Stay Ahead in the Game With Your Jira Salesforce Integration

Set up and configure connections between Jira and Salesforce, in any way you prefer. Control the direction of your data flow and choose between a one-way or a two-way sync.

Streamline your business workflows with automated, real-time Jira Salesforce sync. Reduce the need for manual work. Enhance control over data flow using custom triggers in the platform’s native query language.


Sync historical data with bulk operations in Exalate. Connect multiple existing entities using Bulk Connect. Start syncing entities automatically with the same trigger specifications using Bulk Exalate.


Let your developers implement various sync possibilities using the Groovy-based scripting engine. Create scripts that manage synchronization on your end without affecting the destination.

Test your connection, view sync status or connect existing entities with an integrated Exalate UI in Jira and Salesforce. Always stay up-to-date within the platform you use.

Decentralized Integration

Retain independent control of your integration, even in cross-company scenarios. Don’t worry about how adjustments made on one side will impact your existing configuration. There's no requirement to share credentials or administrative privileges, eliminating the risk of exposing sensitive data.

Sustainable Scalability

Begin with pre-configured connections for simple sync needs, then expand and accelerate your growth by employing custom script-based connections. Connect with your integration partners to foster better relationships.

Top-notch Security

Protect your sensitive data from unauthorized access with our single-tenant architecture. Stay ahead of any data breach or suspicious activity using advanced endpoint detection and response (EDR).

The advantage of Exalate’s decentralized architecture is that it’s not like a new learning curve for the customers to get into a new platform and figure out how they need to operate. They can just operate as they normally do, and that makes a huge impact on the overall outcome of security incidents.

Salesforce Jira Integration Use Cases (Basic to Advanced)

Work with simple integration templates or completely customize a sync between Salesforce and Jira.

Sync Any Data

Set up one-way or two-way syncs between new or existing Jira and Salesforce entities. Sync issues, epics, sprints, etc in Jira. Sync any Salesforce entity such as cases, accounts, opportunities, contacts, custom objects, etc. Map fields by configuring the sync rules. Start automatic sync with triggers. 

Control your Jira Salesforce sync at a granular level.

Sync Custom Objects and Fields

Sync standard and custom Salesforce objects with custom Jira fields. Update the connected Salesforce Account details from the corresponding custom field in Jira.

entity.entityType == “Custom Object Name”

replica.customFields.”CF Name” = issue.customFields.”CF Name”

Sync Date or Date/Time Fields

Sync custom fields in Salesforce like Date or Date/Time by converting them into a common format for Jira. 

import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.text.DateFormat;

def dateCustomFieldValue(replicaCustomField) {
    def datePattern = “yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.S”; // define the desired date/time format
    String dateString = replicaCustomField.value;
    if (dateString) {
        dateString = dateString.replaceAll(“\””,“”).trim();
        DateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat(datePattern);
        date = formatter.parse(dateString);
        return date.time;
entity.date__c = (Long) dateCustomFieldValue(replica.customFields.“DateCf”)
entity.datetime__c = (Long) dateCustomFieldValue(replica.customFields.“Date

Sync Multiple Related Salesforce Objects to Jira

Present a Salesforce case object containing a contact and a linked account on the Jira side.

if (replica.”TYPE” == “Case”) {
issue.projectKey = “UD”
issue.typeName = “Task”
issue.summary = replica.summary
issue.description = replica.description
issue.comments = commentHelper.mergeComments(issue, replica)
issue.attachments = attachmentHelper.mergeAttachments(issue, replica)
else if (replica.”TYPE” == “Contact”) {
def contact = issue.”SF Contact”
if (contact == null || contact.trim() == “”) {
contact = “””||Name:| ||Title:| |||Email:| || | |”””
def name = replica.”Name”
def title = replica.”Title”
def email = replica.”Email”
issue.”SF Contact” = “””|| Name | $name |
|| Title | $title |
|| Email | $email|”””
else if (replica.”TYPE” == “Account”) {
def name = replica.”Name”
def description = replica.”Description”
issue.”SF Account” = “””|| Name | $name |
|| Description | $description|”””

Elevate Comment Sync Capabilities

Sync comment threads and user mentions between Jira and Salesforce. Also, personalize the comment sync based on use case.  

replica.comments = issue.comments.collect {
    comment ->
    def matcher  = comment.body =~ /\[~accountid:([\w:-]+)\]/
    def newCommentBody = comment.body
    matcher.each {
        target = nodeHelper.getUser(it[1])?.email
        newCommentBody = newCommentBody.replace(it[0],target)
    comment.body = newCommentBody

Sync Picklist and Picklist Multi-select Fields

Select an item from a picklist field in the Salesforce case and sync it to a Jira issue’s custom field. 

//Jira outgoing sync
issue.customFields.“Hobby”.value = replica.priority?.value ?: “Running” 
//Running will be set as a default option if Priority has no selected option

//Salesforce incoming sync
entity.SuppliedCompany = replica.customFields.“text”.value

We can now handle around 500 customer incidents per week, thanks to Exalate, which is a very good result regarding the number of products we’re dealing with. It synchronizes 45x faster than our previous solution.
