Blueprint for Success: How Engineers Use the JIRA Integration

by Chuck Stimson


The BetterWorks JIRA integration captures data from JIRA and automatically updates your milestone's progress. This blueprint provides examples on  how to use the JIRA integration, as well as tips and tricks to get the most out of the integration.

Engineering Team Example:

Engineers can use our JIRA integration to track bugs that they have squashed. In the following example, Chuck is tasked with fixing 25 bugs over the course of the quarter. The JQL query in this case would have the assignee set to chuck, a label string that captures the status as a bug and the status as resolved. Combining these elements in a JQL string will automatically keep track of this objective without needing to manually update the BetterWorks system.



If you are a JQL expert, that is great! Feel free to search directly in BetterWorks like you would in JIRA using JQL. If you could use a bit more practice on JQL, no problem! Any basic search in JIRA can be converted to a JQL by clicking "Advanced" within JIRA. You can then copy this string and paste it into our search bar as a JQL query.
