Welcome to the Jira wiki space

Jira is an issue tracking and project tracking tool for software development teams that we purchased from Atlassian.  Our Jira installation also uses GreenHopper, an add-on from Atlassian that is generally used for agile project management, but offers benefits even to projects not using the agile methodology.

This space contains tools to help you use the UW-IT Jira Service.  You can find information to help you get started, use Jira, and to get help.
