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.
