Jira 8 Integrations

by Jim Weaver

Software development teams use many tools: Version control systems, instant messaging platforms, knowledge sharing tools, and others. In this course, you’ll see how to integrate Jira with such tools, and learn the benefits of each integration.

What you'll learn

Software development teams rely on an ecosystem of tools to get work done, and a lack of integration between those tools can cause team-members to have to switch between tools frequently. In this course, Jira 8 Integrations, you’ll learn how to integrate Jira with popular tools commonly used by dev teams. First, you’ll learn how to perform each integration as well as the benefits gained both in Jira and the integrated tool once they’re connected. Then, you’ll see Jira integrated with Confluence, Slack, Bitbucket, Bamboo, and Crucible. Finally, you’ll explore two general mechanisms for building custom integrations with Jira, which are the use of web hooks and the use of Jira REST API. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to help your team gain the benefits of tool integration with Jira.
