Article summary

Jira is a software development tool used for issue tracking and project management. It is designed to help teams plan, track, and discuss work across multiple projects. Jira is widely used in the software industry and can be customized to fit the needs of various teams and organizations.

Traceable provides an option to integrate your Cloud-based Jira project or Jira Data Center. The Jira integration allows you to file a Jira ticket directly from the Traceable platform. Note that once you choose a deployment type from the Cloud or Data Center, you cannot change it.

Note

You can have one or more than one Jira integration. You can select one Jira integration for all the environments, or choose to select individual Jira integrations for each environment.


Jira cloud

The integration process consists of operations in your JIRA project and Traceable platform. Make sure that you have the JIRA administrator rights to integrate JIRA with Traceable.

The integration process requires switching between Traceable Platform and your JIRA project.

Jira Data Center is a deployment option for Atlassian's Jira software designed for large enterprises or organizations requiring high availability, scalability, and performance. It provides a clustered architecture that allows multiple Jira nodes to work together, enabling more robust and scalable environments compared to the standard Jira Server deployment.

To integrate Traceable with Jira Data Center, navigate to Integrations Project Management and click on Configure on the Jira card.


In the Add New Jira Integration window, complete the following:

  1. Log in to your Traceable account, Navigate to Integrations → Project Management, and click Configure on the Jira card
