Please add support for Master Features within the Aha <=> JIRA interface.

Given "Aha! is for the "why" and "what" and JIRA is for the "how."; Master Features are useless unless we can implement them alongside JIRA.

Release time frame 1 month
    Dec 14, 2017

    We have launched an enhanced Jira integration. This integration will allow you to map Aha! master features to epics and other issue types in Jira, along with several other new capabilities including the ability to:

    • Set record mappings for Aha! initiatives, releases, master features, features, and requirements and link them to nearly any corresponding record type
    • Map default or custom fields in Aha! to any “like” field and specify which direction the updates should flow (e.g. from Aha! or from Jira)
    • Automatically send outgoing changes from Aha! or choose to review and approve them
    • Import records directly from Jira to make getting started in Aha! easy
    Check out the blog post for more details.

    Please, just let us know when approximately it is planned to release master features integration with Jira epics so we can plan acordingly in our company

     I hope this will help resolve our integration issues.  Mapping Jira epics to initiatives just doesn't work that well.  They never show any level of completion based on work done in Jira, and they mostly just sit there not taking advantage of what initiatives are meant to be for in Aha.  But the most frustrating thing is that because the integration is entirely keyed on the Initiatives, our Jira epics that span multiple releases constantly have their features remapped to whatever fix version the initiative got associated with first.  Will master features be able to span multiple releases?  If a team splits a story into two in Jira, I can't have Aha moving it to a different release.

    Many Thanks

    We are getting close to release on the ability to map JIRA Epics to Master features. It is part of a major rework of how integrations operate that we have been working on for quite a few months. 

    The votes in the ideas portal make a difference for features that get shipped - have a look at the popular ideas which have already shipped - it is just that the most popular features also tend to be some of the largest, so they take time to implement :-)

    This is pretty urgent for us. Having just set up all the master features as epics in AHA then manually created these epics in JIRA and then manually sorted them all only to watch them all happily re-map back to the original two initiatives at the first sync. . And now, of course, all the dev see presented in the JIRA backlog is everything mapped to one of two EPICS (initiatives) which makes it very difficult to work with as there are no longer that nice level of granularity to group the user stories in understandable chunks of work.  Sigh.......... Just seems to be a lot of duplication with AHA at the moment rather than a nice helpful seamless workflow between the two. Doesn't feel to me as if the ideas portal is very effective as the new stuff getting drip fed out doesn't seem to match the user voting?

    I'd like to ask the same question, any news/update on the planned timeline for this one? Next week looks good!

    Is there a short term work around for this?  Any way to link an aha master feature to an issue as if it were a feature?

    . If Carslberg made product management software they would have integrated and mapped master features to EPICS and called them EPICS. .

    When can we expect this integration to be shipped?

    I see this is marked "planned" This would have a huge benefit for us as well - is there a timeframe you can share?

    Agree with all comments here, we have engineers who track major features in JIRA as epics so that each task, requirement, improvement, etc are all associated and grouped nicely. This would be HUGE, I'd +5 vote this if I could!

    I agree with original poster and Michael Morrison's comment, I've been racking my brains trying to work with Initiatives and Features, and adding Master Feature is a perfect solution for Aha, but with no JIRA integration it renders the whole thing utterly pointless.

    I get it that we're all iterative and agile and not everyone integrates with JIRA but this was an oversight to not at least immediately produce a planned release date for the integration. It only needs to be a tick box and a drop down. Link EPIC to Initiative or Master Feature. Real simple but resolves a massive headache.

    Thanks in advance

    I agree with this request, but please keep in mind existing integrations. We're currently linking Aha! features to Jira epics, and Aha! requirements to Jira tasks. If that breaks, we're going to be in a world of trouble.

    Looking forward to see Master Features being available for JIRA integration as Epics!
