Call Center / Telephony / VOIP Support for JIRA


in a discussion with a customer regarding help/service desk provisioning I was asked if JIRA has any call center or telephony support. Searching the known places (Google, here) on that returned almost nothing and I am wondering if it would be worth to put some efforts on a plugin that would provide such features.

What comes basically in my mind would be the following:

- Fetch incoming calls, record them and attach sound files to JIRA issues

- Fetch incoming calls, apply speech to text and attach the text to JIRA issues

- Detect issue keys in recordings and add comments/attachments to existing JIRA issues

- Transition existing JIRA issues on incoming calls

- Attach caller information to issue with a call back function (click on the attached phone number)

- Maintain a phone book for registered users

- Text to speech: Get the details from a JIRA issue whith a phone call

What do you think? Any further ideas or suggestions?

Would you like to find something like this in the market place?

the mentioned plugin really seem to be orphaned. Twillio actually looks nice but the user of the plugin would be tied to this product.

While looking for a more independent solution I played around with PJSIP/PJSUA which provides a rather powerful and flexible API for implementing VOIP based applications and it looks quite promising.

I will go on with this and try if I can manage to get it working as a kind of JIRA plugin and will let you know how I proceed.

Hi Christian,

I believe almost all of the features you described could be accomplished using Twilio's APIs and the JIRA REST API. There is an existing Twilio-JIRA connector in the Atlassian Marketplace, but it does not appear to be actively maintained.

If you're looking for someone pre-built, I think you might be out of luck. But if you're willing to build it yourself, I think it's absolutely feasible and you've got a great set of features outlined already. I expect you will want to build an add-on with Atlassian Connect. That will be the easiest way to deliver features like a "call back" button in JIRA. There's plenty of information for you to get started here.



Hi Dave,

thank you for your hint. I will have a look at the mentioned connector. Sounds interesting :-)
