Portfolio for Jira (formerly Jira Portfolio) is a powerful, and highly attractive add-on for Jira. Portfolio provides strategic planning capability to Jira. This is a huge development in the Atlassian community. For many years product developers and managers have had to maintain strategic plans and product roadmaps outside of Atlassian’s tools. With the new release […]

As promised in my last post, this one is going to cover a few settings that users often overlook. Jira Let’s start with Jira. First, select your profile icon in the top right corner, then select ‘Profile.’ You can edit a few sections on that screen, but the MOST important settings are down a little bit […]

Recently, during a painful Confluence instance merge/migration, I needed a way to address messed up space permissions.  We won’t get into why they were messed up, but a little better group alignment before the merge would have been helpful.  Anyway, there was no turning back and I needed to be able to fix spaces that were rendered […]

Last week at Atlassian Summit was a blur… but a very productive one. I posted my objectives for the summit before I left, so how did I do? Well let me tell you! I said I wanted to meet the folks I work with remotely, and I did that for sure. I had a wonderful […]

Great times with great people, here’s a recap of some of the best moments for me from Atlassian Summit 2015. Ecosystem Day: It was great to get to participate in this for the first time. The morning was a bit of a whirlwind as we got to preview quite a bit of the Atlassian content that […]

I have made it pretty clear to those who have cared to ask, Billy Joel is my dude. His brilliant lyrics, incredible talent with piano keys, and over all “cool” style have been my go to music since I was little girl. I can listen to his music and can find a song that relates […]

Wrapping an Atlassian application in a package with a nice bow makes it easier to install via a configuration management tool. Building an RPM was a pain until we started using FPM, the Effing Package Management (https://github.com/jordansissel/fpm). The README includes required packages and installation steps across a variety of platforms. Here is the command to […]

Hi Folks! Summit is here! Please drop by booth C4 (yes, like BOOM!) and say hello! It’s unfortunate, but I will most likely spend the majority of my time in the booth. I would love to absorb more of the sessions, but I can’t forget that I GET to meet so many awesome Atlassian users, […]

Next week I’ll be attending Atlassian Summit 2015 along with many of my Isos Technology Atlassian Expert cohorts. We’re going to have an Isos booth (C4), some really fun promotional items (our marketing team really crushed it) and I’ll be filling my brain with all the new knowledge from Atlassian. Every conference I go to, […]

What if you need to access a “private” API with Atlassian Connect?  The frustrating reality is that although API’s exist for Agile/Greenhopper, you can’t use them within your Connect add-ons.  So, if you need a list of Sprints,  you’re likely left scratching your head. Maybe there’s a better way than what I came up with, […]
