Why connect bob with Jira?

bob-Jira integration is used to plan, track and manage projects with your bob HR data connected and synced to Jira. Create a Jira ticket when an employee is created for example, with a customized mapping of bob fields to Jira ticket fields.

How Does It Work?

Based on your configuration, bob can create a ticket based on a number of events that can take place in bob.

Possible bob events to trigger sync:

  • Employee joined
  • Employee created
  • Employee left
  • Workflow triggered
