How Does it Work?
For Codegeist 2020, the "Inbound Inventory" module of Intelligent Inventories was implemented. This module creates a new Jira issue based on inbound inventory item details. A new inbound inventory item is identified by the inventory clerk (or other applicable role) who labels the email containing the inventory item details with the "Inbound Inventory" Gmail label. This label triggers a Zapier Zap and relays inbound inventory item details to Forge.
How was it Built?
Communication between Gmail and Jira was accomplished by using Zapier to send a webhook to Atlassian Forge. Atlassian Forge then used the data from Gmail to create a new Jira issue.
