Catalog for Jira – think outside the issues

Almost everything in Jira can be stored as an issue: sales, vacations, even items, and personal notes! However, not every entity really needs a separate project and a workflow. Catalog for Jira is a great solution for storing the cross-project lists of different entities right in your Jira. Each directory entry can be extended to a comprehensive card with various parameters. Create, interlink and manage directories, link the entities with Jira issues through the provided custom field. Check the Use Cases & Ideas below!

Key Highlights

Keep all information inside your Jira

Store all information inside your Jira (no connectors required): the cross-project list of catalog directories is always in one click – on the upper panel of Jira. Interlink directory entries to meet your data structure.

Link a Catalog entry with an issue

Create custom select lists and extend list options with various parameters. Select an entry from the list and click on the link to browse the entry parameters. Browse the different kinds of linked issues within an entry if required.

Use regular JQL for search

Use basic or advanced search to find the issues linked to a particular catalog entry. All select list-related queries are available.

Use-Cases & Ideas

Allow the group of regular users to manage the list of options.
