JIRA Admin FAQ

  1. Select "Add Project" in JIRA Administration tab
  2. Fill in the following fields:
    • Name: Title of project (for a Contrib project, this should be prefixed by the words "Contrib: ")
    • Key: Unique Identifier, all uppercase, 3-6 characters
    • Project Lead: Person making request (use the "Select a User" icon/widget)
    • URL: Confluence page (if it exists), or Subversion repo URL otherwise
    • Notification Scheme: Use "Sakai", though it's possible to create a custom scheme
    • Permission Scheme: Use "Sakai", though it's possible to create a custom scheme
    • Issue Security Scheme: Use "Sakai Security Scheme", though it's possible to create a custom scheme
  3. Select "Add"
  4. Now the new project should be on the project list, but there's still more to do, so select on the project name
  5. Select "Select" link next to "Issue Type Scheme" and change to "Sakai", though it's possible to create a custom scheme
  6. Select "Select" link next to "Field Configuration Scheme" and change to "Sakai", though it's possible to create a custom scheme
  7. Select "Select" link next to "Workflow Scheme" and change to "Sakai", though it's possible to create a custom scheme
  8. Select "Select Category" link next to "Project Category" and change to "Sakai", "Sakai Contrib", or whatever makes sense
  9. Add a new component called "Implementation" (may be changed by project lead)
  10. Add a new version called "trunk" (may be changed by project lead)

The above process will allow all developers (everyone in "jira-developers" group) and all users (everyone in "jira-users" group) access to the project. Additional groups can be created and assigned if a more restrictive access list is desired.
