Jira – What is story vs. task?

The story in Jira helps in representing a goal. For example, it could be the implementation of a Jira instance for a customer. On the other hand, tasks can be regarded as single to-dos that are expected to be completed before you go live with any Jira instance.

A user story can be regarded as the functionality that remains visible to the end users. The implementation of the user story will mostly include a tester and a developer. Based on the functionality that is involved, a DevOps engineer, a database engineer, or an analyst can be involved in the process.

On the other hand, a task in Jira can be regarded as some piece of code that is created for testing data. Moreover, a task is typically performed by a single person. Tasks, unlike Stories, are not estimated in Story Points.
