Jama Connect User Guide


Items are the building blocks of Jama Connect. 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). 

All items have an item type that is determined by an organization administrator, a global ID and a unique ID. Baselines, source folders, risks, risk analyses, reviews and test groups are not items.

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


Select View in order to:

  • Open container attachments.

  • Edit the name or description of the container itself.


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


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.
