Re: Jira Offboarding December 13 – Jira End of Life


Dear Jira Users,

As you may be aware, Atlassian has announced that support for Jira Server will end on February 15, 2024. As a result, Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration (EASI) will be moving its teams and partner divisions to the Azure DevOps platform as part of the Jira Migration Project.

Azure DevOps provides managers and users with more visibility into work effort, resulting in improved workload management, expectation management and improved insights for strategic decision making. This platform also aligns with U of T’s technical roadmap and future evolution with Microsoft.

We anticipate that all EASI teams will have transitioned to Azure DevOps by October 31, and we will work to onboard your division between September 30 and December 13. Throughout this migration, we will provide ongoing support, and licensing costs will be covered for EASI-related projects. Non EASI-related projects can be moved to Jira Cloud or Azure DevOps.

In preparation for the February 2024 deadline, we will be booking a meeting with you to provide an overview of the project. Please stay tuned for an Outlook invite that will be sent shortly.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact Laurel Williams, Project Lead, at laurel.williams@utoronto.ca

Thank you for your support in making this successful transition.
