Syncing Productboard initiatives with Jira issues

Productboard initiatives are synced with the linked Jira issues. Though customizable field mapping is not available there are some default field mappings:

  • Jira issue summary to Productboard initiative name
  • Jira issue description to Productboard initiative description
  • Jira issue’s start date to Productboard initiative timeframe’s start date
  • Jira issue’s end date to Productboard initiative timeframe’s end date
  • Jira issue status to Productboard initiative status

Two-way syncing is available for Summary, Description, Start, and End date.

Status syncing only works in one direction: from Jira to Productboard. If the status is changed in Jira it will update the status in Productboard but not the other way around.

Status mapping is not yet available for initiatives but there are some default statuses mapped:

  • Jira "To Do" status is mapped to Productboard Upcoming initiative status
  • Jira "In Progress" status is mapped to Productboard In Progress initiative status
  • Jira "Done" status is mapped to Productboard Completed initiative status
Note: One-time import is not yet supported for initiatives.
