Project Management - Jira

Jira is a web application for bug management, troubleshooting and operational project management developed by Atlassian.

Jira is run on servers at the HRZ (no cloud), which means that all data remains on servers at the university. The use of the tool is coordinated with the data protection and IT security officer.

For whom?


The tools are available to all employees of the University of Bonn; login is possible after activation with an employee ID.

Students & Guests

Students and guests can have read-only access, depending on the release of the data.

What for?


    Jira [ˈdʒi.rɑː] is a web-based tool that is used to organise larger projects. It primarily supports agile project management (visualisation with Kanban boards, sprints), but also allows classic project management (work packages, milestones, dependencies, etc.).

    Jira was historically used especially in software development, but has now also established itself in non-technical areas of many companies. Typical use cases are task management, requirements management and helpdesks. Jira can be used for process management and process improvement through its workflow management functions.

    Under the heading "Atlassian Tools", the University Computer Centre operates the three tools Confluence, Jira and Bitbucket, which can be used together in the areas of organisation, knowledge management, collaboration and software development.

    In order to be able to use Jira sensibly, basic experience in the area of project management is required from all those involved; in addition, training should definitely take place in advance.
    The HRZ will advise you on whether your project can still be presented in Confluence or whether Jira is more suitable.

    How does it work?

    You can find more information in our HRZ-Docu.
