JIRA Core 101: How to create issues

June 18, 2021



Until now, you know JIRA, you know what it is about and how to create and manage projects. However, the projects are nothing without issues, therefore, it is time to talk about them.


You will see incidents, or issues, are a vital part of any project, because without them, those involved would have no way of knowing what should be done, and in what order things should be done.


Then, as we mentioned before, issues are tasks that must be carried out in order to comply with the project in general. Which means that each project has a number of issues.


As for the number of issues in each project, these can be added or modified by the users involved in said project. You should see something like this:


Once you click on the + symbol below the last occurrence, you can create a new task in that column. When you create it and click it, a popup window will appear with the task created:


Create an issue


Once you are in the project, you just have to select the + symbol that appears on the left side of the screen, in the blue bar. Once there, a box will appear with all the fields that you must fill in to create a new incidence / task. It should look like this:


Of course, as the issues are being fulfilled, you will be able to move them from column to column until the project is finished.


Display issues


To view the issues you only have to follow two steps, first, you must click on "issues and filters" from the main panel of JIRA. Here:


Once you click there, all the available filters will appear, select one of them and the related or relevant issues will be automatically searched. It should look like this:


In this way, you can view all issues quickly and easily, locating which tasks are in each project, the state they are in and move between each of them.
