Ideal Forms for JIRA

Ideal Forms for JIRA is a custom forms engine and designer tool that easily allows you to create 100% use case specific user interfaces linked to JIRA data.

Most of the time the standard JIRA user interfaces provide exactly what is required for the JIRA use case. Sometimes however, it is desired to expose JIRA information using alternate user interfaces to help with ease of use. For example, one specific user group involved in a Project doesn't like the complexity of the stock user interface. Ideal Forms can simple expose the fields that group needs to interact with.

JIRA can be used to model most any process in which the Project->Issue->Fields become the data model and the JIRA workflow structures the 'how'. Using JIRA in this manner essentially boxes JIRA into the role of the security platform, the database and the process monitor. Ideal Forms can then be used to tailor a user experience around the specific use case; in this approach, users never know they're using JIRA on the back end. Any use case currently using MS Sharepoint or MS Access can likely be constructed using JIRA and Ideal Forms.
