Description: JIRA Agile (formerly GreenHopper) is a JIRA plugin that leverages JIRA`s customizable issues and flexible workflow to provide an Agile project management system. The plugin allows agile teams to create user stories, perform estimation, and track sprint backlogs.

JIRA requires a relational database in order to store issue data. If the user is setting up a completely new JIRA installation, users have the choice of configuring a connection to an internal, embedded, H2 database, or an external connection to a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, or Oracle database. The vendor states that the H2 database should only be used for evaluation purposes and strongly recommends connecting JIRA to one of the aforementioned TRM-approved external databases.

Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
