Tips whilst working with Atlassian's JIRA and Confluence

If you are unfortunate enough to work with Atlassian products I recommend:

Learning JIRA shortcuts

Hit ? in Jira to see shortcuts

Navigating between issues quickly and hitting O to Open the specific issue is my favourite party trick.

Another way to make accessing issues easier is to create a “search engine” in Chrome upon chrome://settings/searchEngines

Other search engines

Jira reports

JQL cheat sheet

It’s common in Agile processes to report on what has been marked “Done” in an iteration. An iteration is usually a week, but it can be several.

e.g. project = "<project name>" AND status changed to "Done" during (2021-07-26, 2021-07-30) AND (any other filters you are using for your project)

You can replace the dates with e.g. startOfWeek("-6d") for last Monday

In Confluence you can add a Jira query and it will generate the list of issues for you. You need to save the page for the table to show up!
