Item

  • Individual building block of a project

  • Comprised of customizable fields

All items have a global ID, a unique ID, and an item type that's determined by an organization administrator.

Note

Baselines, source folders, risks, risk analyses, reviews, and test groups aren't items, so they don’t have an item type and a global or unique ID.

Several places in Jama Connect allow you to 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.

Container items
