All,

is it possible to connect several different Azure DevOps instances to a single Jira cloud instance for different projects?

We have a number of partners who internally work with their own Azure DevOps environments that we want to sync to our singular Jira cloud instance.

Is that possible and if yes, how can we manage that?

best regards,

Arnd

Yes, it is possible to connect multiple Azure DevOps instances to a single Jira Cloud instance for different projects. This can be achieved using the Jira Azure DevOps integration provided by Microsoft

  • In your Jira Cloud instance, navigate to Jira Settings > Apps.
  • Search for "Azure DevOps" in the Atlassian Marketplace and install the Azure DevOps integration add-on.
  • Follow the configuration steps to set up the integration with your Jira Cloud instance
  • For each Azure DevOps instance you want to connect, follow these steps:
    • In Jira Cloud, go to Jira Settings > Apps > Manage apps.
    • Find the Azure DevOps integration and click on it.
    • Click on "Configure" and then "Add new configuration".
    • Enter the details of the Azure DevOps instance, including the URL and authentication credentials.
    • Save the configuration.
  • After configuring the integration for each Azure DevOps instance, you can map projects and work items between Jira Cloud and Azure DevOps.
  • In the configuration settings, you can specify which projects in Jira Cloud correspond to which projects in Azure DevOps.
  • You can also map issue types, fields, and other settings to ensure synchronization between the two platforms
  • Each integration configuration allows you to specify synchronization settings, such as the direction of synchronization (bi-directional or one-way), frequency of synchronization, and which types of work items to synchronize.
  • Configure these settings according to your requirements to ensure that data is synchronized appropriately between Jira Cloud and Azure DevOps
  • Regularly monitor the synchronization between Jira Cloud and Azure DevOps to ensure that data is being synchronized correctly.
  • If you encounter any issues, use the logs and error messages provided by the integration to troubleshoot and resolve them.
  • You may also need to adjust synchronization settings or mappings as your projects evolve or chang

Hey Prakash! Expanding on Arnd's question:
We've successfully connected Azure DevOps to our Jira but we're struggling with steps 5 - 7. We don't see where to make these configurations. All we see is the ADO project in the connector settings but we can't make configurations there, neither in the Jira or ADO projects.

Could you assist us again? Thanks in advance!

Hi @Arnd Kleinbeck - If you want a 2-way integration, you can get Unito's Atlassian app right here with support for Azure DevOps. 

It's all self-serve with customizable rules and field mappings, and you don't have to write any script whatsoever.

I wrote this guide explaining how to set up a flow between ADO and Jira.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

@Arnd Kleinbeck hi. +1 for Prakash's suggestion. I'll simply add another option,  just in case you want to explore other approaches  - ZigiOps at the Atlassian marketplace. It's a fully no-code tool that can easily integrate Jira & Azure, transfer and sync their data. It does not store any of the transferred.  Feel free to look at ZigiOps and even try it via the free trial.

Regards, 

Diana
