Creating Jira Specific Views

Syncing your data is only half the journey when integrating with Roadmunk. After integrating your roadmap with Jira, we can explore building your visualizations. Similar to roadmap fields, there are different types of Jira fields. They are subject to the same formatting restrictions in Roadmunk (list, multi-select, text, numeric).

Common header fields

  • Epic Link*

  • Component

  • Label

  • Assignee*

  • Status

*These are data rich fields and will take longer to sync into Roadmunk

In addition to headers, Jira integrated Roadmaps can also make use of our colour formatting options. For example, most users enjoy the ability to colour their items by Status, Assignee or Epic Link.

Specific View Examples

Here are a few examples of how a typical user may set up their visualizations after syncing their data. Fields will vary depending on what your using within your Jira instance.
