Jira Service Management: Administration

Jira Service Management takes support to the next level with queues, SLAs, a simple interface for your customers, and integration with Confluence as a knowledgebase.

In this course, you’ll learn how to set up and administer Jira Service Management so customers can create requests, support agents can provide the help users need, and leadership can measure effectiveness.

Jira: Advanced Administration

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. For each section, I’ve included the most important things to know, best practices, and my personal tips so you can avoid all the mistakes I’ve made over the years. Don’t miss the challenges, quizzes, downloadable handouts, and some personal stories scattered throughout the course.
