Do you use monday.com for project management and Jira for issue management? If so, wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could integrate those two services for a much more efficient workflow?

Guess what? You can. Even better, the process is quite simple. The only caveat is the monday.com and Jira integration is currently in beta. However, it does function well enough to be used by your teams. With this integration you can sync Jira issues to your monday.com projects, making this a must-have for those who work with both platforms.

What you’ll need to integrate monday.com with Jira

The only things you’ll need for this are both a monday.com and Jira account. That’s it.

How to integrate monday.com with Jira

Ready to configure your monday.com integration?

You must click and configure everything bracketed above according to your needs. For example, if you click [this project], you will be asked to choose between either When An Issue Is Created In Jira Create An Item In Monday.Com, and When An Item Is Created In Monday.Com Create An Issue In Jira (Figure E).
