The best platform for my app

I want to build student and Teachers Team collaboration platform on Atlassian for app contest.

here are my 5 questions:

1.) which platform do I leverage. for building Students/Teachers Collaborationis. it Jira cloud, confluence cloud or Bucket cloud?.

2.) Can I use bootstraps in the app development.

3.) Where do I store and query my data. Do I have to store it in my own database.

4.) How do I authenticate users of my app. if my applications requires that team should login to be able to access the app, do i have to create the login on my own end.

5.) Is there any specific design required by Atlassian for the app. Eg Color, css etc.

Thanks

1.) which platform do I leverage. for building Students/Teachers Collaborationis. it Jira cloud, confluence cloud or Bucket cloud?.

That really depends on what you’re trying to do. I would look at what Atlassian data you’re trying to look at as well as where the customer is at. You mention collaboration - so I would lean towards Confluence, but it really depends on what you’re trying to do.

2.) Can I use bootstraps in the app development.

Not sure what type of bootstrap env you’re looking for. There is Atlassian Connect Express and SpringBoot that can get you up and running quite quickly.

3.) Where do I store and query my data. Do I have to store it in my own database.

Not necessarily. Jira and Confluence have entity properties (https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/service-desk/jira-entity-properties/ and https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/storing-data-with-entity-properties/ ) But you can store things in your own db.

4.) How do I authenticate users of my app. if my applications requires that team should login to be able to access the app, do i have to create the login on my own end.

Take a look at something like: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/security-overview/

5.) Is there any specific design required by Atlassian for the app. Eg Color, css etc.

No real requirements - but end users appreciate it when it matches the host product. :slight_smile: Take a look at https://design.atlassian.com
