Setting up Jira Cloud integration

How to connect your Jira Cloud instance to Swarmia?

With the Jira integration, you'll be able to see your commits and Pull Requests in the context of your Jira issues.

Connecting the Jira instance needs to be done only once. The issue type and status mapping is also done once for the organization. The issue ownership is mapped separately for each team.

Using on-premise Jira (Jira Server or Jira Data Center) instead of Jira Cloud? We've got you covered.

If you would like to use the same Jira installation with multiple organizations, please reach out to us at and we'll set that up for you.

In app's configuration, you need to click Finish installation, after this, the page should show "Swarmia is connected to your Jira site".
You can also access the configuration page by navigating to Jira settings > Apps > Manage apps

Step 2: Configure Jira integration

After completing the previous step, you can finish the configuration for the Jira integration within Swarmia.

First, make sure you select which projects you want to sync to Swarmia. You can either choose individual projects, or choose to sync everything. For very large Jira installations, choosing individual projects will make the initial sync considerably faster.

Then, you may continue to manage issue mapping.
