Increase team productivity by tightly integrating Microsoft Teams and Atlassian's Jira. With this integration, you can streamline your day to day work.

You receive only essential information in Teams about Jira events, which you can filter down, configure the content, and interact.

Create channels to discuss issues in Teams. Unfurl links to enrich information about issues, projects and Jira searches. Use free text or advanced JQL Jira search from Microsoft Teams. Schedule notifications from Jira on the global, project, personal or issue levels.

Inspiration

We had our simple App that used only Incoming Webhook and we decided to take it to the next level. https://www.moveworkforward.com/product/microsoft-teams-jira-connector

We are building the best in the World Microsoft Teams and Jira integration. We just started!

  • Search Jira issues using free text or JQL search, unfurl links
  • Create Microsoft Teams issue discussion channels from Jira.
  • Create tabs to view, create and edit Jira issues from Teams Many more things are coming:

How I built it

We built it using Serverless framework, TypeScript on AWS (S3, Dynamo, Lambda, etc). The frontend is ReactJS.

Challenges I ran into

  • Adopting Bot Framework to AWS Lambda
  • Loading indicator was on and we waisted 3-4 hors investigating why Tab configuration screen had constant spinner

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • We managed to submit it for Microsoft for review, but it is only the beginning!

  • How to build robust Microsoft Teams and Jira application
  • How to map account
  • How to handle security for Microsoft Teams
