Administration | Agile Project Management | SpiraPlan


SpiraPlan has an extensive administration capability that can be accessed using just a web-browser. To reduce the burden on IT staff, you can delegate project administration to different users, allowing project managers to be self-sufficient.

System Administration

Once SpiraPlan® is set up on your web server it can be fully administered and maintained using only a web browser. No need to install complicated software or have IT staff involved every time you wish to create new project or add a user to the system.

This is the same regardless of whether you are deploying on-premise or in our cloud environment. SpiraPlan allows you to easily create, edit, copy, and delete projects using a web-based interface. In addition, you have the option of creating a new project using the customized settings of an existing template project.

Project Administration

You can delegate administrators of SpiraPlan to reduce the burden on your system administrators. That way each project have a set of owners that configure the projects, setup workflows and perform other project administrative tasks on a self-service basis:

User Management

SpiraPlan® allows you to easily create, edit and make inactive users using a web-browser. In addition you can import user profiles from any LDAP compatible directory server (e.g. Microsoft ActiveDirectory). Once imported, SpiraPlan® will authenticate those users against that server, removing the need for users to manage passwords in multiple places.

Planning Settings

SpiraPlan is designed to have sensible out of the box default options to make deployment easy, but for more advanced users, you can configure the behavior of system to match your software development process.

For example, customers may have different working days or may want to estimate based on a different number of “available” working hours per day. You can also change the system to work in a more automated mode that is simpler for smaller, agile processes or a more prescription mode where every workflow change needs to be done by hand (critical for customers working in regulated industries such as healthcare or finance).

System Configuration

SpiraPlan is designed to fit into your enterprise environment and support your enterprise IT policies. It gives the administrator control of the default timezone and region/language settings as well as the retention period for log messages and other configuration data:

SpiraPlan also allows you to configure the security settings to meet your IT security policies:
