Jira Server for Microsoft Teams brings your Jira Server experience into your collaboration environment, letting you and your team stay focused and communicate on issues and backlog. Interact with Jira Server bot for Microsoft Teams to: create, assign, watch, edit issues, log working time. You may also interact with the bot from your team channel. With the messaging extension, you can quickly search for a specific issue and submit it to a channel or conversation. With the actionable message, you can quickly create a new issue, pre-populated with message text as the issue description, or save the message as a comment on one of your Jira Server issues. Also, you can add your project backlog to your channel as a tab, so that your team could easily track and work on the issues within the tab.
Important: To use messaging extension, bot or tabs you’ll need to install Microsoft Teams for Jira Server add-on to your Jira (admin access required) and share the generated Jira ID with the team. You can install the required Microsoft Teams for Jira add-on from the Apps section in your Jira instance.
Jira Server connector for Microsoft Teams can be set up independently and doesn’t require addon installation. Connector is webhook-based and can be configured directly from Teams channel. Please note, that webhook set-up in Jira requires Jira admin permissions.
