JIRA Integration: Adding Master Feature, Initiative & Goal Record Links

The use case is so that those working primarily in JIRA can understand “why” they are being asked to deliver “what” has been requested.

In the screenshot attached, it shows a section of the JIRA issue interface. It then shows a tab created specifically for AHA information. This is viewing the issue type Epic. You can see the Aha rank & the Aha reference.

Clicking on the Aha reference will take the user to the feature in Aha. This will contain the same information as the Epic already in JIRA. When viewed in that lens, the value of this link is therefore limited.

As a user primarily operating in JIRA, understanding what helps to articulate the how, but understanding the "why" enables confidence that the "how" is correctly meeting the acceptance criteria to deliver what needs to be done.

The request is is to ask for additional record links to be possible at master feature, feature and story level. If we can send across the link to the corresponding goal, and a separate record link to be able to send across the corresponding initiative, this will help with the Why. Further, if a third record link can be added which enables features to send across the link to any corresponding master feature, then the JIRA user will get all the information they need to understand why they are being ask what it is they need to deliver.

    If you use master feature/epic in Aha! that does map to Jira's epic and you can link.

    Initiatives are not supported, but a similar type of relationship and need.

    It appears there are a few ideas related to this same need which all have lots of votes. Hopefully Aha! can review and merge to assess the value that everyone is needed.

    For us, we need initiatives in Jira so that engineering and see the value without navigating to Aha! as Jira is their primary source; they also have their own engineering roadmap for technology and we should be operating with the same list of overall initiatives for operational and financial reporting.

    We map aha features to jira epics. We also use Master Features in aha and would be great to be able to map a Feature's Master Feature ticket number to a custom field in the Jira epic for sorting / reference purposes

    I have to agree with Michelle - Using our resources to engineer workarounds in order to have Master Features indicated on our Jira records has been less than desirable. This should be easy...

    Seems like a pretty obvious miss that you can't integrate a Master Feature over to Jira.

    We would also like to map in Goals to Jira! I agree with Linda, as this is a field that we could map as string, custom field, etc. Any way to have our Jira visibility included is critical for our product planning process.

    Would love to add this functionality AHA. Please add. Would make our lives so much easier!

    Yes, I would like to be able to bring Goals over to Jira in order to be able to group various Epics that are across multiple Initiatives/MF.

    Come now AHA! - This can't be this difficult to add


Passing Aha Goals to JIRA

With Aha! initiatives = JIRA Epics, I want to have a simple way to group multiple Epics by Aha! Goals for reporting data from JIRA.

[Integration] Access on feature level the Master feature URL

Currently, when mapping integration with Jira or other, you can map the Master Feature name. We are missing the Master Feature URL access on the Feature fields. This will really helps our teams jump quickly between Aha and Jira (or other inte...
