We've migrated from Trello to MS Planner, because, well, it's included as part of Office 365 and fully integrated with Outlook and OneDrive, as well as administered with Azure AD. We liked Trello but we had to make that move.
What we want to do now is use MS Planner as our Kanban board where we put ideas and tasks more informally, but then be able to pull the Task name, Due Date, Start Date, Priority, Progress, Comments, Attachments, Checklist, etc etc all over into a Jira Issue... click a button "Move to Jira Issue"... select the Issue Type (this way we can define the MS Planner task as a bug, or a task, etc)... and then be off and running with Jira driving the issue to resolution. We would then want to be able to drag the tasks around the Jira Kanban in order to be able to see and keep track of the state/status of each task and have the increased power and flexibility that Jira offers to manage the project from that point... but while still updating the MS Planner task... two-way sync between Planner tasks and Jira Issues.
We might let almost anyone in the company post to the MS Planner Kanban to get ideas up there and discussed, but once it is imported or "sucked in" to the Jira Kanban, it's now serious, funded, and time for the focused team [only] to get things done.
We basically want to use MS Planner for the "napkin" and Jira for the "blueprint and construction checklist".
Is this possible?
Hi @Cloud Control Limited -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
As of now, there does not appear to be anything in the marketplace pre-built for Jira Cloud and Microsoft Planner connection. I recommend also searching yourself because your team will have a better understanding of what you want/need: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/
If you can get a webhook from Planner to push out information, you can use Jira Automation rules to consume the data to create issues. This is one way people connect to other external apps. Here is some information on automation rules to get you started:
