Create programs


The old navigation will be removed from Jira Align in early 2024.

A program, also called a release train in the Scaled Agile Framework, includes a set of product management and development teams that work from a shared backlog and coordinate team of teams meetings. Teams within a program usually only work on products and projects for their own program, though occasionally might coordinate work with other programs.

Pay attention that deleting a program permanently removes it from the system. Be sure all work items were removed from this program because they will not be accessible after the program is deleted. 

To create a program:

  1. If you’re using the new navigation, select the Settings gear Gear in the top navigation bar. If you’re using the old navigation, select Administration in the left Nav menu.
  2. On the left side of the page, select Programs in the Setup section.
  3. On the toolbar (top-right of the page), click the Add Program button.
  4. Complete the required fields, and then click Save & Close.

Note: Additionally, select Solution from the corresponding drop-down menu. A solution is used to group programs when a multi-program consolidated view is required routinely. For example, if you need to report on Business and Consumer Enablers as a consolidated program, then you may create a solution Enablers that is a program of both. Solutions are not permitted to be assigned any work items. These must be assigned to one or more unique programs. Use solutions to filter the reports easily rather than to add every associated child program to get the overall result.
