When you create a new project in YouTrack, you select a template that is used to configure the project. The settings for each project template are pre-configured. This means that you can create a project and start working with it right away. After you create the project, you can modify the pre-configured settings at any time to match the actual workflow and process for your team.
The templates themselves are read-only. You cannot edit the default configuration. The ability to create your own templates is not currently supported in YouTrack.
The following project templates are available:
|Default||Creates a standard issue-tracking project. All of the standard issue fields and default workflows are attached to the project automatically. |
For more information, see Default Project Template.
|Scrum||Creates a project that is pre-configured to follow the Scrum development methodology. Two agile boards are created for the project: one for development and another for project management. A set of workflows that automate issue tracking on a Scrum board are attached to the project automatically. |
For more information, see Scrum Project Template.
|Kanban||Creates a project that is pre-configured to follow Kanban or any other lean development methodology. A pre-configured Kanban board is created automatically. |
For more information, see Kanban Project Template.
