Is it possible to integrate BambooHR with JIRA?


I would like to integrate BambooHR into JIRA so that for example when I create an issue/task in JIRA and I assign it to an individual and that individual happens to be on leave on a certain date that will affect the deadline/delivery of a project.

I would like JIRA to be smart enough to check with BambooHR if the assigned individual/s will be available during the selected period and let me know if the given deadline period for development is ideal for example. I want JIRA to give me feedback to increase the development time frame in case I have my developers on leave or are sick for example.

Also would like possibility of related reporting - if possible.

This is a very old post, but I thought I'd mention we are working on this currently and will have a beta ready in the next couple of weeks if you're interested in trying it out! :) 

Hi Nigel!
I'd love to hear about trying this integration out. Would you keep me posted on the timeline as we are automating our onboarding pipeline?

Hi all,

@Mia Ferguson @Raymond Saliba @Chris Hall @Eugene G @Sol Battisti @Amy Michalczyk @Irene Romero 

A quick update to let you know that this app is now live on the Marketplace: 

It's initially for Server (DC coming shortly) with a Cloud app following next Spring.

With the integration, you can:

  • configure which request types to sync and how often
  • auto-sync time-off requests to Jira issues and user profiles
  • sync time-off to the most popular planning apps including Tempo Planner and BigPicture

We're really keen to see how you get on - please feel free to reach out to us at if you have suggestions for improvements or general questions about the app.


@Nigel Rochford do you have any updates on the integration? Im interested in the Beta.

Indeed @Mason Bednarczyk  :) You can check it out now on the marketplace - we've just gone live!

Initially for Server (DC shortly), and then Cloud next year.

Hi @Nigel Rochford thanks for the info,

I would love to know when the cloud version will come out to test it.

Hello Nigel,


We are in 2021 when will it be possible to have the cloud version of this integration available? 


Thanks !

We'll keep you posted on progress over the Spring :) We are not ready yet to announce a release date but will keep you all informed in this post!

Any news on Cloud ETA? Thank you @Nigel Rochford 

You need to look into the root of the issue here -- why would you pre-assign tasks in the first place? In Kanban, for example, you use the "pull" approach where people pull tasks from the queue when they are ready to take the next task. Even if you have highly specialized individuals the "pull" approach still holds.


Please share the beta integration future. We would also like to integrate BambooHR with JIRA. 



Hi @Irene Romero

Please email me at for more information on how to participate. 

I'd also like to understand your use case! We've now launched the Beta for a period of 1 month so you can start testing :)

@Raymond Saliba  - I've updated your question and tag to clarify this is about BambooHR rather than Atlassian's own Bamboo (a CI/CD server) wink
