Help Us Improve

Welcome to the JIRA Service Page

JIRA is a bug tracking and project management tool available to campus software development/implementation teams and their partners to help manage projects and ongoing application support. JIRA provides workflow management for teams to track defects, issues, enhancement requests, tasks, and deadlines. The ability to organize and track issues facilitates collaboration among project teams to improve code quality and the speed of development. Enterprise Integration Services (EIS) has licensed JIRA from Atlassian and offers it as part of the UCB Development Tools and Services. It is hosted in the UCB Data Center, uses CalNet to control access and is a Tier 1 application in place at the UC Berkeley Disaster Recovery Hot Site (DRHS) at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).

"Software development is inherently social. Managing software development projects using JIRA helps teams stay in touch." -Atlassian
