Overview

Quantive provides both Jira Cloud and Jira Server apps for enhancing your Jira experience by integrating OKRs tracking in your JIRA issues.

This article provides information on how to install the Quantive app for JIRA Server. The app is called OKRs for Jira by Quantive.


Features

The application has the following features:

  • Tracking the progress of the linked Quantive Objectives in your Jira issues - Stories, Bugs, Features, Epics etc.

  • Tracking the Jira issues updates of summary, description, status, and assignees

  • Apply Jira issue updates to the linked Quantive tasks.
    A task in Quantive is an artifact that represents a unit of work that should be done to achieve an objective. Therefore, Jira issues are represented as a Quantive tasks. The app provides two-way synchronization between Jira issues and Quantive tasks.


Prerequisites

You must have a running Jira account.

You have whitelisted the Quantive Results REST API and Authentication domains. For more information see Whitelisting OKRs for Jira by Quantive | Quantive Help Center.
