News: Archiving issues in the data center version of Jira Software and Jira Service Desk

In a large Jira instance or in a large Jira Service Desk, thousands of new projects and issues accumulate over time. If Jira or Jira Service Desk grows rapidly, this can slow down the search and also the re-indexing of a Jira instance takes more time. Although Jira allows to close and archive whole projects, this is not possible with single issues within a project. With the release of Jira Software 8.4 for data centers and Jira Service Desk 4.4 for data centers, Atlassian now introduces the ability to archive issues.

Integrated Project and User Portal (IPUP): Transparent and flexible management of projects and users in large environments

Development departments in large companies often lead a life of their own with regard to the software they use for their Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). There are dangers in that: Especially in these departments, where sensitive data is often involved, transparency and traceability should actually be the top priority. Managers must be able to check at any time which users are working on which projects with which tools. This challenge was also faced by a globally active manufacturer of automotive accessories. The long-standing Atlassian partner catworkx developed a tool for this company with which projects and the assignment of their participating users are set up (provisioned) largely automatically: the Integrated Project and User Portal (IPUP).
