Create community of practice team


The old navigation will be removed from Jira Align in early 2024.
Learn more about the upcoming changes

A community of practice is a group of people who share a concern or passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. 

Note: This type of team can still be created in Jira Align and associated with existing communities of practice for a short time. We do not recommend associating this type of team with a community of practice, as we have removed the Communities of Practice summary page. For more details, see our removal announcement for the Collaboration module

Create a community of practice team on the teams page:

If you’re using the new navigation:

  1. Select Teams in the top navigation bar and select any team.
  2. On the sidebar, select More items in the list of options.
  3. Select Teams; the teams page displays.

If you’re using the old navigation:

  1. Select Team from the left Nav menu.
  2. Under the Manage section, select Teams; the teams page displays.

To create a community of practice team:

  4. Select the team’s owner from the corresponding drop-down menu.
