“For the past year, I’ve been trying to find a solution to automatically promote configuration changes from our test Jira server to the production server. At first, I tried with Project Configurator – it had good reviews on the marketplace and an affordable price. I had an excellent initial experience, I was able to import some configuration, and there were few errors in the log – nothing too serious. It turned out (end-user complaints) that only some parts of the configuration were successfully imported while others were not (I assume due to the logged errors), so in other words, the partial import broke my production server! It took me nearly a week to track down and clean up all the pieces, so instead of helping it created a lot more work for me, and now I have zero confidence in it and just stopped using it. I met with Botron team at the Summit at San Jose and they assured me that Configuration Manager for Jira is designed to prevent such cases and my production system will be modified only if everything is successful. This, along with the integrity check created a lot of work for me at the beginning, but now I understand all the error and that was occurring in the other tool. After a month of trial, we purchased the add-on, and now I am saving at least 8 hours a week from my time and have confidence in the automated promotion. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to save time and have confidence in their tech.”
