Creating Programs using the Program templates
In Jira, when creating a new Jira project the user can pick from different Jira presets which in general include:
- Software projects
- Business projects
When you create new Programs the data need to be stored in at lease one of Jira projects.
If the option 'Create a new Jira project' is used, a Project in Jira will be created and it will use the configuration as defined using Program templates in plugin's global configuration.
Only a single template can be saved currently hence if you want to create different types of projects using the Program Wizard, create Projects in Jira before creating a Program.
Click on the marked areas to learn more about those listed Jira features.
The Program templates are available only in the server version of the app due to Jira Cloud API limitations.
