What is Jira
Jira was built to track and manage bugs in software development. Since then, it has expanded to help teams plan and track all aspects of the software development cycle. From backlog grooming to release management, Jira Software was designed to be the connective tissue for your software team.

- Capture bugs: Capture bugs anywhere in your software projects with Jira Software. Once you've identified a bug, create an issue and add all relevant details, including: descriptions, severity level, screenshots, version and more. Issues can represent anything from a software bug, a project task, to a leave request form and each unique issue type can have its own custom workflow.
- Assign and prioritize: Once bugs are captured, rank and prioritize them based on the importance and urgency of the issue and the team's workload capacity. Assigning bugs can be accomplished with a few keystrokes from the ticket and prioritizing these bugs is as simple as dragging and dropping them in your team's backlog or To Do column.
- Track bugs to done: Configure a different workflow for bugs versus other issue types, so that your QA team can focus on managing and resolving bugs, while your product team can focus on building new features.
- Get notified: Jira Software allows you to customize your project so that the right people are notified when something changes. So if a new bug is captured it will be routed to the correct team member without further discussion. Notifications within Jira are not just @mentions, but can also be configured to automatically update someone when a status change occurs.
