JIRA Installation on Synolgy NAS – Part 1 – Introduction

logoJIRAPNG[1]I am planning on starting up some software development work with a small team. One of the main things that small teams seem to forget is that they still need to stay organized. One of the ways we stay organized in the team we have at work is with Atlassian’s set of software development tools. All of them integrate nicely together and include a wiki (Confluence), git repository server (Stash / Bitbucket) and an excellent issue tracker (JIRA).

We are planning on using Bitbucket for our development because it will be closed-source and perfectly designed for small teams to be free (up to 5 users) with unlimited private repositories and completely fully-featured. JIRA just made sense for keeping track of issues alongside Bitbucket as they integrate together very well. The versatility of JIRA when compared to the other open-source offerings on the market is just unmatched. The closest I found was BugGenie – it included a wiki, which JIRA doesn’t by default as Confluence is a separate product that integrates. It was close, but just not quite what I was looking for, even though it was really easy to install by comparison as we will soon find out.
