Explore & Link Issues in Jira from any Integrated Roadmap

When building roadmaps that help to show data from integrated sources like Jira, users have always said that they appreciate how Roadmunk goes the extra mile to provide a full-scope view of their issue details in beautiful, easy to share formats. In a huge step forward for teams working with Roadmunk's Jira Integration, we now support the ability to synchronize the relationships between issues you create in Jira with your roadmap items and visualize them in the same way you would visualize Linked Items on your roadmap.

As avid Jira users ourselves, we understand first-hand the power that this feature gives to our users. To be able to manage how your issues relate to each other from inside the roadmaps that you and your extended teams collaborate on is a huge leap forward for simplifying your toolkit and saves you the hassle of having to make updates across multiple apps.

When presenting in both the in-app and published experience, all Jira Item Links will use the same style of link line: a double line which makes it distinct from the Roadmunk-based Link Types which use a single line. As shown in the screenshot above, this really pops on the page and is an aesthetically pleasing way to highlight the relationships between items in the roadmap for yourself, your team, and your stakeholders.

The best part about this feature is that it is entirely up to you whether you use it - users are able to choose whether they include or exclude Jira Item Links on a roadmap-by-roadmap basis, meaning that you can present the same data in entirely different ways across different roadmaps. This is also a great option for creating stakeholder-specfic roadmaps where you may not want to showcase how the issues in your projects link to each other.
