OBJECTIVE
The objective of this document is provide users with a ready reference for the Risk, Assumption, Issue &
Dependency templates in JIRA and how the same can be used.

INTRODUCTION
Risks, Assumptions, Issues & Dependencies within a project are normally tracked using spreadsheets. We
have implemented the RAID template in JIRA so that Project and Risk Managers can use this template as
a dynamic tool to effectively record, analyze, monitor, manage and report project risks, assumptions,
issues and dependencies.

RISK ISSUE TYPE TEMPLATE
A Risk is any specific event which might occur and thus have a negative impact on a project or
program.
The description of the various fields in the Risk Template is as follows:
3.1 CREATE ISSUE SCREEN
Page 4 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Threshold Value: This field determines the risk exposure thresholds that indicate when a risk becomes
unacceptable and triggers the execution of a risk mitigation plan or a contingency plan. User will have to
select the Threshold Value from the drop-down list.
Summary: Summary of the Risk reported.
Page 5 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Description: Clearly articulate the risk with the condition and the consequence.
Reporter: Person responsible for tracking and addressing the risk. By default the Username of the user
who logs a risk will be populated in this field.
Assignee: Person responsible for resolving the risk. The Assignee can be selected from the drop-down list
which includes names of all members of the project. If the Assignee name does not exist in the dropdown, then a request should be raised for adding the user in the project.
Risk Category/ Risk Impacted Area: This field give the mapping of risk categories with the risk
sources. This is field is a cascaded select list.
The following table illustrates a high-level classification of the risk categories and the risk sources it can be
mapped to.
RISK-CATEGORY

Customers, End-users, Sponsors,
Politics, Morale, Communication

Risk Identification Date: Date when the risk was identified.
Page 7 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Risk Owner: Person who is responsible for all the risks. The Risk Owner can be selected from one of the
following values in the drop-down list:
 Customer
 TechM
Page 8 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Probability: How likely the risk event or condition is to occur. The Probability can be selected from one of
the following values from the drop-down list:
 High
 Medium
 Low
Impact: Extent of what would happen if the risk materialized. The Impact can be selected from one of the
following values from the drop-down list:
 High
 Medium
 Low
Rank: Rank of the risk based on risk exposure rating. This should be manually entered on each risk issue
after the sorting of the risk exposure values in the issue navigator page.
E.g. the risk with the highest value for risk exposure will have the rank 1.
Risk Handling Approach: This field describes the approach followed for handling the risk. The Risk
Handling Approach can be selected from one of the following values from the drop-down list:
 Avoid : Changing the scope while still meeting the user‟s needs so that the risk is avoided
 Transfer : Minimize the impact of the risk by transferring it to another project, team, organization or
individual
 Mitigate : Mention the specific action plan to reduce the probability of occurrence of the risk and/or the
impact of the risk; Risk mitigation plans are developed and implemented as needed to proactively
reduce risks before they become issues
 Accept: Live with the consequences if the risk were actually to occur. We accept the risk and take no
further action.

JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Mitigation Plan: Provide Mitigation Plan in this field if risk handling approach is mitigation. This field is to
be enabled only if the Risk Handling Approach value is “Mitigate”.
Contingency Plan: Provide Contingency plan if risk handling approach is mitigation or accept. Contingency
Plan is mandatory if Risk Exposure value is greater than Threshold.
Action: Mention the action to be taken based on the risk handling approach e.g. mitigation actions,
contingency planning actions.
Due Date: The date by which the Issue should be resolved. Due Date should be greater than the Risk
Created date.

JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Action Status: This field indicates the status of the action taken. The Action Status can be one of the
following values from the drop-down list:
Page 11 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
 To Be Started
 In Progress
 Completed
Risk Status: This is determined by the workflow steps.
Planned Effort/Cost needed to Mitigate Risk: Effort (in terms of Hours spent)/cost needed to mitigate
specified risk.

3.2 VIEW ISSUE SCREEN AFTER REQUIREMENTS CAPTURED AND ISSUE CREATED
Risk Exposure: This is a calculated and non-editable field which will be displayed on the screen once the Risk issue
type is created. This calculated field is based on the values selected for the Probability and Impact fields. The risk
Page 13 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
exposure values can be viewed in the Issue Navigator by adding a new column in the Issue Navigator and can be
arranged in the descending order for assigning the rank.
Click on Edit to enter the Residual Probability and the Residual Impact.

3.3 EDIT ISSUE SCREEN
Page 15 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
In Addition to the fields present in the Create Issue screen (Excluding Probability and Impact), the following fields
need to be populated in the Edit Issue screen once the issue is created:
Residual Probability: This filed indicates the Risk Probability after implementing the identified risk action plan.
This is a drop-down field which is editable and can be changed during the progress of the issue. This field will not be
present at the time of the issue creation. The user should manually change the values after the issue is created by
editing the issue. This value can be changed during the workflow cycle as well.
Residual Risk Impact: This field indicates the Risk Impact after implementing the identified risk action plan. This
is a drop-down field which is editable and can be change during the progress of the issue. This field will not be
present at the time of the issue creation. The user should manually change the values after the issue is created by
editing the issue. This value can be changed during the workflow cycle as well.

3.4 VIEW ISSUE SCREEN AFTER EDITING ISSUE
Page 17 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
Residual Risk Exposure: This is a non-editable field whose value is calculated based on the values for the
Residual Probability and Residual Impact fields. The Residual Risk Exposure values can be viewed in the view issue
screen after the issue is edited. It can also be viewed in the issue navigator by adding the column in the issue
navigator.

3.5 CUSTOMIZING OF ISSUE NAVIGATOR
You can customize your Issue Navigator by choosing: which columns (i.e. issue fields) to display and how
many rows (i.e. issues) to display.
 To customize the issue navigator: In the issue navigator page from the 'Tools' menu at the right of
the screen (above the search results), select 'Configure Columns'.
 The following page will be displayed.
Page 19 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
 To add a column to the list: Select the issue field name from the drop-down box titled ‘Add New
Column’ and click the 'Add' button. The column will appear as the right-most column in the list.
Page 20 of 64
JIRA RAID USER MANUAL
You can then position the column where desired by using the arrow icons (In our case select Risk
Exposure and Residual Risk Exposure)
After configuring the issue navigator columns and selecting the Filter from the dashboard, the issues will
be displayed. Click on the Risk Exposure field as highlighted to set the risks in the descending order for
Ranking the issues.
Once the Issues have been sorted, edit the issues to enter the rank into each issue.
