How to integrate Jira with SharePoint in a few easy steps?
Working with Jira software and Jira projects can be tough for rookies as well as professionals unless you know the tricks and steps that you need to achieve success. If you want to do a specific task using Jira and are unable to do so then our short guides and webinars can help you immensely!
Here, we have compiled a few easy steps using which you can integrate Jira with SharePoint along with a few other key items that need to be covered to aid your understanding.
Business Use Cases:
Senior management in a number of corporations do not want to invest the time, effort and money to separately login to Jira when they can already use SharePoint to track employees or manage resources. The simple solution to such problems and opposition is to allow Jira to communicate and share data with SharePoint to create a smooth flow of data. Let us see how we can achieve the integration of the two.
What you need to know in Jira
WebHooks: This is a special functionality of Jira which you can access by searching using the administrator access. The basic function of WebHooks is to perform a user defined call back over HTTP which can notify a different app or web application about the events occurring within Jira. This sharing of data is not limited to SharePoint only.
Integrate Jira with SharePoint:
To integrate Jira with SharePoint simply follow the steps mentioned below:
- Configure WebHooks in Jira. Define the name, url, scope and events that are specific for the WebHook that you want to create. Defining these four factors are essential because without this a specific and precise conntection cannot be established.
- Configure the Team Site in SharePoint. SharePoint allows the creation of public or private team sites which can track progress and statuses and if needed broadcast it to other organisations as well. Add Jira Connector to the team site and configure the connector.
- Steps 1 and 2 complete the creation of the connection between Jira and SharePoint. However, you need to test the connection and the easy flow of work by creating defined events that you want Jira to transfer to your connected SharePoint.
Working with Jira becomes easier when you know the functionalities and the power of the options available within. Here, we have tried to compile a short few steps that can allow you to easily connect Jira with any platform of your choice like SharePoint. Doing this helps you to understand and work with Jira better.
