Subject: Issue Tracking System for XACML TC

The XACML Issue Tracking Project has been created and can be accessed at:



Each Member of the TC should have received an email with their login information. I have created accounts corresponding to your OASIS login name. Once you log in, please change your password to correspond to your OASIS password.


I am in the process of setting everyone’s privileges.


Below is an overview from the TC Handbook. For more information, the JIRA User’s Guide is online here: http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/v3.13.1/introduction.html


You are the second TC to be assigned a Project in this new system. Please let me know if you encounter any problems or if something isn’t clear. And of course I’d love to hear any suggestions you might have!








OASIS-hosted Issues Tracking System

OASIS has now installed a JIRA issues tracking system that will be made available to Technical Committees upon request. While any of the existing methods are still viable, Technical Committees may want to consider migrating their existing method to a new JIRA Project.



In accordance with the OASIS Technical Committee Process Policy, Technical Committee Members have read/write access.  Access control is at the Project level. All Projects are publicly-viewable.



Each Technical Committee will be a unique Project and identified by Technical Committee name.



Components are used to group a set of related issues. Components may identify Subcommittees or unique work products (that is, specifications or other document types) within a Technical Committee.



There are four (4) roles defined:

TC Chair

TC Editor

TC Member




There is currently only one workflow available: Technical Committee Issues. Additional workflows can be created based on Technical Committee requirements.

New - When an issue is created it is automatically assigned a status of New. A New issue has not yet been accepted by the Technical Committee. A new issue may either be accepted (Open Issue) or rejected (Close Issue) by the TC. Once an issue has been entered, the user should send an e-mail to the TC list with the URI.

Open - An issue accepted by the Technical Committee. Actual discussion of the issue takes place on the TC e-mail list and should include the URI to the actual issue.

Deferred - An issue accepted by the Technical Committee, but agreed  that its resolution will be not be included in the current version.

Resolved - An issue with an agreed-upon resolution that requires a change to the work product.

Applied - An issue to which the agreed-upon resolution has been incorporated into a draft work product.

Closed - An issue that has either been rejected or resolved and incorporated into a Committee-approved work product. 


All discussion on issues should happen on the Technical Committee's e-mail list and in TC meetings. As much detail as possible should be included when a new issue is opened. Additionally, the issue should note:

-          resolution, if accepted

-          reason for closing (completed, duplicate, rejected, etc.)


 Requesting a Project

To request a Project, the Chair should send an e-mail to the OASIS TC Administrator and identify the name(s) of any Issues Editor(s).


NOTE: The issues tracking system is not tied into the OASIS groupware (KAVI) authentication. Permissions must be managed manually.
