If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Sorry - It was the best pun I could afford today...

Jira a wonderful system for bug & issue tracking... However if you take a couple of days off you get buried with tickets. Most of the tickets I have come across are asking me why I haven't resolved an issue raised by another ticket, which was raised by another ticket and on... Much digital digging turns out that it was an issue that I had fixed just after it came to light marked it on the fix sheet. However as it was marked as fixed to make someone happy a fault had to be raised in Jira, which generated a 'number' which had to have the 'code' applied to it generated by the 'Zephyr' thing.
Good Grief! I spent over an hour to find I had done what was the cause of this thing to work 'Smarter, not harder'
I had better end there tickets are piling up!!
Count yourself lucky - where I work we have 4 separate ticketing systems some of which vaguely interact with the others and the same ticket is usually reproduced on at least two of the systems, each of these systems holding some of the 'truth' for a ticket.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
Same here. They really need to make finer grained settings for email than all/nothing. Clarification edits on a ticket assigned to me, or "how do I test this" comments from QA are useful email that I want. Organizational edits (eg setting an epic, tagging a bug as in the web site vs a mobile app, etc) are rather meh. State transitions are context sensitive - I don't need an email about transitions caused by something I did (eg creating a branch for the bug, creating a PR, merging the PR, etc); but one's for activity from other people can be useful (eg QA bumped a change from test to todo because they found a problem) - and complex enough that the level of control I'd like really would probably be a phase 2/10 feature. Others are utterly obnoxious, I don't need 20 email's for each of the 20 open items I've got being moved from Sprint N to Sprint N+1 because N was closed, at most a single email about the new sprint listing all of the affected items would be useful, and at that since it affecting everything in the sprint is a given I don't even really need the list.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
