Integrating Multiple Jira Instances
It's a very common practice within software organizations to be using multiple tools across multiple departments. The 'best of bread' approach allows each role to use their preferred tool of choice to be able to track the progress of their day to day initiatives. In these cases the need for software tool integration is very clear to ensure information flows seamlessly from tool to tool, department to department.
But what if an organization has decided to use a single tool of choice across all departments? After-all, tools like Jira are extremely flexible and having all information within one tool seems like it would be beneficial at least in theory. The reality is that there are many cases where companies are using multiple Jira instances where different teams are using their own instance, or perhaps it's in the case of a merger or acquisition, or if a company is working with a sub contractor. All of these cases create risk of lack of traceability and visibility as well as an increase in time wasted dealing with duplicate manual entry of information.
Using Tasktop to integrate multiple Jira instances, you can seamlessly automate the flow of work items like epics, stories and defects between two Jira projects in separate instances. The data is normalized through traceability and effortless reporting improving collaboration across all teams within your organization.
Common multi Jira architectures include:
- Split across Jira server and Jira Cloud
- Split across various Jira server instances
- Split across Jira Data Center and Jira Cloud instances
