We are proud to announce the launch of the third party app Jira Cloud Bot integration for Microsoft Teams. Jira is built for every member of your software team to plan, track, and release great software. Jira Cloud bot enables team members to easily find issues, assign them to team members, make edits, log time against an issue, watch/unwatch and vote/unvote on the issue.
You can start the conversation by mentioning Jira Cloud bot in the channel scope. In personal scope you do not need to mention the bot. You can start by searching for the work item using keywords or mentioning the direct action (ex: log) for the work item. From search results, selecting the work item you were looking for will open an actionable card which provides a quick summary of the along with several actionable options like assign, log work, watch etc. Edits made to the work item will refresh the work item card in its place. For example, If you update the priority from low to medium, work item card will refresh in place to who new priority.
