Projects

This page is to give you an overview of the projects that we create and have in place as a minimum. If there is a need for any new and custom projects then feel free to add accordingly.

To help you with that process, you will find instructions on creating a new project at the bottom of this page.

Below you can see a list of the projects we currently have for each client and what the purpose of each one is.

Info sharing

Used to share private details e.g. server details, magento admin details.

Tickets created within this Project are intended to be a secure place to store these details. Unlike other projects, no emails are sent to indicate updates to these tasks.

Infrastructure

For tickets relating to your servers or hosting environment, rather than your site's code itself

Jira itself

Intended for marking up any changes we need to make to your Jira installation. This might include missing fields, new project types etc

Mag/Mag2

This project will be used for the clients website and will store all the tasks they would like to be looked into.
