About Universal Directories
Universal Directories – think outside the issues
Almost everything in Jira can be stored as an issue: sales, vacations, even items, and personal notes! However, not every entity really needs a separate project and a workflow. Universal Directories is a great solution for storing structured data – different objects with their parameters and dependencies – right in your Jira.Each directory entry can be extended to a comprehensive card with various parameters. Create, interlink and manage directories, connect objects to Jira issues via the custom fields. Check the Use Cases & Ideas!
Keep all information inside your Jira
Store all information inside your Jira (no connectors required): the cross-project list of catalog directories is always in one click – on the upper panel of Jira. Interlink directory entries to meet your data structure.
Link a Directory entry with an issue
Create custom select lists and extend list options with various parameters. Select an entry from the list and click on the link to browse the entry parameters. Browse the different kinds of linked issues within an entry if required.
Use regular JQL for search
Use basic or advanced search to find the issues linked to a particular directory entry. All select list-related queries are available.
