Project Categories

Project Categories are a great way of categorizing Jira Projects based on their purpose or what team they belong to. Over time, you may want to review the available Project Categories as part of your routine maintenance initiatives.

With the Project Categories smart table in Optimizer, you can now view and manage all these configurations in one place.
