Get Started

Welcome to Workflow Steps for Jira

Our little app complements Slack’s Workflow Builder and allows everyday users to create integrations and automations with all of their Jira instances, without any coding whatsoever.

Workflow Steps for Jira offers the following steps, which you can use to build awesome workflows:

  • Create Jira Issue - Dynamically supports the fields that make up your issue type
  • Update Jira Issue - Update status, assignee, etc., or add a new comment
  • Prompt for Jira Fields - Prompt users about a status, Jira username, or issue key
  • Extract Slack Message Content - Copy info from Slack into a Jira issue

Get started by downloading/importing our ready-made workflow templates. They include workflows for super-useful processes, like automating onboarding tasks, using emojis to turn Slack comments into Jira-issue comments, submitting and handling bug reports, and more. So easy!

You can configure connections and access your account details on the app home screen, where you’ll also find lots of ways to get in touch with us. We hope to hear from you!
