What do you think of JIRA?

Primary Use Case: We used JIRA for: Writing down requirements and stories. Analysis Creating tasks, subtasks, and defects. It also helped tracking the sprint process more efficiently. • Improvements to My Organization: It gave us control over all test artifacts in one place, along with easy traceability, mapping between stories, bugs, test cases, and test cycles. • Valuable Features: The traceability mapping feature is something that became very useful, especially during releases and bug fixes. The creation of epics and stories/defects is also very useful and simple. • Room for Improvement: It should have its own repository for test case creation, so that one does not have to resort to third-party tools and plugins. • Use of Solution: One to three years.
