Atlas Newbie Question - Multiple ideas

Jerry O'Sullivan April 17, 2023


We are using Atlas and JPD together to model our work. 


I have a goal with a number of related projects...Each of those projects have a number of related ideas in JPD. What is the best way to model and view theses relationships . So far I have tried

1. Using the Atlas Where is Work tracked feature, but that only shows I item

2. @Tanguy Crusson kindly enabled the atlas fields on the JPD side and I can update those, however I can't see that reflect anywhere on the Atlas side


Many thanks

Hi Jerry! Great question. 

Does an idea map 1:1 to an Atlas project in your set up? One way you can link the two is to link the JPD idea under the Related Links in the Atlas project. This simply displays the linked work but doesn't have any syncing behaviour between the two. 

Once linked, what is the behaviour you're expecting between the JPD idea and Atlas project? 

To your second point, this is something we need to do. Can I perhaps share some early thinking with you once we have things ready, to get your feedback?

Hi Rachel,

Nope, At the moment a project can have multiple ideas...some tracked in Atlassian some elsewhere. 

The related links work well but ideally we would want it to sync with the Atlas Goals and Projects fields that are in JPD

Happy to give any feedback on ideas you are working through at the moment

@Rachel Lin Any view on when we will be able to have multiple links under the where is work tracked section in a project.


We have projects that may have work in Azure, JIRA SD and a Sharepoint file it would be awesome to visualise all in one section pulling in their status also

Looking forward to having this ability, to sync Jira Product Discovery Idea information to the Atlas project, just like we can an Epic from Jira Software.

Ideally.. as an example.. if we have an Idea in JPD with a Target Start and Target End information set, we would want this to inform the timeline info you see in Atlas, like it does for Epics.

We would very much like to be able to sync JPD Idea to the Atlas project in same way you can with Jira Software Epics for example. But the "Sync with Jira" option is not available when you make the "Where is work tracked?" item a JPD Idea in the Atlas project.
