What this article covers:

  • Best use cases for a Zendesk-Jira integration
  • What is synced between Zendesk and Jira
  • What is not synced
  • Zendesk-Jira sync customization options

With Unito, you can seamlessly collaborate with your IT and development teams who live in Jira without them ever having to use Zendesk! Here's how these two tools come together with Unito.

Best use case

What is synced?

Note: after the initial sync, the Zendesk ticket description cannot be updated due to its read-only first comment nature. Any changes on the synced task description or fields of the description footer cannot be reflected in Zendesk.

A field you'd like to sync is not listed? Contact us, we may already support it through a manual configuration.

What is not synced?

Is there a feature you'd really like? Contact us, we prioritize based on user requests.

Customization options

Here are all the available options for Zendesk and Jira:

Sync Zendesk public comments

By default, only internal notes will sync but you do have the option to sync the public replies also. Here's how it works.

Filter by tag or label

Unito will sync all tickets and issues by default but you can customize your workflow by syncing just some of them (complete guide).

Filter by ticket type

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

One-way sync

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