YouTrack Standalone 2019.2 Help

Create a Project

To start tracking issues for a new product or service, create a new project.

When you create a project, the following operations are performed automatically:

  • You are granted the Project Admin role in the project.

  • You are set as the Project owner in the general project settings.

  • You are added to the project team. This assignment grants you any roles that are assigned to members of the project team in the project.

  • You are added to the set of values for the Assignee field for issues in the project.

  • A saved search with the name Unassigned in <project ID> is automatically generated with your user account as its owner. This saved search uses the query project: <project ID> #{Unassigned}. You are automatically subscribed to notifications when new issues are created in the project.

    You can access and update this saved search at any time in your YouTrack profile. For more information, see Tags and Saved Searches.

To create a project:

  1. Click the Projects link in the main menu.
