Jira: Advanced Administration on LinkedIn

In this course, we’ll focus on the configuration areas you use most. My goal is not just for you to understand the settings but to be able to make smart decisions when creating or changing them. Knowing the best way to solve a problem and how it will impact your application in the future is the difference between a good administrator and a great one.
