As per the standup conversation today, about how to filter against
design and development related jiras, I did a quick look through Jira.
There are probably several ways to accomplish this, below is a list of
a few options
1) Leave a tag in the title, description or comment field. I did this
for the 0.5 bug parade. The problem with this is that if you spell
the tag wrong it won't work and it would have to be relatively unique
so as to avoid false positives.
2) Create a new issue type for the design team. For example instead of
filing tasks and sub-tasks they could file design-tasks and design-sub-
tasks. The problem with this is that the initial conversion process
may be difficult.
3) Create new components. A development and a design component, all
jiras would have to have one of these attached. The problem here is
that you would have to remember to mark it with the appropriate
developer/design component plus the actual component it affects. Also
I'm not sure this is an appropriate use of components.
I'm currently leaning towards option 2. I think it is a cleaner
solution, won't add extra info to all of the jiras. Also, we will only
need to update the design jiras, instead of both design and
Are there are any thoughts, suggestions, or recommendations for other
