GitHub Pull Requests-> Jira Story Integration


The goal right now is essentially

When GitHub Pull Request opens from develop -> master, then auto-create a Jira story under xyz board with full description. The description should get pulled from GH PR. (possibly a webhook?)

We have certain users who should not have access to the source code, but I would still like for them to see Change Logs so they are aware of when certain feature requests get merged to master.

Hi @Osmani Sanchez

This is Majid @ Exalate. 

If you are open you using a third party app, I believe Exalate would be an ideal fit. Exalate is a synchronization app which can sync your pull requests and issues from Github to Jira issues (story, epic, etc.). You can fully customize the synchronization rules to suit your business needs and you should be able to set up the connection in less than 5 mins!

Please feel free to book a demo if you would like to see the product in action.

Hi @Osmani Sanchez and welcome to the community,

wouldn‘t it be sufficient to use the built in „development information“ functionality? you could use commits to link stories to your repository and sutomatically see information to commits, pull requests, merge in the real implementation story. This won‘t show or give any access to source code but just show the informstion in an issue.


Hi @Osmani Sanchez . May I ask if you're open to using an external tool to make the integration? If yes, then I'd like to propose a tool that might help you with your use case - pull requests from Github and create Jira story. It's a connector, called ZigiOps. It's easy to use and can be customized to fit different use cases. ZigiOps also establishes a bi-direction connection between the integrated systems. Feel free to take a look at it and book a demo, in case you want to see in action.

Regards, Diana (ZigiWave)
