Atlassian Open DevOps Product Guide
Everything you need to know about using Open DevOps
A brief overview of Open DevOps
In this guide, we break down the products, features, and concepts included in Atlassian Open DevOps, as well as define key terms and use cases.
What is Open DevOps?
Designed for high-performing teams to develop and operate high-quality software, Atlassian Open DevOps is the foundation to build your toolchain with the best tools from any vendor. Open DevOps comes with a unique configuration of our four flagship products, tightly integrated and connected out-of-the-box: Jira Software, Bitbucket, Confluence, and Opsgenie.
Our open approach
We believe teams perform best with a toolchain that is tailored to their way of working. You can stick with the default Atlassian products or swap them out for other popular tools such as GitHub, GitLab, or Jenkins.
Plan, track, and automate work as a team to ship world-class software.
Collaborate on code, test, and deploy with speed and precision.
Create, collaborate, and organize all your documents in one place.
Streamline on-call and incident management to stay up and running 24/7.
Key terms to know
Integrating refers to linking a tool to a site. For example, GitHub becomes an integration when a site admin links it to their site. This action makes GitHub available to connect with any project within the site.
Connecting refers to linking a tool to a project. For example, a GitHub integration becomes a connection when a team member links a repository to their project. As long as GitHub is integrated with the site, it can be connected to any project.
This is a generic term referring to a set of tools that a team uses to plan, build, ship and operate software.
Automation refers to our no-code rule builder that enables you to create if-this-then-that-rules based on events in Jira and across your tools.
A Crucible user is by definition any user account in the Crucible system with the 'use' permission, i.e. anyone who can view the site while logged in. Unlimited 'anonymous users' are permitted on all licenses.
Jira Software is an agile planning tool, while Open DevOps is a framework for building your DevOps toolchain that starts with a few of our products integrated out-of-the-box. Within Open DevOps, Jira Software is transformed from a planning tool to the central source of truth for work across all your tools.
As an existing customer, you can sign up for Open DevOps via the website to get all the Atlassian products at once. Alternatively, you can get the products one-by-one within Jira Software. Either way, your account and bill will not be affected until you choose to upgrade to a paid plan for each product.
Open DevOps is designed to be—you guessed it—open. We offer our own products for free to get you started, but you can easily swap them out for the tools you already use, including GitHub, GitLab, Jenkins, CircleCI, and more.
User access and pricing are managed on an individual product level, so you're never locked into an all-inclusive plan paying for seats and features that you don't need.
