Join Robert Anthony for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting started, part of Planning and Releasing Software with JIRA.
- [Instructor] We don't want to risk damaging anything in your company's instance, which is why we suggest you follow these installation instructions to ensure you are working in a closed sandbox environment where mistakes are encouraged. Be sure to pay close attention to the following process so you're instance will be configured correctly for this video. Proceed to the URL displayed on your screen. Next, select Try it free under the Jira Software leftmost option. This will direct you to the account signup page. Choose your site name.
This will be affixed to an atlassian.net website, as we are creating a Cloud site. Next, fill in your name, email, and password information. If you sign in with an email address previously used, you may not be eligible for the free demo. To ensure your demo is provided for free, register with a newly created email address which is disposal after this demo. After clicking Start now, you will be presented with a confirmation screen asking you to check your email.
This may take a few minutes. If it's still not delivered, be sure to check your junk mail. After clicking the verification link in your email, you will be brought to a spinning up message and screen. After the spin-up is complete, you will then be presented with a welcome screen. Now we're at the configuration demo. We're going to proceed through these steps slowly, making sure your demo project is properly configured. First, I'm going to choose my native language. For me, I'm choosing United States English.
You don't need to choose an avatar, so skip this step by pressing Next. Next, we're going to select Create a sample project under the text See a project in action on the left-hand side. On the Create project with sample data popup, we're going to choose Scrum software development, under the SOFTWARE tab on the left-hand side. We then click Next. Now, we are going to use the text Mobile Project 1 for the name of the project.
We are going to use the key MOB1, the idea being that this instance is built for a software development team that specializes in mobile applications. You should now be presented with a Kanban board with a tutorial. We're going to go ahead and skip through this by clicking Next on each tutorial box. After we click the Search button, we then have the option to click Close.
Now we are placed on the board. We will click the Jira icon on the left-hand side. You should now be on the System dashboard page, and we are ready to begin.
