Scrum Project Template

Agile Boards

Two agile boards are created for the project: one for use by the project managers and another for use by the development team.

The Project Management Board is built to track the development of major features and long-term strategic planning. This board represents the relationship between epics and user stores. Only issues with these types are displayed on the board. Swimlanes are defined by epics. Estimation for the user stories is counted in story points. The project management board has the following default configuration:

The Project Development Board is built for planning and managing incremental improvements in a series of sprints. This board represents the relationship between user stories and tasks. Swimlanes are defined by user stories. This board also displays issues with the type Task. Estimation for the tasks is counted in ideal days. The board for the development team has the following default configuration:

Workflows

The following default workflows are attached to the project automatically:

In addition to the default workflows, a workflow that is specific to the Scrum board is attached to the project automatically. The Scrum workflow contains several rules that help you manage assignees, ideal days, story points, and subtasks on a scrum board. For a detailed description of this workflow, see Scrum.
