Ability to Sync Tasks
One of the common requests from our customers using SpiraTeam and SpiraPlan is that they would like to do the requirements development in Spira and have the business analysts and product owners create tasks in Spira that then get pushed to Jira. We have similar functionality available for Azure DevOps and Asana but not Jira. With this latest update, you can now create tasks in Spira (either connected to a requirement or just standalone) and they will get added to Jira as either an issue of type Task or Sub-Task:
If the task in Spira maps to a requirement already linked to a Jira User Story, Epic or Feature, the task will be automatically linked in Jira as well:
Then if the development team make any changes in Jira to the task, the updates will synchronize back into Spira.
The synchronization is flexible, allowing you to map different types of task in Spira to different types of task in Jira:
To enable this new functionality, you will need to modify the plugin configuration settings so that Custom 02 contains the list of Jira issue types that should be synchronized as Spira tasks:
In addition to this main enhancement, we've also added functionality whereby incidents that are created in Spira that are linked to requirements will also show this association in Jira. Previously only incident - incident associations were migrated to Jira.
On-Premise and Cloud
As with our existing integration functionality, the new versions of the data synchronization plugin continue to support all three flavors of Atlassian Jira:
- Jira Cloud
- Jira Server
- Jira DataCenter
If you are using our cloud-based synchronization, then the new plugin is already active. If you are using on-premise synchronization, you will need to download the latest version from our website.
