We want our constantly changing SharePoint requirements documents to be linked to the appropriate JIRA issue and have any/all updates/changes carried over so that we could avoid duplication of effort as well as everyone see the same information. Which add-on or tool would support what we need? We would like to have our customers go directly to the SharePoint site input their requirement needs and have it carry-over to our JIRA tickets/issues. We really need a one and done process whether it be using JIRA with SharePoint (i.e. JIRA's Confluence, Connector, or even Office365).
