Jira integration with Pendo Listen

Last updated:

This article is an overview of the Jira integration with Pendo Listen, how it works, and what the user experience is for Jira and Pendo users. For information about how to set up the integration, see Set up the Jira integration with Pendo Listen.

Functionality

The Jira integration with Listen allows you to deliver requirements to engineering teams in Jira that you can also keep track of in Pendo. This helps to unify the feedback and prioritization process in Listen with the development process in Jira. Specifically, the integration allows you to:

  • Create and link new Jira Stories from an idea in Listen.
  • Search for and link existing Jira Stories to an idea in Listen.
  • From an idea in Listen, see the high-level details of Jira issues that are linked to the idea.
  • Open linked Jira issues from an idea.
  • From an issue in Jira, see links to ideas in Listen.
  • Open linked ideas in Pendo from a Jira issue.

You can set up the integration with one Jira instance per Pendo subscription.

View ideas linked to a Jira issue

You can see what ideas are linked to an issue in Jira by opening that Jira ticket. The description for the Jira issue contains one URL for each idea in Validate that the issue is linked to. Opening this URL takes you directly to the idea in Pendo.
