Learn how to set up Jira Software Cloud and integrate it with other products and applications.
You can use Jira components in company-managed projects, and they’re only available in the project they’re created in.
Jira components help you group issues in your project around product features, departments, or workstreams. You can assign component owners, and auto-assign people to issues linked to those components.
For example, a project might have Jira components like Frontend and Backend to represent different engineering workstreams. Each workstream lead can be assigned as the component owner, manage the issues linked to the component, and choose who is auto-assigned to those issues.
By using Compass components in Jira projects, teams can understand the status and impact of their work on their wider software architecture, and surface information to move that work forward.
