First steps

This chapter will guide you through the features Issue Templates for Jira offers and explain how to use them.


Before you start, make sure you have all required permissions.

Set up Templates repository

Templates repository is a regular Jira project in which all issues automatically become templates.

Templates created in the repository can be used for creating repetitive tasks in Jira.

To effectively use Issue Templates for Jira, you need at least two projects:

  • One project for templates called templates repository
  • Another to create issues from previously created templates


To set up a Templates repository:

  1. Navigate to Jira Settings > Apps
  2. Click Configuration in Issue Templates for Jira section, on the left sidebar.
  3. Select a project from the list or Create New.

For details, see Templates Repository chapter.
