Bugzilla vs Jira: What are the differences?

Developers describe Bugzilla as "Server software designed to help you manage software development". Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System". Defect Tracking Systems allow individual or groups of developers to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively. Most commercial defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features its expensive counterparts lack. On the other hand, Jira is detailed as "The #1 software development tool used by agile teams to plan, track, and release great software". Jira's secret sauce is the way it simplifies the complexities of software development into manageable units of work Jira comes out-of-the-box with everything agile teams need to ship value to customers faster..

Bugzilla and Jira can be categorized as "Issue Tracking" tools.

According to the StackShare community, Jira has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2126 company stacks & 1528 developers stacks; compared to Bugzilla, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

from
YouTrack

to
Linear
at

Last time we shared there information about our decision about using YouTrack over Jira actually we found much better solution that our team have loved. Linear is a minimalistic issue tracker that integrates well with Sentry, GitHub, Slack and Figma which are our basic tools. I would like to recommend checking out Linear as a potential alternative to "heavy" issue trackers, maybe at enterprises that may not work but when we're a startup that works awesome!

YouTrack feels much more lightweight than Jira and additionally have all of features that Jira have, of course lacks at some analytics features, but it's more powerful at permission management and agile workflow. Additionally YouTrack have awesome integration with other JetBrains products such as incoming JetBrains Space and all other IDEs such as GoLand.

    Reviews of Bugzilla and Jira

    Review of
    Jira

    Most of my time in JIRA is spent

    • Waiting for pages to load
    • Clicking on links, because the information that I need is not available on the first pages I reach
    • Looking for the next link to click, because each page has a different layout and the bug title or the latest comment might be placed anywhere on the page

    Additionally, any time I search the documentation I get bug reports from years ago that appear unresolved or instructions for modifying the on-premesis installation (we have their cloud service).

    Compared to Bugzilla and Redmine, Jira requires a lot of manual configuration which can make project issues not compatible status-wise.

    So much relief as you can track each and every issues, bugs, dev project and maintenance and a time machine when it comes to do that less interesting timesheet or daily status. Its a rescuer.
