Navigation Basics

We aim to make access to JSU features from your Jira instance as seamless and as flexible as possible. However you prefer to work in Jira, you can get to JSU in any of the following ways:

The global navigation bar is displayed at the top of our Get Started, My Workflows, Reporting, and Settings pages. If you are already familiar with JSU for Jira Cloud, you will see that it is now quicker to access these pages without navigating via your Admin Settings menu. A Resources menu () provides access to our support portal and JSU user documentation.

Get Started

Our Get Started page is your default entry page for the app. Click Start Customizing to quickly go to the workflow you want to customize. Get Started also provides direct access to our user documentation, use cases, and support portal.

My Workflows

My Workflows is a single-page overview of your saved JSU rules where you can quickly see how JSU has been implemented across your entire instance.

Reporting

The Reporting menu provides access to the Execution Log and your JSU migration reports.

Settings

The Settings page is where you can enable or disable the JSU options:

The Settings page in JSU Cloud.
  • Show Hints & Tips: Enabled by default, this option displays contextual hints and tips throughout the app to help you onboard faster and make informed decisions. If you need a visual clue when using a feature, click Show Me.

    To hide Hints & Tips, disable the Hints & Tips toggle.

  • Execution Messages: This option is enabled by default for evaluation licenses to help you see when a JSU rule is triggered and when the execution is complete. Pop-up messages are displayed when viewing the issue that triggered the rule. Messages are displayed only to Jira administrators who have triggered the rule. If there are multiple rules executed within the same time frame, a summary message is displayed.

  • Email Notifications: The JSU product team would like to keep you informed of new features, security notifications, and occasional feedback requests. Disabled by default, this option allows you to opt in or out of receiving emails from the team.
