Search for and share Jira issues in MS Teams

Feature overview

Add a Jira issue to a Microsoft Teams channel to triage and discuss tickets together. Team members can join the conversation, even if they don’t use Jira or JSM. Keep your team going!


  • Open a Microsoft Teams channel → Go to the conversation tab → Click on the app → Search for Jira issue

  • Post the Jira issue into the channel → Team members can join

Automatic linking

Automatic issue linking is the process that helps you share information between Microsoft Teams & Jira. If you share a Jira issue in Microsoft Teams, our bot will detect this and link the conversation to this issue automatically. To try this, you can share an issue to any channel where the bot is installed.

After sharing an issue (see screenshot How-to), the bot will post a reply, saying the issue has been linked. From now on, all replies will automatically be visible in Jira!
