Jira Integration with Dev Tools - What is the Value/Benefits?

Deleted user Jan 26, 2018

We are looking at integration between Jira and the development Tools as described here: integrating with development tools

Can anyone provide feedback regarding the benefits of this type of integration?

I would have thought there would be some marketing info. that outlined the "Why you would want to do this", but can't seem to find any.

Need to address the "Just because you can doesn't mean you should" crowd.

The main idea with any kind of integration is, to link development information to an issue in an automated way. This happens normally by adding the Jira Issue Key to the commit comment of your favourite VCS.

Now, the issue is enriched with information about the code change. This is quite useful for developers to quickly see what happened to the code because of the verbal description of a requirement.

How much benefit this at all will deliver is hard to measure. Best you ask the individuals that will (potentially) profit from this.
