What counts as an item in sync?

For Zendesk, Unito counts every synced ticket as an item in sync.

Custom fields and other options

Our Zendesk integration supports a number of custom fields and other customization options.

Custom fields

This integration supports the following custom fields: Date, Text, Dropdown, and Checkbox.

Note: Custom fields can't be used in rules.

Ticket type

When a Zendesk ticket is created to match a task in another tool, you can determine which ticket type will be created by default.

Ticket numbers as prefixes

You can have Zendesk ticket numbers automatically added as a prefix to the title of a work item in another tool.

Public comments

You can sync public comments from Zendesk to other tools.


We're constantly looking to improve our Zendesk integration to support the tool's growing list of features, fields, and use cases. Here are a few limitations you should be aware of:

  • Attachment streaming: This isn't currently supported.

  • Support views: Not supported when choosing your block of work.

  • Comments from other tools: Note that you won't be able to sync comments from other tools as public comments in Zendesk.
