Advantages of Integrating Jira with Squadcast
You can use the Jira + Squadcast integration to streamline your incident response. This post outlines some of the advantages along with functionalities that come with this integration.
Easy Setup with both Jira Cloud and Jira Server The Jira + Squadcast integration is simple to set-up and allows you to map your Jira project and issues with your Squadcast service.
Incident Syncing Between Jira and Squadcast A Jira ticket created from Squadcast as an incident is linked to ensure easy navigation between the systems for a seamless experience. This way, you can manage everything from just one dashboard.
Creating Jira Issues From Within Squadcast You can configure your integration to automatically create Jira issues for incidents that come into Squadcast for specific services. You can also manually trigger incidents in Jira by enabling the manual mode to have more control over which Squadcast incidents should be created as Jira issues.
Create Incidents From Jira Server You can choose to send in alerts into Squadcast with Jira server as well. This will create an incident in Squadcast with bidirectional status sync.
Jira Server as an Alert Source If you want to use Jira server simply as an alert source, that is, to just send in every issue ticket into Squadcast as an incident, you can do so by using the Webhook.
Squadcast is an incident management tool that’s purpose-built for SRE. Create a blameless culture by reducing the need for physical war rooms, unify internal & external SLIs, automate incident resolution and create a knowledge base to effectively handle incidents.
