Easiest way to link user's two JIRA instances?

Consider the following problem:

  • User has one JIRA instance for internal work at company1.atlassian.net
  • User has a separate JIRA instance for issues from another company, company2.atlassian.net
  • User needs to be able to view, edit, and manage all issues, boards, and content from company2's instance in company1's instance. 
  • User's edits, statuses, etc must be synced across the two instances. 

What is the easiest way to achieve this? I'm comfortable with the JIRA API if that's what's necessary, but I was hoping there's an easier way that I just haven't found yet.

Hi Justin,

Another solution you could have a look at is Backbone Issue Sync for JIRA. It also allows you to keep multiple JIRA instances in sync with fine-granular control on which issue types and fields you want to synchronize.

If I understood correctly from your list you are want to link two Cloud JIRA instances. Please have a look at the help article on how to achieve this with Backbone: https://help.k15t.com/backbone-issue-sync/latest/how-can-i-synchronize-two-jira-cloud-instances-with-each-other-119842136.html
