This integration is available from the Essential plan and above.

Jira is a software development tool used by agile teams.

Initial setup

To get started with the Jira integration, perform the following steps:

  • Open your translation project on Lokalise and click the More button.

  • Choose Integrations from the dropdown.

  • Find Jira Cloud in the integrations list and click Connect.

  • Click Connect again and login with your Atlassian account.

  • Give Lokalise access to your workspace and you are good to go!

Configuring Jira Cloud integration

Once the initial setup is completed, you'll see the following screen:

You can configure the following options:

  • Organization — your Jira organization that you would like to integrate Lokalise with.

  • Project — Jira project within the chosen organization.

  • Create a new Jira issue when — tick one or more events that should trigger creation of a new Jira issue (ticket). The created issues will be automatically linked to a trigger event.

  • Change Jira issue status when — tick one or more events that should trigger Jira issue update. Please note that this only works for the issues that were initially linked to a certain event.

  • Delete Jira issue when — tick one or more events that should trigger Jira issue deletion. Please note that this only works for the issues that were initially linked to a certain event.

  • Add comment to the Jira issue when translation task language is completed — this option applies to translation tasks only. As long as your tasks may contain multiple target languages, each language will probably be closed separately once all the corresponding items are translated. Therefore, when this option is checked the corresponding Jira issue will be updated with a brief comment mentioning which language was closed in the current task.

When enabling one of the options, you will be presented with the dropdowns to further customize the chosen options:

Please note that the elements provided in the dropdowns will highly depend on your Jira configuration.
