Gaia for Jira explained to you

Gaia for Jira is an app designed to help you create Jira projects and Confluence spaces from predefined combined templates. These templates are fully customizable (you create them) and can be used to instantiate multiple new Jira+Confluence projects with a default baseline to start with. This app targets team leaders, project managers, architects, project organizers, who have a repetitive set of document artifact (checklists, instructions, forms) they need to repeat:

  • always use the same project layouts;

  • need to reenter the same list of tasks again and again;

  • wish to setup an entry level software/system engineering process;

  • wish to setup their Jira Agile project.

The app is able to connect your Confluence instance with your Jira projects and alleviate the management tasks.

What Gaia for Jira has to offer you:

  • creating a Jira project with a set a predefined issues taken from a template;

  • importing your own project templates to use when creating a Jira project;

  • creating a Confluence space from predefined content using a template;

  • importing your own space template to use when creating a Jira project;

  • automating the referencing of Jira issues in the Confluence space;

  • automating the creation of Jira Agile board and Jira Dashboards;

  • the flexibility to configure as many templates as needed;

  • and much more!
