GitHub is a great tool for your developers to collaborate on code and development issues, but if you want to use JIRA as a companion tool to track bugs and issues, Zapier can help link the two together. After this integration is set up, new GitHub issues created from that point forward will be saved as new issues in JIRA. You'll never have to search for the issues you need to work on next again.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't import existing GitHub issues into JIRA, only new issues after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new development issue is created in GitHub.
  2. Zapier adds that issue to JIRA

What You Need

  • A GitHub account
