“You have a Jira?”
“You need a Jira, first”
“Open a Jira”
“You need a Jira for that too”
“That Jira is on the wrong board, plus you need to email _this_ form first”
Jira, Jira, Jira-fucking-jira, AAAHHHHHHHHHHH, STOP!

My job appears to be nothing more than an abstraction layer around Jira. A leaky abstraction

    A Jira project?
    A Jira board?
    A Jira user?

    @Codex404 in this case ignorance is bliss. If you don’t know, enjoy your life without the knowledge. Because once you know, you can’t ever go back

    @pingu it’s two tickets, involves to separate teams.

    @brettski I use Jira daily and am the one who set it up at my current project. But "a jira" isn't anything.

    @Codex404 sure it is. It seems to be a word which has replaced “ticket”. I don’t make this shit up, I just exist in it!

    @brettski just tell your colleagues a jira isn't something. Can you imagine the Jira documentation if they called everything "a jira"

    Apparently Jira is infrastructure. Terraform has a community provider for it so tickets can be automated. I really want to make a terraform template that chooses a random number for how many tickets to send and a random string to send.

    Automated fuckery!

    @Codex404 same generalisation as with linux.. ppl use jira as a jira ticket term, if they are referring to anything else jira related they tell explicitly.. at least around here..

    Why is this literally my job. My entire job is to make things work with Jira, even if I have to defeat the point of having it...
