Jira Integration

Project Import#

To ease the transition from Jira to DevRev, you can choose to import your Jira project(s) into DevRev. To import a Jira project, navigate to DevOrg Settings > Imports then select Start Import or Import.

From there, create a new connection to a Jira site or use an existing connection if you already have one. Once the connection is established, select the project you wish to import. This will perform a bulk import of the selected project. DevRev will try to automatically and sensibly map your fields to corresponding fields in DevRev but it may prompt you on how you want to map certain fields.

Post import options

After a successful import, you will have these options added for an imported project:

  • Sync to DevRev
    • Write any modifications made in Jira to the corresponding work item in DevRev
    • Create new work items in DevRev for any new issues created in Jira after the last sync or import
  • Sync to Jira
    • Write any modifications made in DevRev to the corresponding issue in Jira
    • (Optionally) Create new issues in Jira for any new work items created in DevRev after the last sync or import

Historical imports#

You can view currently running and previous imports from any source, including Jira, by navigating to DevOrg Settings > Imports.

Sync to DevRev#

After a successful issue import from a Jira project, you have the sync to DevRev option. The sync to DevRev feature will import any new issues and any new changes to previously imported issues.

To perform a sync to DevRev, go to DevOrg Settings > Imports and find the previously imported project and select the Sync > -> DevRev option.

*Note: This will override work's fields, even if they were changed in DevRev.

Sync to Jira#

After a successful issue import from a Jira project, you have the sync to Jira option. The sync to Jira feature will write back any changes made in DevRev to previously imported issues from Jira. Optionally, new work created in DevRev can also be created in the Jira project.

To perform a sync to Jira, go to DevOrg Settings > Imports and find the previously imported project and select the Sync > DevRev -> option.

*Note: This will override issues's fields, even if they were changed in Jira.
