Customization options

Here are all the available options for Asana and Jira:

Filter Asana tasks with rules

Unito will sync all tasks by default, but you can customize your workflow by syncing only some of them. You can use Asana tags or custom fields (Text and Number only) to do this. Learn more about using rules here.

Filter Jira issues with rules

You can filter which type of issues you want to be synced to Asana (complete guide).

One-way syncing

You can choose to sync only from Asana to Jira or Jira from Asana. Here is how it works.

Map your Jira and Asana users

Here is a complete article on how to sync teammates.

Default type for new Jira issues

Unito lets you choose which issue type should be created in Jira each time a new task is synced from Asana.

Sync closed work items

Unito will automatically sync open items automatically. But here is how to also sync closed items prior to the flow creation.

Prefix Asana task title with Jira issue number

Unito doesn't sync the issue number is Asana by default but you can enable that in your flow settings under the Asana tab.

Here is how to do it.
