BigPicture


BigPicture is the leading Portfolio, Product, and Project Management application for Atlassian Jira. It gives managers unprecedented clarity of information, helps them neatly visualize roadmaps of even the most complex initiatives, smartly distribute workload and allocate resources, efficiently coordinate work of teams, easily report on progress, and ensure perfect strategy-to-execution alignment at all levels. 

The system supports agile (SAFe® included), classic, and hybrid management methodologies and allows for combining them freely at the portfolio level. BigPicture is the go-to PPM solution for any forward-thinking organization before, during, or after digital transformation.

The app integrates smoothly with Jira, Trello, Confluence, and more. Your teams can keep using their preferred tools, while you get a vantage point view of what's going on.

BigPicture Enterprise is an expansion pack for our BigPicture app allowing you to set up an unlimited number of configurable templates, rename modules, create an unlimited number of scenarios, use workload contouring in all modes (including the manual distribution), and set up Tempo integration. Additionally, BigPicture Enterprise comes with a set of pre-configured templates that make the implementation of various methodologies (such as LeSS and SAFe®) much easier.

Installing the App

The Initial configuration article outlines the most essential configuration steps required to start using the App and provides guidance and best practice on the most common use cases.

We recommend installing the App using Atlassian's Universal Plugin Manager, which always installs the latest version and - what's more important - the one compatible with your Jira instance.

You have to be logged in using an admin account to install the App - go to Jira Administration > Manage Apps > find new Add-ons and search for "BigPicture."


Manual installation

If your instance is not connected to the Internet, or you would like to test a specific version, visit this website to see all available versions. Be careful to choose the version for your Jira instance! When sure, click on the desired version to expand its row. Hit "Download" on the right-hand side.

The only thing left is to upload the file to Jira. You can do that by going to Jira Administration → Add-ons → Manage Add-ons. Then, select "Upload add-on" on the right-hand side.

Upgrading the App to BigPicture 8

Due to numerous new features and redesign of existing ones, such as the new security roles or new task database structure, the upgrade might take some time. This depends mainly on the number of items synchronized in the App's Programs. Therefore, it is important to book enough time as the App will not be usable during the upgrade.
