How-To: Beta installation

For our valued beta users, here is a short tutorial on how to install beta application in Jira.

Beta versions are pre-release

Installing a beta application in Jira Cloud, such as our innovative AI-driven Agile assistant, Archy, is a straightforward process that can significantly enhance your project management capabilities. This tutorial will guide you through each step to ensure a smooth installation and setup.

Step 1: Access Jira Cloud

Log In: Start by logging into your Jira Cloud account. You’ll need administrative privileges to install new apps, so ensure you have the right access level.

Step 2: Navigate to “Apps”

Find “Apps”: Once logged in, look for the “Apps” option in the top navigation menu. Click on it to access the App Management section.

Step 3: Install App Using URL

Find “Settings”: Within the “Manage apps” section, look for a settings icon or a similar option that opens up additional settings or actions.

Click on Settings to configura options on application installation sources:

Click “Apply” and you will see new option “Upload app”.

Select “Upload app”: You might see an option labeled “Upload app”, “Install app from URL”, or something similar under the settings or actions menu. Click on this to proceed.

Enter App URL: In the provided field, enter the URL given to you for the beta application. This link is generated on Atlassian marketplace for non-public apps ( apps that can’t be found on Marketplace, as they have not been made public ). We use this feature to better control how our users install beta application version. URL for beta app will be provided in email that you will receive once you’ve applied for beta user access.

Confirm Installation: After entering the URL, there may be a confirmation step where you’ll review the app permissions or other details. Review these carefully and proceed if everything is correct.

And that is it !
