You can connect with platforms other than your Jira instance to plan and coordinate your team's work if they prefer to use different tools such as Trello, Azure, or another Jira instance. Currently, you can connect to Trello Boards; other platforms will be supported in the upcoming version of the App.

Once connected, you can add Trello Boards (including Cards, Lists, CheckItems, Checklists) to the scope of your Boxes and have all your work in one place.

Each connection has a dedicated section that you can use to define the scope and types of tasks to synchronize and the task structure.

Security and access

You can manage your connections in one of the following:

  • App configuration - go to Jira administration (or settings) > Manage apps > BigPicture configuration > Integrations, requires Jira admin permission.
  • Box type configuration - go to Administration > Box types > choose the Box type you want to edit > Tasks > Task structure, requires App admin security role.
  • Box configuration - go to Box configuration > Tasks > Scope definition, requires Box admin security role.

Managing connections

Main connection

Your Host platform or, in other words, the Jira instance you are currently using:

Editing connections

Click the pen button (icon) to change the connection name displayed in the Box Configuration > Tasks > Scope definition.

Adding new connections

You can add a new connection here, and it will be available to users in the Scope definition section of the Box configuration. Read more about adding new connections to external platforms.

Deleting connections

If you delete a connection, all the tasks added to the scope of the Box and its sub-Boxes will be removed.

Before you terminate a connection, make sure that users confirmed that it is no longer used; otherwise, they will be required to redefine the scope and lose some of the current task structure.
