Glass Project Documentation solves 3 main problems with Jira Project Configurations:
Education - for Newcomers
Helps (new) users to quickly catch up with (new) Jira Projects.
Easier communication with Administrators
Control - for Admins
Helps Jira administrators to quickly validate Project Schemes and other Settings.
Less administrative mistakes
Easier cooperation for instances with multiple Administrators
Easier communication with Users
Process Documentation - for Audits
Creates an always up-to-date Project Configuration Documentation for every project in seconds.
Saves lot of time and wasted effort
Makes documentation up-to-date all the time
Pretty formatted, easy to understand
To reach our goals, we created an addon that provides tons of information for not only the Jira administrators, but average users as well. The information accessible for users owned the Glass View permission.
This means Administrators can "open" most of the projects for wide audience, while sensitve projects can be kept hidden via Permission Schemes.
