Canny posts with Jira issues to automatically update Canny posts based on Jira actions.

Note: If you're managing more than one product, multiple Canny instances can also be connected to the same Jira instance.

How to set it up

Connecting Canny posts to Jira issues

Let's say an important customer requests a feature. Your team decides they want to build the feature. From Canny, you can push their request directly into Jira:

If the Jira issue already exists, you link that Jira issue with the feature request in Canny.

When viewing a Jira issue, you'll be able to see linked Canny posts.Β Likewise, when viewing a Canny post, you'll be able to see the linked Jira issues. This adds valuable context to both products!

Note: The Jira link is only visible to Canny admins. It is not visible to your end-users.

Syncing Statuses

Under the Jira settings page, you can create rules so that when an issue's status changes, linked Canny posts are updated as well.

Uninstalling the integration

If you are interested in uninstalling the Canny integration from Jira, it can be done through the same Manage apps interface as indicated above.

1. From your Jira dashboard navigate to Apps > Manage your apps > Canny > Uninstall:

2. Clicking the uninstall button will complete the uninstallation of Canny from your Jira workspace.
