Quick start project creation with bundles

With bundles, you can now effortlessly create between 2 to 6 projects at once, streamlining your project creation process and minimizing the need for repetitive manual tasks. Whether you're working in Jira Work Management, Jira Software, or Jira Service Management, bundles guarantee a smooth project creation experience.

Choose from two pre-set bundles: the Marketing or the IT team bundle. But if these don't fit your requirements, you have the flexibility to customize and create your own bundle.

There are a few ways you can create a bundle, one way is to:

  1. Select the plus icon + in the project sidebar

  2. Choose More templates from the dropdown

  3. Select Bundles

Another way to create a bundle is to:

  1. Select Projects > Create project in the top navigation bar

Certain Jira Service Management templates exclusively support either company-managed or team-managed projects. If you choose one of these templates as part of a bundle, all projects within it will adopt the selected project type. To alter the project type, exclude the corresponding Jira Service Management template from your bundle.

Company-managed templates:

  • IT Service Management

  • Customer Service Management

Team-managed template:

  • IT Service Management (Essentials)

To make things easier for you, we’ll add all the projects in your bundles to the Shortcuts view in the horizontal navigation. Use these shortcuts to quickly navigate between projects within your bundle, without losing momentum. Reducing time spent on navigating between your projects and products means you can focus more on the work at hand. More about shortcuts

Get a more holistic view of your projects by linking issues across different projects within your bundle. Creating dependencies ensures that the progress of one issue influences the timeline or execution of another, promoting better coordination and efficiency, and preventing siloed efforts. Teams can understand dependencies, letting them plan and execute projects more collaboratively. Tracking dependencies also helps to identify potential bottlenecks early on, allowing for proactive rather than reactive problem-solving. More about how to link issues
