Link Tasks to Jira

TrustOps tasks can also be linked directly into Jira! In order to get started, make sure that you have properly configured your Jira integration via the integrations page.

Creating a Ticket in Jira

TrustOps tasks can be linked to Jira in two ways. The first is automatic ticket creation, and the other is manual ticket creation.

Automatic Ticket Creation

Ticket creation with Jira can be fully automated with TrustOps. Any user can choose to create all their tasks automatically in Jira. To create a ticket in Jira automatically, you need to change a few settings. Once this setting is enabled, any task that is assigned to a particular user will be created in Jira.

To enable automatic ticket creation

  1. Navigate to “Admin” tab in the left-hand side menu.
  2. Select the “Connected Apps”.
  3. Navigate to the Task Management section to configure automatically creating tickets in Jira for selected projects.
    The following screenshot shows the task management Jira configuration.
    TC Connected App Jira 01 1
  4. Click on the “Configure” button.
  5. Select Project, Issue Type, Reporter and Assignee.
    The following screenshot shows how to set up automated ticket creation.
    TC Connected App Jira 02 1
  6. Click on “Complete”. Now, if any task is assigned to you, it will be automatically created in Jira.

Manual Ticket Creation

If automated ticket creation is not required, tickets can be created manually in Jira via the standard task flow. 

To create a ticket manually

  1. Navigate to any of the tasks in TrustOps.
  2. Click on the “Create Issue with Jira” button.
    The following screenshot shows how to create an issue with Jira.
    TC Create Issue With Jira 01
  3. Enter key details such as Project, Issue Type, Reporter, Assignee, Summary, and Description.

4. Click on the “Create Issue” button.

5. You can check the “Tickets” tab of the task to see the tickets linked to that particular task. It shows the current Status, Assignee, and Priority level. As TrustOps-Jira integration is bi-directional, changes made to the ticket in Jira will be reflected in the corresponding TrustOps task.

6. You can also unlink the task directly from this page by clicking on the “Unlink” button.
The following screenshot shows capturing accurate Jira status via TrustOps tasks.
