Two-way integration with JIRA

September 17, 2013

ProdPad Updates

Two way integration with JIRA and ProdPadHeads up, JIRA lovers! We’ve gone live with an important, useful update to your favourite product management software, a deep integration allowing for 2-way link between JIRA with ProdPad.

Now, more than ever before, your development team, your product folks, and the rest of your company, can all be on the same page when it comes to what’s working through the pipeline.

Custom, flexible status mapping

We work with the custom statuses you already use in ProdPad, allowing you to map them up with the issue statuses you use in JIRA. Essentially, when the status changes on JIRA, it updates on ProdPad, allowing the rest of the team to see where their ideas are in the development cycle.

A prod/dev flow that makes sense

So now, you can expect to work like this:

1) Capture ideas and start fleshing them out into product specs in ProdPad.
2) Once you know what you want to build (see our handy roadmap tool for that), push the idea over to JIRA to create a ticket out of it.
3) Now that your dev team is on the case, whenever they update the status of the idea from, let’s say, “In development” to “Testing”, you and your team can see that update on the idea in ProdPad.

Integration with JIRA made easy

So to get this all set up, it’s pretty simple.

Jump into your account and head to the Integrations & API page, or follow along our helpful step-by-step guide showing you every click of the way.

It takes just moments, but once you’re done, your product and development teams will be more in harmony than ever before.

If you’re not already on ProdPad, you can start your free trial today!
