This documentation is for Insight for Server/Data Center only.

Insight for Jira Cloud is a full-fledged product, but it also has a number of notable differences from Insight for Server/Data Center. Let's walk through the features that are in the product and what's upcoming.

Objects and object modeling

Object schemas

Use object schemas to organize the structure of your object types, objects, and attributes. Use inheritance to share attributes with child object types.

Object schema templates

Create an object schema from a template that contains a pre-created object schema, object types, and objects.

Object types

Use objects to store information of any kind. 

(tick)

Roles

Use roles to manage permissions for different Jira users and groups.

(tick)

Attributes

Data and data modeling

Integrate with Jira

Integrate between Insight and Atlassian Jira.

  • If using Insight for Jira Cloud, we must use the "Asset field" to integrate with Jira, which does not offer the same level of functionality as the integration between Insight Server and Jira.
  • Assets currently require manual synchronization between Jira and Insight for Jira Cloud. In the future, this will be automated.
(tick)

Import and synchronization

Import data from other systems into Insight, or synchronize information between Insight and another system.

In Progress

Export data

Export data from Insight as a backup, or to be used in other systems.

Use the object graph to view the relationship and hierarchy between different objects and object types.

Object search

Search for objects using their name or attributes.

Use IQL (the Insight Query language) to create a powerful and dynamic object search.

Placeholders are not yet supported in Insight for Jira Cloud, with the exception of the Assign assets feature within Asset Type Configuration.

Make changes to a large number of objects at once.

(tick)
