Microsoft Teams: Start a conversation in Jira
Share a Jira issue to a preferred Microsoft Teams channel to triage it with your team.
Depending on how the appearance is configured and if you are using the new or old issue view, you can start this action a bit differently. We’ll assume you are using the default settings with the new Jira issue view.
Please see the end of the article to see how it looks like for other settings.
Open an issue → Click on the “Microsoft Teams icon” in your issue → a dialogue opens.
Select “Channel” and choose “XY Channel” → Type your message
You can also @-mention people from Teams!
When finished → Click on “Send to Teams” → The whole conversation will appear in Jira and in Microsoft Teams.
After sending the message to your MS Teams channel → Jira refreshes automatically → the conversation is visible in a “related Teams conversation” panel
The best: The whole conversation is accessible for your team in Jira and in MS Teams!
We recommend to install the app for all your teams in Microsoft Teams. Then all channels are available automatically.
Share the same issue in different Teams channels
You need to discuss the issue with different teams?
Structure your discussions even better and post the Jira issue in different Microsoft Teams channels. This way you can clarify issues with your development and/or e.g. with your design team. And the best: You’ll have all information in one place.
