Creating a Feed

Let's practice! 💪

If you don't know what feeds and announcements are, click here.

Firstly, log in as a user with the Jira Administrators global permission.

The first thing to do as admin starting to use the application is to create the first Feed. To do this, go to the Feed tab in the Top Menu and select from the list: Create feed. 

After clicking "Create feed" a new window will show up, in which the administrator can create a Feed in four steps.

Contents:

Recent FeedsList of the five most recently created feeds
Create feedStart the process of creating a feed
View all feedsA view of all created feeds

Step 1 - Feed Type 

At this point you can specify:

  • Type (Global or Project) - the feed should include all users or only those who have access to the selected project,
  • System (Jira Software or Jira Service Management),
  • Place - where you want the Feed to appear (Top Bar, Dialog, etc.) 

Step 2 - Appearance 

This part is responsible for:

  • Feed name & description - the name will be visible to users, and description only for administrators,
  • Background & text color -  colors can distinguish announcements which will be included in this feed, 
  • Response buttons - buttons for users, 
  • Page size 

Note: If the "None" button layout is selected, announcements will not collect feedback from users.

Step 3 - Permissions 

A very important part during creation, in which administrators determine:

  • Audience -  the target group of recipients of announcements,
  • Manage feed - users who will manage this feed.

Step 4 - Feedback 

The application allows for collecting feedback from users. 
Admins can control the results of announcements.

On this page, you should specify users who will be able to view answers to the announcements.

Step 5 - Add content 

This step is used for adding your first Announcement to the Feed. There is no need to create it right now - admins can add as many Announcements as they want whenever it's needed.
