Migrating from My ToDo to Checklist for Jira
We've made it easy to migrate from My Todo to Checklist for Jira.
One of the many things you can use Jira for is…managing Jira. One of the ways you can get the most out of Jira is by taking advantage of a few of the thousands of Jira apps available in the Atlassian Marketplace. The other way you can get the most out of Jira is by keeping your instance clean and efficient, which means – among other things – not installing too many apps.
So how do you choose which Jira apps to install? And how do you manage the decision process?
Given the abundance of apps in the Marketplace, and the fact that you can usually find multiple apps for any given function, you’ll need some criteria for choosing which apps you want to use. In the Jira Strategy Admin Workbook, Rachel Wright recommends asking the following questions when vetting an app:
If after considering the questions above, you decide to proceed, you’ll want to test the app in a test environment that mirrors your production instance. Make sure that you have enough sample data available to sufficiently test the app’s functionality. Enlist the person who made the original requestor in the testing (this not only tests the software, but ensure that the app does what the requestor thinks it does).
While the requestor and/or other users are engaged in acceptance testing, the tech team can conduct a security and performance reviews, making sure that no features of the app can be easily hacked or maliciously used; and that using the app doesn’t negatively impact Jira’s performance.
Between vetting and testing the app, you’ll have a lot of information to keep track of. An easy way to do that is to receive and manage requests for Jira apps in a JSM project. You can create a template checklist that tracks the vetting, testing and even the procurement processes.
Along with ensuring that you choose the right app, it will guarantee that everyone goes through the same process. (Why does the tech team always get the best tools?!)
