Bugzilla vs Jira: What are the differences?

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..

      Review ofJiraJira

      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.

      We use a combination of Scrum and Kanban for our tasks. We focus more on the integration with Bitbucket to keep track of tasks and have bi-directional accountability.
