Advocating Adoption: Best Practices for User-Friendly Jira Configurations
One of the most difficult tasks for an Atlassian Administrator is user adoption, training, and enablement. Most Jira admins have experienced some form of resistance to change when implementing Jira.
During this talk, I'll share best practices that led to a speedy adoption of Jira at AppDynamics, as well as specific workflow configurations that make Jira more approachable. You'll learn success strategies that you can take back to your organization that promote organic adoption and growth.
Are you Ready to Rumble? Let's Migrate Some Jira Data
Migrating data from one Jira or Confluence to another can be frustrating and painful if not planned properly. We've managed 40+ successful migrations over the last 6 years at Cisco, and want to share the tips and tricks we learned along the way.
Discover how we handled the migration of Jira and Confluence instances with the right mix of people, processes, and tools. Get a look at our own code and migration questionnaire to help your own future migrations.
Big Bang And Beyond: Migrating Between Server and Cloud
Whether you have an on-premise deployment of Jira like Server or Data Center, or Jira Cloud, starting from scratch is not always an option. On the other hand, the idea of migrating to another platform can be daunting as well.
In this session, we'll dive into the key considerations for your migration to keep data stable and consistent. Learn about the pros and cons between the two platforms, your migration options, and the best ways to get them done successfully and safely.
Jira & Ansible: Streamlining Jira Server Administration for the Enterprise
In 2017, Yelp had over 40 Jira administrators. Their environment had hundreds of orphaned workflows, screens, and schemes with very little oversight into who was doing what with their Jira Server instance.
Their team turned to Ansible to empower Yelp's engineers to create and archive projects, update categories, project leads, keys, and archive projects without having access to administrative rights and sensitive functions. Learn how they secured and simplified their environment, reduced turnaround time for Jira requests, and made their lives as admins much easier (and how you can, too!)
Embracing Jira Cloud: Tips from an ex-Server admin
Most long-time Jira Server Admins, like myself, were skeptical of Jira Cloud. But now, I'm a proud Jira Cloud convert.
Join me on my journey of migrating to Jira Cloud and learn the tips and tricks that helped me survive and thrive in a cloud world. I'll share the techniques to keeping your instance running smoothly (even when you can't log into the system to troubleshoot issues, restart it, or see where slowdowns are occurring). And, you'll learn how to navigate critical concerns areas around information assurance and security on the cloud.
Cherry-Picking Apps: Making the Most of the Atlassian Marketplace
Apps strive to make our lives easier—less repetitive tasks, manual processes, and mouse clicks. But, with the ever-growing number of apps in the Atlassian Marketplace, how do you choose which app is best for your teams?
Join Gal Fatal from HP as he shares key parameters to consider when choosing apps, and why it's important to invest time and effort when doing so. Learn about the approaches and practical tips to making better choices so you can 'shop' smarter in the Atlassian Marketplace.

Leave this talk with the knowledge on how to strike the perfect balance when extending the power of Jira.
