Configuring Lightning Experience components

The Salesforce Package features the Lightning Experience component which means you can now take advantage of the Lightning App Builder to easily build customized page layouts. The components can show Jira information and operation buttons to create or associate, as well as Jira comments related to the associated Jira issues. 

This page will guide you on how to configure Lightning Experience components for both standard and custom objects in Salesforce.
