Jira with ServiceNow Integration Use Case

Jira
ServiceNow_new_logo

Our ServiceNow Jira integration offers a few possible use cases where you can sync events, incidents, CMDB CIs, and more. Here is one of the most common integration scenarios we have seen. 

The helpdesk team receives a new incident in their ServiceNow queue. After investigating the issue, they found out that the problem was the result of a software bug, and the DevOps team should handle it. That is the perfect opportunity to integrate ServiceNow and Atlassian’s Jira

Thanks to ZigiOps offering seamless Jira-ServiceNow Integration, the ITSM team doesn’t need to open a Jira issue manually. The integration platform creates it automatically and updates it in real-time via a secure bi-directional synchronization between ServiceNow and Jira. 

The communication between the helpdesk team and the developer working on the bug is effortless. It doesn’t require additional tools: everything takes place in the comments. Automatic synchronization with log files, traces, issue links, or other attachments. That helps streamline defect tracking and resolution, improves change request management, and prevents communication bottlenecks. 

Once the developer fixes the Jira issue, the ServiceNow incident is instantly updated. The end customer receives a notification that their problem is solved.

The ZigiOps connector for Jira and ServiceNow is a preferred tool by Atlassian users.

Why integrate Jira and ServiceNow?

First, integrating Jira with ServiceNow enables you to access both services and make them talk to each other right when required. Second, customer support and development team members can interact and collaborate in real-time when ServiceNow and Jira are integrated. As a result, support and development teams see increased productivity and faster resolution.
 
The information must be manually sent back and forth to share information and address customer tickets in these siloed systems. The best method to work together across teams to efficiently resolve customer tickets is to establish a successful synchronization of a bi-directional communication connection between the ServiceNow and Jira servers. Teams become more efficient and well-organized due to this form of communication across the systems, which also lowers obstacles to collaboration.

How Beneficial is the ServiceNow and Jira Integration?

Depending on the request, these two systems can mirror each other and execute an action in one system based on data input into the other. For instance, when a product fault is reported in ServiceNow, a Jira ticket is automatically created, synced with all comments and statuses, and resolved when the problem is fixed.
 
Benefits of connecting Jira and ServiceNow: 
 

  • Quickly resolving service tickets and enhancing the satisfaction of multiple customers.
  • Increasing service ticket status and IT process visibility.
  • The supported workflow includes cross-team collaboration.
  • IT spends less time transferring requests and tickets between systems and less time dealing with automatable lower-level client tickets.
 
Solutions on these two systems, like Jira and ServiceNow, are frequently linked to dozens, if not hundreds, of other systems. Application networks with reusable APIs enable IT teams to connect any system quickly and efficiently rather than having to recreate the same API with new code, even though there may just be one point that needs to be connected.

ServiceNow is one of the most popular IT service management (ITSM) applications. Atlassian’s Jira is a widely used DevOps solution used to plan and manage software development projects. Companies use both systems to distribute tasks between development teams and departments, manage their resources, and organize work. To do that successfully, they need an integration tool that seamlessly transfers information between the two. If you’re using the ServiceNow platforms separately without a combination of them, you risk creating silos, duplicates, or incomplete records. The results are incorrect handling of incidents or projects and teams not working in alignment. Your customer satisfaction metrics may suffer if the manual activity, such as creating tickets in the Jira instance from ServiceNow events or incidents, consumes a large portion of your resources.
