Jira

Why

Jira Integration allows you to:

  • Creating an incident in Rootly will create an issue in Jira if you choose to.
  • Creating an action item in Rootly will create an issue in Jira if you choose to. Attached as subtasks if incident has been created in Jira as well.
  • Changing incident title, description, status in Rootly will update the issue in Jira.
  • Changing action item title, description, status in Rootly will update the issue in Jira.
  • Changing Jira incident issue attributes will not update incident attributes in Rootly.
  • Changing Jira action item issue attributes will update action item attributes in Rootly. ( See Webhooks section to make this feature works )
