  • What is JIRA ?

    At its very core JIRA is a software program that helps organizations manage their issues, tasks, processes, and projects. However, it is ‘smart software’ because much of the tedious stuff related to issues, or tasks, or processes, or project management, can be automated fairly easily.
    JIRA started life in Atlassian (the parent company) as a way to track issues related to software ‘bugs’. It wasn’t long before additional features were added and it grew into a project management program with the ability to ‘automate’ a lot of the work that is necessary but provides little value, such as emailing or phoning a work colleague when a task is done and ready to be handed off.
    The Jira Architecture
    Installing JIRA is simple and straightforward. However, it is important for you to understand the components that make up the overall architecture of JIRA and the installation options available. This will help you make an informed decision and be better prepared for future maintenance and troubleshooting.

    Atlassian provides a comprehensive overview of the JIRA architecture However, for day-to-day administration and usage of JIRA, we do not need to go into details; the information provided can be overwhelming at first glance. For this reason, we have summarized a high-level overview that highlights the most important components in the architecture.
    Application Services
    The application services layer contains all the functions and services provided by JIRA. These services include various business functions, such as workflow and notification, which will be discussed in depth in Jira training, Workflows and Business Processes, E-mails and Notifications, respectively. Other services such as REST/Web Service provide integration points to other applications The OSGi service provides the base add-on framework to extend JIRA’s functionalities.

    Data Storage
    The data storage layer stores persistent data in several places within JIRA. Most business data, such as projects and issues, are stored in a relational database. Content such as uploaded attachments and search indexes are stored in the filesystem in the JIRA_HOME directory, which we will talk about in the next section. The underlying relational database used is transparent to the users, and you can migrate from one database to another with ease as referenced at
