Link MS Teams messages to Jira issues
You can link any Microsoft Teams channel conversation to your Jira issue - even if the conversation already exists. This way you´ll have all information right where you need it – now or later.
Only MS Teams channel conversations can be linked to existing Jira issue (no MS Teams chats!)
Select a channel conversation → Click on the menu dots → Choose “more actions” → Link to Jira issue
(see screenshot above)
A dialogue opens → Fill in the required fields → Link (to issue)

Advantage: The whole message thread will be visible in Jira!
