Trello → Jira synchronization

This type of synchronization means that everything is synced from Trello to Jira and not vice-versa. If there are updates on the synced tasks (for example comments or attachments in Trello card), they will not be synced back.

Warning

All cards on Trello board which had been created before configuring the integration cannot be synchronized.

Note

Changes made on Trello boards are instantly visible in Jira.

Trello card parameters which can be synchronized with Jira fields are listed below:

  • Summary (selected by default and cannot be changed)
  • Description
  • Due date
  • Labels
    Warning

    Remember that Jira does not allow white spaces. Label must be an one word. Two-words label and label with spaces cannot be synchronized from Trello to Jira.

  • Attachments
  • Comments
