DevRev for Jira app

The DevRev for Jira app enables a 2-way sync and migration process. Jira users can now access and interact with DevRev tickets linked to their assigned Jira issues, view internal and public comments, and resolve issues collaboratively. Additionally, efficiently communicate updates to all linked ticket owners in case of widespread issues. Interact with DevRev and Jira Airdrop directly from Jira.


DevRev for Jira app works only when Jira Airdrop is installed in your organization. Refer to Jira Airdrop for more information.


Any organization's administrator can install the DevRev for Jira app from the Atlassian Marketplace within their Atlassian site, enabling it for all users across the organization.
