Before you start!

  • Important: before installing the app visit Atlassian Marketplace and check which Jira versions are compatible with BigPicture.
  • To check for updates make sure you have an Internet connection and check the Manage apps section of the Jira administration.

  • We do recommend to backup your Jira and check the release notes for any known bugs and planned changes such as migration to a new module.

  • In case you encounter any problems use your backup and follow the reporting procedure and provide us with Jira logs.

  • We do not recommend a rollback to an earlier version. Use the backup and install the exact version which was installed when the backup was created.


After BigPicture app is upgraded or enabled, the app runs a full scope synchronization process of all existing active (not closed) Programs. As a result, there is an increased probability that all active Programs will be synchronized once a user wants to open a given Program and start working with it.

Installing BigPicture app in Jira

We recommend to install the app using the Atlassian's Universal Plugin Manager which will always install the latest version and - what's more important - the one compatible with your Jira instance.

You have to be logged in as an Jira admin in order to install the app - go to Jira Administration → Manage apps → Find new apps; and search for "BigPicture".
