Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit AFPR-I-7429 Update JIRA integration when feature ranking changes in Aha.

Please update the integrations with JIRA and Azure DevOps to exchange story/epic ranking within a release Merged

As a developer, I would like to see my backlog ordered by the same release rank in Aha so I know what to work on next.

Currently the integrations do not support item ranking being exchanged and this causes the need to either manually reorder backlogs in the development tools to match Aha or do some kind of hacky workaround to perform Sprint and Release planning activities. We need the systems to exchange Rank so the teams understand backlog priority.

The point of the integration is to have systems that support product planning and strategy activities communicate priority and context to the system that supports development activities. Without a clear understanding of item priority, the team backlogs do not match the release backlog in Aha. I understand there is a limitation due the different Azure, Jira and Aha architectures and approaches to ranking, but I believe this is a problem the is highly worth solving for Aha, in working with the other vendors, if it is truly to be the tool for planning and communicating portfolio priority. If we have to curate and prioritize the backlog in the development systems separately, it begs the question as to why do it in two places.
