Product Management Dashboard Installation

Product Management Dashboard LogoProduct Management Dashboard® Installation, Start & Technical notes

The Product Management Dashboard was developed as a plugin for JIRA so that the entire product development can take place in one system and no additional costs for hardware or administration arise in the company. JIRA is developed by Atlassian and is the No. 1 development tool for teams and is extremely widespread internationally.

Technical notes & requirements

In order to get the full power for your product and product management with the Product Management Dashboard, you will need your own self-hosted JIRA, which can be purchased starting at $10 one-time payment and install it as described here.

The JIRA installation on Windows including database is described in the following article.

The Product Management Dashboard runs:

  • With JIRA versions from 7.3.0 and above and the JIRA versions currently released by us (more on this in the section "Select the appropriate JIRA version")
  • On all JIRA servers that are operated locally or in the cloud, i.e. it is NOT currently offered for Atlassian's own cloud offerings due to data protection reasons and due to the considerable scope that goes far beyond typical JIRA plug-ins.


The installation of the Product Management Dashboard for JIRA is using the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM) which is included in JIRA.

Proceed as follows:

  1. Log on to JIRA as administrator
  2. Then click "Add-Ons"
  3. Then click on "Find new apps" and search for: Product Management Dashboard
