How to link Jira Cloud Components to JPD?

Mart Postma September 14, 2023

Hi all,

Another day, another question.

I was wondering whether it is possible to link Components of a Jira Cloud Project to JPD - or if there is any workaround for it.

For example, if a new idea/issue is created through a template in JPD, I want to be able to select a Component from our Jira Cloud Project, such that this Component is linked to this specific idea/issue in JPD. Preferably I can also query for more data of this component, such as the assignee of the Component and other fields.

I assume that it is not (yet) possible since JPD is still in its infancy, but worth a try. Thank you.

Hi @Mart Postma, Components are project-scoped fields meaning that they can not be used outside the project. I'm curious though, can you tell me more about your use case? Why do you need to connect Jira Product Discovery to Components?

Hi @Rohan Swami, thanks for your answer - and your question.

In our project, the software system that we are developing is divided into many components of which each component has fields such as assignee, linked issues, etc.

Now I want our customers (Contributors/Stakeholders) to be able to submit an idea for a specific component of our system. 

Let's take Facebook as an example. Assume that they have divided their system into Components as well, such as Main Feed, Marketplace, Comments, Events, etc. etc.

If a customer of Facebook wants to submit an idea for a specific component, then it can select that component in the Idea Template, and describe further specifications. 

With some automation rules, then for example this idea can be linked to some other issues in Jira, as well as assigned to the component owner of Facebook. This prevents product managers having to triage and assess every (new) idea thoroughly. 

Thus, I wish to achieve a similar functionality in our system, as our customers are familiar with the naming of our components in the system.

Hope it is more clear. Let me know if you need further explanations!
