Easy on-boarding and off-boarding with JIRA Table Grid Editor

 

While existing asset management platforms are powerful, they are also expensive, hard to use, and bloated with features. Whether it’s a trouble ticket, new hire requisition or a purchase order, JIRA + the Table Grid Editor make it easy to build an effective history on every asset. Use JIRA’s powerful workflow functionality and the Table Grid Editor’s flexible tables for perfect customization to your specific asset management process.

 

You may use the Table Grid Editor to create an on/off-boarding application with asset management. 

The use case is as follows

  1. Service desk receives a request to board a new staff member
  2. Service desk member (John) creates a new issue of type ‘Staff’
  3. He/she enters the required fields such as name, function address and so on from the request
  4. When the data is reviewed, the issue is progressed into status ‘Onboarding’
  5. John selects the appropriate onboarding list from a list of options
  6. The onboarding action grid is automatically initialized with the appropriate actions – all in status open
  7. John can now keep track of items which need to be configured, and or assign actions to other people in the team
  8. Once that all actions have been completed, John progresses the status of the issue to ‘Active’
  9. The day the new staff member starts, all equipment is ready. For each asset, a new asset record is registered

Configuration details

1. Lookup tables

  • Boarding lists

The boarding list allows to group activities per function/department …
Setting up the lookup list allows limiting the options when entering data

gd.columns = listname
gd.tablename = boardinglist
gd.ds = jira
 
col.listname= List name
col.listname.type = string
col.listname.required = true
  •  Boarding actions

The boarding action list all actions that should be taken when onboarding or offboarding a staff member.

gd.columns = isummary, respgroup,  iphase
gd.tablename = boardingactions
gd.db = jira
 
col.isummary = Action summary
col.isummary.type = string
col.isummary.required = true
 
col.respgroup = Responsible
col.respgroup.type = list
col.respgroup.list.size = 3
col.respgroup.name1 = IT
col.respgroup.name2 = HR
col.respgroup.name3 = Fac

gd.query.columns = isummary
gd.query.parameters = customfield:13091
gd.query.ds = jira
gd.query.keepOnRefresh = Modified
 
  
col.isummary = Action
col.isummary.type = string
col.isummary.editable = false
 
col.iassignee = Responsible
col.iassignee.type = list
col.iassignee.query = select pu.display_name, pu.user_name FROM cwd_membership pm inner join cwd_user pu on pm.child_name = pu.user_name where parent_name = 'jira-administrators'
col.iassignee.query.ds = jira
 
col.istatus = Status
col.istatus.type = list
col.istatus.list.size = 2
col.istatus.name1 = Open
col.istatus.value1 = O
col.istatus.name2 = Done
col.istatus.value2 = D
col.istatus.width=100
col.istatus.defaultValue = O
  •  Offboarding grid

gd.query.columns = isummary
gd.query.parameters = customfield:13091
gd.query.ds = jira
 
col.isummary = Action
col.isummary.type = string
col.isummary.editable = false
 
col.iassignee = Responsible
col.iassignee.type = list
col.iassignee.query = select pu.user_name, pu.display_name FROM cwd_membership pm inner join cwd_user pu on pm.child_name = pu.user_name where parent_name = 'jira-administrators'
col.iassignee.query.ds = jira
 
col.istatus = Status
col.istatus.type = list
col.istatus.list.size = 2
col.istatus.name1 = Open
col.istatus.value1 = O
col.istatus.name2 = Done
col.istatus.value2 = D
col.istatus.width=100
