JIRA VersionOne Integration Overview
In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements.
Best-of-breed systems such as VersionOne and JIRA bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem. By integrating VersionOne with JIRA, product management team will have real-time visibility into the development plan as well as progress of each requirement. It will also give developers clarity on business requirements and customer expectations.
How JIRA – VersionOne integration is beneficial for an enterprise
- Trace the requirement breakdown and associated test cases
- Get complete context of the business requirement and receive real-time updates when there is a change in the plan
- Coordinate on the delivery timelines seamlessly with concurrent updates on changes
- Get full traceability into the Quality Assurance (QA) reports

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates JIRA and VersionOne
OpsHub Integration Manager integrates VersionOne and JIRA bidirectionally. It ensures that all historical and current data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All ‘backlog items’ from VersionOne along with ‘actuals’ synchronize to JIRA giving the development team visibility into the development work and estimated effort hours. The product management team using VersionOne also has real-time visibility into the progress of the development work; and therefore, they can plan the iterations better.

Use Case: JIRA integration with VersionOne
Problem statement: The project management and development team are using VersionOne as a project management system and JIRA as a development system. If these two systems are not synchronized, the Project Manager doesn’t have clear visibility into efforts taken to complete a task, status of a task, and similar details to plan incoming customer requests.
Solution: When JIRA and VersionOne are integrated, the Project Manager will have real time visibility into the work of development team, which in turn will improve the overall planning and estimation process.
- The Project Manager logs a ‘user story’ in VersionOne.
- The ‘user story’ synchronizes to JIRA.
- The development team breaks the ‘user stories’ into ‘tasks’ in JIRA and log their effort hours.
- The ‘tasks’ in JIRA are synchronized to ‘Actuals’ in VersionOne, which is the effort tracking entity.
- The Project Manager, therefore, has clear and real-time visibility into how the development work is progressing.
