Integration with Microsoft Teams

Does anyone know how to integrate Jira (core, service desk and/or software) with MIcrosoft Teams Tab? I know there's a connector, but not a tab, where you can actually manage issues from Microsoft Teams like you were inside Jira.

I've added MS Teams "Website" tabs with Jira URLs to MS Teams Channels.

I'm not sure what you are looking for, but I did this to group channels and their relevant Jira pages.  The Jira pages are embedded in the resp. MS Teams tab - although personally I prefer to open them in a separate browser window.

This is what I'm doing and it works great. Each user will need to authenticate to the tab but it save a lot of time and navigation needs.

There is a connector on Marketplace:

I'm sorry I haven't tested the connector myself, but hoping it helps you proceed or least be aware of more options. 

Thanks. I will as I mentioned in my question it doesn't do what I want as it simply posts notifications in a channel about certain events in jira. 


What I'm looking for is a tab that basically will display jira from within the team as an iframe. 


Such tab exists for Astana and wrike.


I'm looking for a similar connector for Bitbucket.  The one on the Marketplace appears to be broken.  Any thoughts?



Any luck with this?

In need of a connection betwee our Jira instance and MS teams. 

I would like to have Jira issues visible in teams. And furthermore commits visible in Jira tickets.


Anyone any advise?

Hello, the bots are freely available within teams already.  In teams, click the elipses (...) next to the channel name.  Select Connectors.   Jira, Trello and Bitbucket are listed.   Click configure.

It will typically walk you through how to setup.  For jira, its all webhook configuration.

Please don't buy an addon you don't need to buy.  Try the one that comes with teams first.

Can you provide a link to further documentation on adding those connectors within Teams and whether they are part of a beta program or need to be installed by an admin?  My tenant only shows MS owned connectors ( VSTS, Yammer, Dynamics 365, etc )



Hi Matt, here's a reference from The university of Wisconsin.

You should be an admin of the team, and an admin in Jira.

Right click the channel and select connectors.



Select Jira.


IS there an equivalent for Teams and Jira but with Jira on premise?

Hi Tony, I run Teams with the Jira integration with Jira On Premise.   The same documentation as above applies.

Are you sure about that?  Our company is trying to decide on Slack, Microsoft Teams, or other solutions and it seems that the Teams integration requires "JIRA Cloud for microsoft Teams" add-on, which is only available for JIRA Cloud.  It doesn't seem on-prem is supported

Unless you go for Hipchat or Stride, you're going to have to mess around with add-ons to get your Atlassian stuff to talk to you.

@Josiah Sansone I'm 100% using teams and on prem jira.    In teams, select the jira connector, it will walk you through how to make a webhook in Jira to talk to teams.

@Gregory Van Den Ham I figured it out - the connector is now called "JIRA Cloud", but once you install it, it provides a webhook that works in either on-prem or Cloud.  thanks!

Awesome, and thanks for the feedback! :)

Do you know if it is somehow possible to create jira tickets from within teams? am using Jira server.

Not currently.  The MS Teams team was still working on a bunch of functionality to the entire product right now last I checked.  They have a roadmap published here.

What version of JIRA Server are you using?  We're on 7.2.0 and I'm unable to configure the connector as you have described.

I was on 7.5.0 and the Jira Cloud connector was working fine.

I then try the Incoming Webhook by Move Work Forward. This one did not work in 7.5.0. I then upgraded Jira server (on-prem) to 7.9.2 and tried again and it worked.

I am now able to get the push notification from Jira -> MS Teams.

How do I configure for the write back from MS Teams -> into my on-premise Jira server?

What do you want to be able to do from Microsoft Teams?

post chat and file share back into Jira.

Thanks for your responses.  Another team member was able to configure the webhooks with MS teams.
