Jama Connect User Guide


Items are the building blocks of Jama. Projects are made up of items. Items are made up of fields. Items can be containers (sets, folders, components or parent items) or documents (features, requirements, test cases, tasks, defects). 

For container items, you can select View next to the container title that displays details of that container.


This can be helpful for a number of reasons:

  • Folders can be configured to have attachments; this is the only way to view them.

  • Subscribe yourself or others to this container item to receive email notifications when this container changes.

  • Edit the name or description of the container itself.



There are several places in Jama Connect where you can see a quick preview of an item without opening it in the center panel. For example, right-click on an item in the Explorer Tree and select Preview item.
