Putting It All Together - Utilizing Integrations Between Atlassian Products

Connecting Applications

  • Create Application Links
  • JIRA, Confluence, Stash, Bamboo, FishEye
  • Hipchat/BitBucket some day, not now
  • Not 1:1. You can create links from multiple JIRA to one Confluence, vice versa

Life of a PM at Atlassian

  • Product Manager
  • Conduit for all decisions
  • To some, he’s the person who fights for the user.
  • To the CEO, he thinks the PM is the person to whom he handed the keys to the product
  • No matter what, they have a lot of stuff in the air. Lots of signal, even more noise.
  • On top of that, they’re trying to plan your backlog
  • “If a major project is truly innovative, you cannot possibly now its exact cost and its exact schedule at the beginning.”
  • One of the most valuable things to Atlassian has been the Agile manifesto, specifically valuing responding to change over following a plan.
  • JIRA Dashboard – three tabs – New is a constant
    • Popular tab
    • Consistent gardening
    • Internal Marketing
  • How do PMs use this to get their ideas out there?
    • Announcements block
    • re Confluence Answers, he tosses out a humble blog post about the idea
    • post gets 105 likes and 44 comments, mostly very valuable
    • Creates a confluence space for the project
      • Faces of the people involved
      • Links to the JIRA project

Confluence to JIRA and Back

  • 1:1 mapping of project to space
  • pasting in of JIRA issue links to Confluence become JIRA macros
  • communication enablement

Developers at Atlassian

  • Wired In! Laser focus.
  • Search in JIRA –> Context everywhere
  • Focus: Agile backlog

JIRA Meets Stash

  • issue key mentioned the issue in his commit
  • this becomes a link within stash
  • issues in stash are transitionable from stash and it moves along in jira
