Jira products comes with many different project templates created to suit your team's needs and workflow. For example, you can create projects optimized for Scrum or Kanban methodologies.

Jira admins can create projects from any template, including both company-managed or team-managed projects. Any user can create their own team-managed project (like the team-managed Scrum or Kanban projects). Jira admins can change this setting in global permissions. Learn more about team-managed projects.

To create a project:

  1. Select Projects > Create project in the navigation.
  2. Under project templates, templates are grouped into a series of use-case based categories. Under Products, templates are grouped by Jira Cloud products. Choose a category or product.
  3. Learn more about the available templates and select a template.
  4. View the detailed information on the template and choose Use template.
  5. Choose a project type: either a company-managed project or a team-managed project. Learn more about team-managed projects.
  6. Give your project a name. You can change your service project template by selecting Change template.
  7. Select Create.
We automatically generate a project key when the project is created. Whoever created the project is set as the project lead by default.

To change these details:

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings.
  2. Select Details.

We remember which template you choose and use that as the default whenever you create a project.

Only Jira admins can create projects with a shared configuration.

Projects that share configuration share:
