I am curious if any one had any thoughts on how to get essentially get a ticket created in jira, and then at the end be turned into a document that is sent out for signature using adobe sign.

We do not want to use Zapier or any automation tool.

1. I have looked into using a jira plugin file exporter to generate a wodrd doc, that gets delivered to adobe sign, which then sends it out for signature.


2. Another option is to use a O365 form, then power-automate the whole thing. With one part of power automate would be to send the form to adobe, and also send to jira.

I prefer option 1, so there is one ticket, and one flow that starts in jira.

Is there other ways to do this in jira?

We are developer of the Better PDF Exporter and Better PDF Automation (DC version) apps which sound like the perfect pair to handle this!

Right now, the automation part of the pair is not released for the Cloud yet, but we have a working prototype. When out, it will make it possible to generate PDF documents as part of regular Jira automation rules. 

If you can tell me how Adobe expects a document, then I should be able to tell if this is something that is within our near-term scope.

We primarily plan to support emailing PDF documents and to attach them to issues in the first version. If you can access an issue attachment from an automation rule, and forward that to Adobe (both sound pretty realistic to me), then you could approach it this way... :-?
