Introduction

In addition to different configuration elements and apps, Power Admin for Jira allows you to browse all your projects, understand how they are used in filters, agile boards and dashboards, and search for projects based on different criteria.

Projects can be found by name, current or previous keys, or id. You can filter your projects by Type, Category, or Lead. In this way, you can quickly find the projects you need.

You can find complete information about a project and its dependent configuration elements and manage all of the projects on your Jira.

When Power Admin evaluates the usage of a project, it detects and presents the following configuration elements:

  • Filters where your projects are used.

  • Agile Boards where your projects are used.

  • Dashboards which use gadgets where the projects are referenced.

You can also rename projects inline and export all of their dependent agile boards, filters and dashboards.

Locations allow you to see the configuration elements where your projects are in use and find out how exactly they are used.

When you search for one or more projects, you will see a list of projects with their key, project type, category, lead, issue count and and last issue update.

Project filters

You can make your search for projects even more precise and fast by using filters which allow you to filter further the projects. You can refine your list with projects based on their type, category and lead.

Find project information and usage

To find the usage of a project:

  1. On Power Admin's Landing page select Project from the drop-down, type project name/key and start your search.

  2. On the Search results page, click on the name of a project.

  3. Then, the Project Usage Report page appears.

Project usage page

Usage

You can see the following project information: project type, category, lead, key and last issue update date (last date when an issue from the project was updated).

Power Admin also provides the list of dependent agile boards, filters and dashboards where the project is referenced/used.

Actions

The actions available for projects are Rename, Configure, Edit and Export.

Rename is a safe activity which means that the name of the project will change in all filters, agile boards and dashboard gadgets where the project is referenced by name.

You can export the list of dependent configuration elements using the Export button.

For now, actions to a project’s dependent configuration elements are not available and that’s why the Actions column in the dependencies table is empty.

Project key history

You can view a list of all keys used for your project previously.

Change your project key

You can change the key of a project in just two steps from the project page in Power Admin. Also, the filters, boards and dashboards which reference the project by one of its historical keys are listed on the project page.

Locations

Review in detail, the locations where projects are used. In Locations, you will find detailed information regarding where and how your project is used in agile boards, filters, and dashboards.
