seems to be ignored on my Jira, Confluence and crowd.

The urls I have set up for Jira, Confluence and Crowd are:

So they all are sharing the domain.

The crowd directory for Jira and Confluence is set up correctly with the above url and is working. Just Single Sign On does not work.

The username I use is "armin". This user is inside the groups "jira-administrators", "jira-users", "confluence-administrators", "confluence-users", "crowd-administrators".

On Jira I am using the SSOSeraphAuthenticator, on Confluence the ConfluenceCrowdSSOAuthenticator.

I also tried to switch off the "Require consistent client IP address", but also did not help.

Please find the debugging log of crowd here:

Hi Team,

Any suggestion for Integrate Nagios with JIRA.
I am planning to start this project.Need your valuable suggestion

How do I setup MS Project 2016 to open more than one window at a time? I know that I can go to the View tab, and choose switch windows, but I need to be able to see 2 different projects at one time. I have dual monitors.

Thank you,
can anyone suggest some real-time tasks or assignments on java projects, how to achieve those? just need some tips based on your project.

example, my project is xxx and so far I worked on a couple of tasks.   can you mention briefly those tasks(at least a few assignments just for reference)?

Thanks in advance guys.
What code is required and where in Project 2016 Visual Basic Editor to run a macro each time a project file is opened or when the value in a specific custom field is changed
I have a corrupt MS Project file,  When I open it I get "not a valid format".  I've tried many of the suggested solution to no avail.  I don't have project professional so I can't try that solution,  What do you think?
I'm using MPXJ to read Microsoft Project files (.mpp), but the current version of MPXJ (7.2.1) seems to refuse to read Lookup fields when I change a field to have a different name.

For example, create a new project, show Text1, set it to Lookup, add 0 and 1 to the Lookup list, and rename Text1 to anything ('Test'). Now generate a task and set it's Text1 (Test) to 1.

Now you can't read the 1 in Text1 (task.getText(1) returns null).

We parse many files, some of them are quite large, so it's not possible for me to continually modify our customers' headers, read them in, and then change them back. Further, I don't see any way to modify them programatically.

Has anyone else found this issue? Does anyone know how to workaround/fix this behavior?

I want some help to create a pre commit hook to Restrict Subversion commits if the Jira Issue key is Not in.
I am very new to SVN and don't have any experience in scripting also.
SVN is installed on Windows serve 2016.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

I have found the below link.But its for Linux and not sure how to change it to windows.
I have been tasked to give a proposal for the subject matter.

Essentially, it is a project to set policy and procedure to document any change to IT infrastructure managed and to align business processes and objectives with changes for IT infrastructure.

Thanks for your help in advance.

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?
The following message appears when I try to save the project: "The project has been updated in another session and available data can not be more valid. Update a page to see the most current project data."
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?
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.
