Let's glance at all the major steps involved in Salesforce-Jira integration. For more information on each individual section, use the navigation panel on the left.

Sinergify is a powerful connector for Salesforce and Jira integration, offering a broad range of integration possibilities.

Note: Our team also offers assisted implementation in case a customer needs it. Customizations can also be done in case a customer needs a tailored Sinergify instance.

Configuring Sinergify on Salesforce

  1. Pre-Requisites

  1. Enable Idea

    • Login to Salesforce org as an admin.

    • Switch to Classic Experience and click on ‘Setup’.

    • In the Search box enter  “Idea Settings”.

    • Select Edit and then select Enable “Idea”. See the reference screenshot.

    • Click Save.

  1. Enable Incident Management

    • Enable the Toggle Button.

    Note: As our package is compatible with Salesforce Incident Management, it is important to Enable incident management upon installing the package. You can disable the setting once the package is installed.
  1. Setup Integration user

    Integration user is the Jira user that will be responsible for syncing/creating/modifying the data from Salesforce to Jira. Hence in order to attain the features available on Jira Platform within Salesforce, it is necessary to have a unique/dedicated integration user. The authentication process on the Sinergify Admin page needs to be done via this Integration user only. This user must have all the right permissions in order to make successful updates on Jira.

    Please refer to the article below for reference.
